Cristiano Ronaldo can't find the net with Juventus

That Mandzukic goal added to Miralem Pjanic's earlier strike to seal a 2-0 victory, marking six points out of six for the reigning champions as they seek an eighth straight Scudetto.

Juventus goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, again preferred ahead of new signing Mattia Perin, made two key saves in the first half, turning Senad Lulic's shot around the post and then charging out of his goal to block a unsafe Marco Parolo break.

Ronaldo went for the tap-in but ended up kicking the ball into his other foot and behind him into the path of Mandzukic, which Tuttosport actually described as a "back-heeled assist". "I'm happy with how he's fitting in, he is a very humble lad". Lazio were second best for much of the contest and slumped to their second successive defeat following an opening loss to Napoli.

In the first home game for the seven-time defending champions, Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa started on the bench, with Allegri opting for Federico Bernardeschi and Mandzukic to spearhead the frontline with Ronaldo.

However, he touched the ball only once in the Lazio penalty area in the first half and, shortly before Juve's second goal, had a dipping shot superbly tipped over by Thomas Strakosha.

But the hosts broke through on the half-hour when Mandzukic knocked down a cross for Pjanic to power a half-volley into the corner.

"He is the best player in the world". Of course, we will learn from his game. Juventus is another culture. "If anything, we need to be more alert for the rebounds".

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.

But last season's runners-up turned it around in a second half with Piotr Zielinski bagging a brace and Dries Mertens sealing victory.
