Miralem Pjanic and Mario Mandzukic scored as Juventus beat Lazio 2-0 on Cristiano Ronaldo’s home debut on Saturday.

A packed house in Turin welcomed Ronaldo and his new team-mates and, but the Portuguese’ wait for a first competitive goal in black and white went on as Pjanic struck a fine first-half effort to set Juve on course for victory.

Sami Khedira hit the post inside the opening 20 minutes when the ball ran away from Ronaldo in the area, before Federico Bernardeschi cut in from the right to draw a superb stop from Thomas Strakosha with a teasing curler.

Lazio gained a foothold in the game either side of the interval, but failed to forge a breakthrough, with Ronaldo coming close when he nodded wide midway through the second half.

The new Bianconeri number seven went closer still when Strakosha tipped a dipping effort over the top and that shot lifted the crowd ahead of Mandzukic’s decisive goal.

Ronaldo might have netted the second goal, but found his feet in a muddle as he seemed destined to convert from close range and the ball instead flicked backwards for Mandzukic to volley in and clinch the points for the Old Lady.
