Ronaldo fires blank again in Juventus’ home win

International News Ronaldo reveals what Ferguson stopped him from doing 10 hours ago

Ronaldo couldn't find proper contact with the ball rolling under his foot, thankfully Mario Mandzukic was on hand to spare his teammates' blushes by tapping the ball into the net.

Italian champions Juventus won their opening Serie A fixture 3-2 at Chievo last Saturday when Ronaldo made his debut.

Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, again preferred ahead of new signing Mattia Perin, made two key saves in the first half, turning Senad Lulic's shot around the post and then charging out of his goal to block a risky Marco Parolo break.

"He's intelligent and understands that Italian football is different to that in Spain".

Thomas Strakosha in the Lazio goal superbly denied Ronaldo with a finger-tip save in the second half as the former Real Madrid man searched in vain for his first goal for his new club. "I'm happy with how he's fitting in, he is a very humble lad".




Lazio - fifth last season - have had their worst start in over a decade following last weekend's 2-1 defeat at home against Napoli.

The closest Ronaldo came to breaking his duck was with a vicious dipping effort on the turn in the 71st minute, but it was brilliantly turned over the bar by the Albanian goalkeeper.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said on Friday he would not hesitate to leave Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench if he felt the Portugal forward needed to save energy.

The news was certainly a shot in the arm for fans of Lionel Messi, with whom Ronaldo is constantly compared and measured against in the battle for the "best player in the world" and "GOAT" tag.

"For example, the wing is more covered with Douglas Costa, but we also know what can happen with CR7 there". Juventus is another culture. Ronaldo has always spoken highly of Ferguson and credits him as his father figure who has helped him become one of the greatest footballers.
