CRISTIANO RONALDO MAKES HOME DEBUT AS JUVENTUS BEAT LAZIO 2-0

Culled from BBC

Cristiano Ronaldo made his home debut for Juventus as they beat Lazio to extend their winning start to the season, BBC reported.

Miralem Pjanic's delightful finish from 25 yards put the Italian champions ahead before Mario Mandzukic struck from close range after half-time.

Ronaldo, a £99.2m summer signing from Real Madrid, has not scored in two Serie A games.

Sami Khedira hit a post for Juve when the game was goalless.

Fans held up banners and posters supporting Portugal forward Ronaldo, making his first competitive appearance for Juve at the Allianz Stadium.

However, he touched the ball only once in the Lazio penalty area in the first half and, shortly before Juve's second goal, had a dipping shot superbly tipped over by Thomas Strakosha.

Ronaldo also missed inside the six-yard box, Joao Cancelo's low cross hitting his heel only to rebound to Mandzukic, who doubled Juve's lead.

Juve have six points from two games, Lazio have lost both their opening games.

Cristiano Ronaldo, 33, is settling into life at his new club in Italy after his £100million move from Real Madrid to Juventus earlier this summer.

The Juve star took to Instagram last week Tuesday, to share adorable picture of his young family, his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, and four children, all wearing the newest Juve shirts and caption, 'The Juventus family! Until the end'

My view: I don't get why people are moaning about Cristiano Ronaldo not scoring, he'll start scoring goals when Allegri put him left and deploy Mario Mandzukic through the middle, It makes sense, as Mandzukic has the physical presence, ability and tactical awareness to complement Ronaldo the way Benzema did in Madrid.
