After the international break which was observed to enable national teams to engage in various friendlies and competitive fixtures, all attention would turn back to the European club scene, as domestic action resumes across the continent.
The primary focus would be on the biggest leagues in Europe, with the Italian Serie A getting more than its fair share of attention, not least because of the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 33-year-old Champions League record goalscorer completed a shock transfer to Juventus during the last transfer window, after nine immensely successful years at the Bernabeu with Real Madrid, and with him went a massive set of feverishly dedicated supporters, who would be watching his every move at the Old Lady.
His start to life in Serie A with the defending champions hasn’t gone according to plan, as after three matches, Ronaldo is yet to get his first competitive goal for Juventus.
That is a relatively strange scenario for Ronaldo, as he is used to banging goals aplenty, cumulatively being the record goalscorer for Portugal, Real Madrid, and the Champions League.
However, Ronaldo’s propensity for goalscoring means it is only a matter of when and not if he would get his debut goal for Juventus, and with Serie A action returning this weekend, we might witness Ronaldo opening his goals chart for Juventus.
