Cristiano Ronaldo can expect to start a handful of games this season from the substitutes bench despite making a big money move from Real Madrid to Juventus this summer, according to head coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Lazio - fifth last season - have had their worst start in over a decade following last weekend's 2-1 defeat at home against Napoli.

Cristiano Ronaldo's first appearance at the Allianz Stadium for Juventus ended in victory, but the attacker's wait for his first goal goes on.

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.

Juventus will be hoping Ronaldo can inspire a fantastic season in Italy, with fans desperate to see their side perform in the Champions League.

I think in this way of football, if you don't cover the distances, you are in trouble. In quality we are going very well, but in quantity we have to improve.

The closest Ronaldo came to breaking his duck was with a vicious dipping effort on the turn in the 71st minute which was brilliantly turned over the bar by the Albanian goalkeeper. "There are times we are too frenetic and other moments when we go to sleep".

The search for Ronaldo's first Serie A goal continued firing blanks, as the Portuguese fired a free-kick against the Lazio wall before chipping in for Giorgio Chiellini who headed over the top. "He's a very humble guy and I'm very pleased with the impact he has made so far". Ronaldo has always spoken highly of Ferguson and credits him as his father figure who has helped him become one of the greatest footballers. "I dedicate the goal to the fans, my team-mates and the club".

In Saturday's second Serie A game, Ancelotti got his first home win as Napoli coach as the southerners fought back from two goals down to edge AC Milan.

AC Milan stunned the San Paolo when Giacomo Bonaventura's unorthodox volley put them ahead in the 15th minute and Davide Calabria drove in the second from Suso's clever layoff four minutes after halftime.
