"An exciting day in a special place that tells the winning story of Juventus", Ronaldo wrote on Twitter after the game.

Juventus B won the first game 3-2 but they have not beaten the first team in the match since 2005.

Cesare Bertoncello, from Turin, who was pointed out to AFP by security as being the first person to arrive in the queue to get into the ground at 0900 (0700 GMT) recalled the dominating presence of the Agnellis in years passed.

How many goals do you think Ronaldo will score this season?

The Portuguese beat an off-side trap as he was came face to face with the goalkeeper, he then took his time to apply the finish in style.

It took Ronaldo eight minutes to find the back of the net as he latched onto a pass from Federico Bernardeschi before calmly slotting home.

"Maybe. Of course, it helps when you see the people like you, the supporters and club like you, the feeling is completely different".

The 33-year-old proved too much for Juve's youth players, laying on winger Douglas Costa for a shot that crashed off the post and creating the first of Paulo Dybala's brace thanks to a shot that was well saved by young stopper Leonardo Loria.

As is custom, the game was interrupted in the second half for a pitch invasion and the game ended with Juventus picking up a comfortable win. Ronaldo tries to keep the ball up for his teammate but mis-controls the ball leaving him red-faced and his opponents in stitches.

Juventus kick off their Serie A title defence at Chievo next Saturday and all eyes will be on Cristiano Ronaldo to see if he can replicate his incredible La Liga goalscoring form in Serie A. Spoiler, he probably can.

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