A football star from Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo finally made his first professional debut with Juventus in the match against Chievo Verona, on Saturday night, August 18, 2018. Although he not able to score a goal in the match, Ronaldo is claimed to have been able to intimidate Chievo Verona players throughout the 90 minutes of the game.
As is known, Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Juventus in the summer transfer market this year through pocketing no less than 112 million euros from Real Madrid. Of course, the arrival of the 5 Ballon d’Or winners is so lifting the prestige of Italian Serie A in the eyes of the world. Juventus are believed to be increasingly empowered with the presence of Ronaldo, and the fans are looking forward to the 33-year-old’s debut.
His new debut arrived on Saturday night local time yesterday (18/08) in the first Italian Serie A Giornata match against Chievo Verona. Juventus managed to win a 3-2 victory over the hosts. Unfortunately, Ronaldo, who performed quite well in the match, failed to score. However, Chievo Verona’s coach, Lorenzo D’Anna judged that Ronaldo had managed to intimidate his players throughout the game.
“There was disappointment with this result, but we still thought our game was very good. We started the game a little intimidated by Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo. However, as the game progresses, we can adjust and create a number of opportunities. ”
“I tried to reduce Juve on the right side and pressed more to the left side. Tension rose in our first home match of the season against Serie A champions. But we played well. We need to improve our defense from dead ball situations, even though everything takes time. We try to be more solid, “D’Anna told reporters after the match.
Juventus’ decisive goal was scored by Federico Bernardeschi in the closing minutes of the match.
