Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo Scores In First Juventus Friendly Apperance

The setting has changed, but the goalscoring has stayed the same.

After a wildly successful nine years at Real Madrid which yielded four Champions League titles, Cristiano Ronaldo made the move to Italian side Juventus in the summer, for around £90m.

That’s a staggering fee for a 33-year-old, but this is Ronaldo we’re talking about.

While the Serie A season doesn’t kick off until next week, Juventus fans are getting their first look at the great Portuguese as he takes part in a friendly against Juventus B, the Bianconeri’s second/feeder team.

Staying on brand, CR7 scored in the 7th minute.

In acres of space after a long ball from Filipo Bernadeschi, he won’t have an easier chance to score in his new colours, but Ronaldo dispatched it in style nonetheless.

Juve’s first competitive game of the season comes next weekend as they bid for their 8th straight league title, kicking off their campaign away to Chevio.
