Ronaldo ended his record-breaking tenure with Real Madrid this summer in a shock switch to Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo has recalled the "unbelievable" standing ovation he received from Juventus fans when he scored that sensational overhead kick in the Champions League quarter final first leg in Turin last season. "Thanks to all of the fans for their great support!"

Juventus B won the first game 3-2 but they have not beaten the first team in the match since 2005.

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.

Cristiano Ronaldo wasted no time in presenting himself to the Juventus faithful, scoring in his first appearance in the Bianconeri shirt after less than 10 minutes on the field.

Ronaldo formed a front three alongside Dybala and Douglas Costa, a trident that will surely produce plenty more goals as the Serie A season gets underway.

You can't help but be excited at Ronaldo's arrival in the Italian capital.

Having taken extended leave after the 2018 World Cup and his move from Real Madrid, the Portugal striker was finally introduced to fans in Sunday's friendly against the club's Primavera side.

Dybala then struck after Ronaldo's shot was blocked as Juve's first team filled their boots.

Ronaldo, who joined the Serie A champions last month in a deal worth a £100million, made the flawless start to life in Turin.
