Ronaldo FINALLY scores for Juventus

Wow! Cristiano Ronaldo has finally scored his first goal for his new team, Juventus in the fourth match of Serie A against Sassuolo. The 5-time Ballon d'Or winner joined Juventus from his former club, Real Madrid in deal worth $140.80 million in the summer. 
Many people and pundits were surprised by the fact that he was unable to score in the first three Serie A games for his new club. Ironically, Cristiano took same amount of games (4) and shots (28) to score for his former employers, Real Madrid.
The 33-year-old has found it hard to settle in his new team and was seen to be frustrated by the lack of goals in his opening matches. But, he has received constant support from his manager Max Allegri and his team-mates during this goal drought.
His first goal itself was no more than a tap-in. Leonardo Bonucci hooked a right wing corner towards the far post where a panicking Gian Marco Ferrari headed against his own post, leaving Ronaldo to mop up the rebound from less than a yard out.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star celebrated the goal with his trademark “Suuuuuuuuu” celebration. It took Ronaldo only 15 minutes to double his goal tally and team’s lead. Fellow summer recruit Emre Can led a counter attack and fed Ronaldo, who did the rest and smashed a low left-footed shot across a helpless Andrea Consigli.
Juventus Fans will be hoping that it is the start of something special and Cristiano Ronaldo will emulate his extraordinary goals-to-game ratio of Real Madrid career at his new club, Juventus.
