Cristiano Ronaldo finally opened his account for Juventus, scoring his first competitive goal since sealing a move from Real Madrid over the summer.
It might not have been the prettiest goal he’ll ever score in his life, but boy, it must feel good for the Portuguese forward to finally get off the mark.
His Juve side hosted Sassuolo in the Serie A today and despite some voicing their concerns due to the fact that Ronaldo had yet to find the back of the net for his new club, at least now he’ll be safe in the knowledge that he has broken the deadlock.
He's off the mark! @Cristiano won't care that it's probably the easiest goal of his career. He is up and running and his three-and-a-half game drought (!) is over. It's @juventusfcen 1 – @SassuoloUS 0. Up and running! Subscribe – https://t.co/YbI6T6O8MU #CR7 #Ronaldo #Juve pic.twitter.com/IXWfTcdRI2

The fans went understandably nuts in the goal’s direct aftermath. It might not be much but Ronaldo has finally found his mark!
