Top Juventus transfer, Cristiano Ronaldo, will make his Serie A debut today at Chievo, and the Gialloblu's coach, Lorenzo D'Anna is warning the seven-time defending champions and their Portuguese superstar, that they are in for a rough evening at the Bentegodi.

Obi who will seeking to make his 111th appearance in the Serie A will have to contend with the rampaging moves of Juventus new signing, Cristiano Ronaldo. He eventually scored in his ninth game for Manchester United when he came off the bench to strike in a 3-0 win against Portsmouth at Old Trafford, while it took him eight games to score his first senior goal for the Portugal national team.

"It was a victory that was needed", added Allegri.

Germany global Sami Khedira had opened the scoring after just three minutes at the Bentegodi Stadium for the seven-time defending champions.

Five-time Ballon d'Or victor, highest active global goal scorer, yet ace Portugal footballer Cristiano Ronaldo could not get away without doing a new-boys' initiation at his new club Juventus.

Goals from Mariusz Stepinski and Emanuele Giaccherini, the latter of which came from the penalty spot, appeared to have turned the game on its head.

Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny could do nothing to keep out his compatriot's effort, having replaced the departed Gianluigi Buffon in the Juventus goal for this season.

Juve thought they had won the game when Mario Mandzukic headed home in the last minute but, after a lengthy VAR review, the referee ruled that Ronaldo had handled the ball in the build-up and it was disallowed.

The 33-year-old will be eager to replicate a fraction of that glory as he enters the twilight of his career after joining Massimiliano Allegri's side.

Ronaldo also fired narrowly over from a tight angle on the half-hour, while he drew several smart saves from Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino, who is still going strong at the age of 39.
