  • Juve fans chanted and danced in the streets prior to watching Ronaldo in action

It took just eight minutes for the Juventus fans to see what they came for: A Cristiano Ronaldo debut goal.

Was it ever really in doubt? Ronaldo started his life at Juventus with a bang by netting the opener against their U19 side on Sunday before forcing an own goal after putting a defender under pressure.

Paulo Dybala stole some of Ronaldo’s thunder by adding a quick fire brace before half-time as Juventus went into the break in complete control.

Earlier on in the day, a sea of black and white descended upon the streets of Villar Perosa as Juventus fans turned up in their thousands in anticipation of catching their first glimpse of Ronaldo in action.

The 33-year-old, who signed from Real Madrid in a £100million deal earlier in the summer, made his first appearance for Juventus in their final pre-season friendly.

The buzz and excitement of getting to watch their new man in action made for an electric atmosphere as the Juventus supporters chanted and danced in the streets ahead of kick-off.

Some were carrying cardboard cutouts of their new hero Ronaldo as they made their way towards the ground while one fan even got ‘CR7’ shaved into the back of his head.

The friendly, which takes place every year, represents Juventus’ final test before they kick-off their Serie A title defence against Chievo next Saturday.

Massimiliano Allegri will be looking to make the most of the occasion as he takes one final look at his players ahead of the new season, but all eyes in the stands were only on one man.
