  • Juventus Boss Allegri “Winning Scudetto More Difficult Because Inter & Others Have Strengthened”

But the Flying Donkeys were not intimidated by their lofty rivals with ex-Juventus and Napoli player Emanuele Giaccherini setting up Mariusz Stepinski to head in a 37th-minute equaliser following poor defending by Leonardo Bonucci.

Despite having a superstar status, Cristiano Ronaldo was not given any special treatment and was hauled up in front of the squad along with Joao Cancelo, Mattia Perin and Emre Can.

Just about time now as Cristiano Ronaldo is minutes away from his Serie A debut.

The video was shared by Miralem Pjanic on the photosharing application Instagram.

Chievo is one of the minnows on which Ronaldo was expected to feast.

Juve then fell behind when one of their former players converted a 56th-minute penalty. His curling shot was heading for the side netting.

A dramatic finish then unfolded as Juve were denied a Mandzukic goal that was initially awarded.

Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d'Or victor, teams up with Paulo Dybala after Gonzalo Higuian was shipped off to AC Milan, which remains a work-in-progress club entering this season.

Ciro Immobile scored a stunning opener for host Lazio but Arkadiusz Milik leveled in first-half stoppage time and Lorenzo Insigne netted the victor in the 59th.

Ronaldo, signed from Real Madrid in July, was thwarted several times by veteran Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino and his handball in the build-up led to a late Juventus goal being disallowed, following a VAR review. The most pleasing thing from the Bianconeri's point of view was that others stepped up and they found a way to win.

Yet Bernardeschi's introduction from the bench changed all that as he produced the corner from which Bani scored an own goal before grabbing the victor himself. In delivering when it mattered, he took a leaf straight out of Ronaldo's book. It beat Chievo Verona 3-2 despite entering the 75th minute down 2-1.

- Juventus conceded at least two goals in the first Serie A matchday for the first time since 1998.

Across the more than 90 minutes played, Cristiano had 57 touches, of which 8 were shots at goal.

After supplying the cross that led to Chievo's own goal, the former Fiorentina attacker got himself into the box to prod home Sandro's cross, gifting Juventus an absolutely priceless win on the opening day.
