Ronaldo’s goal came just two minutes from time after Aaron Ramsey’s pass had split the visitors' defence towards the Portuguese who fired home to the far corner in style to make it 3-0 with Juve grabbing all three points in their season opener.
The goal means Ronaldo reaches yet another milestone as he has now scored in 19 consecutive seasons in his professional career.
