Champions Juventus leave it late but win as Ronaldo fails to find net on debut

A late goal from Federico Bernadeschi was enough for Juventus to overcome a plucky Chievo side who looked set to spoil Cristiano Ronaldo’s first game for the Italian champions.

There was high drama in the final minutes of the game as it had looked as though Mario Mandzukic had scored a late header for the Juventus but the goal was overturned after a VAR decision which appeared to rule the goal out for a Ronaldo handball in the build-up.

However, Bernadeschi’s late impact was enough to secure the three points in the season opener as Juventus chase their eighth successive Scudetto.

Ronaldo came close on several occasions, notably a close shot in the first half and a bullet header early in the second but try as he might the Portuguese superstar was unable to break his personal deadlock for his new club.
