Ronaldo scores in Juventus v Juventus B match

Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo has finally revealed why he chose to play for the Serie A champions.

The first team then had a goal ruled out for offside before the Portuguese was again involved as they did double their lead thanks to an own goal by the B team's goalkeeper.

Such was the dominance of the Agnellis over the town that deceased former club chairman Gianni Agnelli was mayor between 1945 and 1980.

In 2017/18, Ronaldo was his usual dominant self in Europe as he smashed 15 goals to top the Champions League scoring charts and fired Real Madrid to continental glory for the third straight year.

In fact, it took just eight minutes.

Interest in Juve and in Italian football has spiked following Ronaldo's arrival.

He was all alone and finished into the left side of the goal easily.

The chants of "Cristiano, Cristiano" had barely died down when the five-times Ballon d'Or victor provoked Juve's second by forcing the unfortunate youth team defender Riccardo Cappellini to poke past his own goalkeeper three minutes later.

Juve made it 5-0 early in the second half through Claudio Marchisio, before the traditional pitch invasion brought the game to a close in the 70th minute.

Strict security was put in place with Ronaldo featuring in front of just five thousand fans with a complete ban on the sale of alcohol.

Juventus, though, have signed Ronaldo not to cement their domestic dominance, after winning seven straight league titles, but to boost their global profile and bag their first Champions League triumph in over two decades.

Ronaldo will make his first appearance for the Serie A champions.
