Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to score on his Serie a debut as Juventus struggled to earn three points at Verona.
The world was watching Ronaldo to make an impact on his debut match but failed. He made an impact at Juventus off the field; the club’s Twitter followers increased and T-Shirt sales went up.
“We knew that we would be facing a side that was already top of the class, anyway, having won seven consecutive Serie A titles, but now they’ve got Cristiano Ronaldo as well and are even stronger,” said goalkeeper Stefan Sorrentino before the game.
But CR7 was presented with few clear-cut openings. He still went close to scoring, with a shot from just inside the area on the half-hour mark, but the ball rolled the wrong side of the right post.
Juve won the match 3-2.
