A new era got underway on Saturday as Cristiano Ronaldo made his debut for Juventus.
The Portuguese superstar, who ended a nine-year stay at Real Madrid to join the Bianconeri, played the entire match as the reigning Serie A champions started the season with a 3-2 win against Chievo.
Ronaldo played as a lone striker and while fans questioned whether that is the best position for him, his manager was pleased.
“Ronaldo held out well physically, has only been training with us for seven days and did really well. It’s a pity he wasn’t able to score a goal,” Massimiliano Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.
While Ronaldo looked rusty, the same can’t be said for Lionel Messi.
The Argentinian produced an incredible performance in Barcelona’s 3-0 win over Alaves on Saturday evening
Messi scored two goals and he was at the heart of everything. It was a joy to watch - and it was only the first game of the season.
