Cristiano Ronaldo opens the scoring as Juventus win on his debut

During the years, we played a few times against Juve and I had a special feeling that the Italian supporters like Cristiano.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal for Juventus today, albeit in the pre-season friendly, against a Juventus B team.

Established custom dictates that five minutes after half-time fans invade the pitch, bringing the game to a halt as fans charge after and greet their heroes.

But with the extra excitement of being within touching distance of Ronaldo, the supporters couldn't wait and the match was called off 20 minutes before the full 90.

Such was the dominance of the Agnellis over the town that deceased former club chairman Gianni Agnelli was mayor between 1945 and 1980.

The Portugal star joined Juve from Real Madrid in July in a €112million deal, ending a nine-year association with Los Blancos after winning three successive Champions League titles.

Goalscorers score goals and nothing has changed for Cristiano Ronaldo, who is off the mark in Italy.

It was Ronaldo's prowess in Europe that caused Juventus to splash a club record fee, as they look to put two lost finals in the last four years behind them and try for European glory for the first time since 1996. Ten minutes later, he pressured Riccardo Capellini into an own-goal to make it 2-0 to the Bianconero, the name given to Juventus because of its famed white-and-black jersey.

The 33-year-old was named in the starting line-up alongside Douglas Costa and Paulo Dybala, as Juve faced off against their B team.

As is custom, the game was interrupted in the second half for a pitch invasion and the game ended with Juventus picking up a comfortable win.

Ronaldo was mobbed as fans attempted to grab a selfie with him.
