When Ronaldo’s shock move to Turin from Real Madrid went through in August, plenty of Juve supporters were expecting their new signing to keep up his incredible ratio of around a goal every 90 minutes, but his first three matches in Italy haven’t exactly gone to plan.
Ronnie drew a blank against Chievo, Parma and Lazio, but surely he would find the net against Sassuolo this afternoon, right?
Well, with Juve struggling to find their rhythm, the 33-year-old popped up to break his duck – even if he did benefit from more than a touch of good fortune:

Is this just the first of many for Ronaldo in a black and white jersey? How do you think he, and Juventus, will fare this season?
