Cristiano Ronaldo can't find the net with Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo can't find the net with Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo endured another scoreless afternoon for Juventus, although he did bag an assist in the Serie A champions' 2-0 win over Lazio.

Juventus' Mario Mandzukic celebrates scoring their second goal with Cristiano Ronaldo. His debut, however, proved to be a hard one against Lazio who finished fifth in the Serie A and level on points with fourth-placed Inter Milan last season.

Bernardeschi had another effort blocked and Ronaldo was denied before the interval when Thomas Strakosha saved his low shot.

Lazio's Marco Parolo missed a chance to equalise when his header flew over the bar just before the break.

Ronaldo in an interview with DAZN a sport streaming service talked of how the Scottish manager helped him become a World Class player, "Of course, in the beginning of my career he was so important to me because I moved from Sporting to Manchester and had that Portuguese mentality - too many stepovers, decision making was not the best".

The Juventus Stadium was rife with anticipation prior to kick-off with this their first opportunity to see Ronaldo in action in Turin since he stunned the Italian giants with a staggering overhead kick in last season's Champions League. "We needed these characteristics in midfield today", he said. "If anything, we need to be more alert for the rebounds".

AC Milan stunned the San Paolo when Giacomo Bonaventura's unorthodox volley put them ahead in the 15th minute and Davide Calabria drove in the second from Suso's clever layoff four minutes after halftime.

Zielinski pulled one back three minutes later, rolling the ball into the far corner from the edge of the area after Milan lost possession in their own half, and from then on a Napoli fightback looked to be on the cards.

There was another big cheer shortly afterwards when Higuain shot high and wide from his only real opening of the match.

When Lazio last traveled to Allianz Stadium in October 2017, it defeated Juventus in a stunning 2-1 result, issuing Juve its first home loss in over two years.
