What better way for Ronaldo to mark his arrival at Juventus than a match against a team that has never beaten them since 2016
Allegri has been busy during the transfer window, having acquired the services of Can, Bonucci, Douglas Costa, Cancelo and of course CR7 among other signings. With that said, the Juve honcho has deployed his favoured 4-2-3-1 for a while now.
Liking to use pacey wingers in Costa and Cuadrado, he has often utilised Dybala behind Higuain in the main striker’s role. Ronaldo could play in the wings, as he has done in the past, but Allegri demands hard work from his players on the flank, bombing up and down the wing not only to attack, but to also track back and aid the defence.
However, Ronaldo requires an attacking partner to play to his best. Whether it’s Dybala, Mandzukic or someone else that plays alongside the Portuguese superstar, we may not see the very best of Ronaldo for a few months at least. But one thing’s almost certain is that Chievo will be shell-shocked.
Prediction: Chievo 0-2 Juventus
