- Parma vs Juventus clash saw the Old Lady start their Serie A title defence on a winning note
- Chiellini scored the only goal that separated both sides with just a tap-in in the first half
- Ronaldo's goal was ruled out by VAR while others were saved by the hosts keeper Sepe
Juventus got their Italian League title defence off to a winning start following their 1-0 win over Parma at the Ennio Tardini Stadium.
Cristiano Ronaldo played all 90 minutes of the encounter but it was Giorgio Chiellini that scored the only goal that ensured the Old Lady cart away maximum points away from home.
The 35-year-old sent the ball into the net with a back-heel after Alex Sandro's shot was on the verge of being blocked by the hosts defenders.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo had a chance to put the Turin side in the lead earlier in the game but his towering header from Samir Khedira's cross went way above the post.
Immediately, Roberto Inglese tried returning the favour with a counter attacking move but Wojciech Szczesny save the goal-bound shot from crossing the line.
Juve continued their attacking movement in the game as Ronaldo powered a low shot into Luigi Sepe's net but VAR ruled the goal out for offside.

Argentine forward, who spent some part of last season on loan at Chelsea Gonzalo Higuain was in build up to his side's goal that was ruled out by the referee.
Parma's goalkeeper Sepe seemed to be the hero of the match having denied Ronaldo on a couple more times before the final whistle as the visitors ran home with all three points after the game.
