Cristiano Ronaldo took just eight minutes to score on his Juventus debut

Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus

Almost 5,000 fans crammed into the compact "Gaetano Scirea" stadium in Villar Perosa at the foot of the Italian Alps, as supporters descended on the small town in order to catch a glimpse of the superstar attacker in his first appearance since signing for 100 million euros ($117 million) a month ago.

Just five thousand fans were packed into the stadium in Villar Perosa, an estate owned by the Agnelli family which has hosted the friendly since 1955.

There should be more fans at the match than the entire population of Villar Perosa, with the 5,000 tickets available long-since sold out and even more supporters desperate to try and catch a glimpse of their new idol.

Ronaldo's arrival had sparked rumours that the match would be moved to the Allianz Stadium such was the enthusiasm from fans after his signing, but the club chose to stick with the traditional bucolic setting.

The party atmosphere in rural Piedmont threatened to get out of hand as a fan seized on the opportunity to meet Ronaldo by running on the pitch to take a picture with him during the game.


Juventus club-record signing Cristiano Ronaldo scored on his first appearance for the Serie A champions on Sunday afternoon.

Admittedly, no one bothered to defend.

After he had finished with his autograph duty, Ronaldo put his game face on and only took eight minutes to score his first goal in black and white.

Ronaldo joined the Turin club from Real Madrid earlier this summer. He helped Madrid win four Champions Leagues titles - beating Juventus in the final in 2017 - and also won La Liga and the Copa del Rey twice.
