Juventus came from behind to snatch a dramatic 3-2 win at Chievo as Cristiano Ronaldo made his debut for the Turin side on Saturday, although the Portuguese was not among the scorers in his first Serie A match.

Ronaldo was thwarted several times by veteran Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino and his handball in the build-up led to a late Juventus goal being disallowed.

Sami Khedira put Juventus ahead after three minutes but the visitors were stunned when Mariusz Stepinski levelled seven minutes before the break.

Emanuele Giaccherini converted a penalty against his former club to give Chievo a shock lead in the 56th minute, only for Chievo’s Mattia Bani, under pressure from Leonardo Bonucci, to deflect a corner into his own net in the 75th minute.

Juventus had a goal disallowed for handball by Ronaldo but, in the next attack, Federico Bernardeschi turned the ball in to give the champions a winning start. (Reuters/NAN)
