There was huge build-up around the match as Cristiano Ronaldo made his home league debut for Juve, and the 33-year-old delivered a suitably lively - albeit goalless - performance.

It proved to be another frustrating afternoon for Cristiano Ronaldo, with the former Real Madrid man once again failing to score his first goal for Juventus.

Ronaldo couldn't find proper contact with the ball rolling under his foot, thankfully Mario Mandzukic was on hand to spare his teammates' blushes by tapping the ball into the net.

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.

It meant that Ronaldo missed an open goal, with Mandzukic scoring from the rebound to double Juve's lead.

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.

Although Ronaldo would be expected to start week in week out for Juventus, something which seems more likely after Gonzalo Higuaín joined Milan, manager Allegri claims the Portugal global will be forced to feature in a number of cameo appearances throughout the season. "We needed these characteristics in midfield today", he said.

'At times our play is too frenetic and at others we go to sleep, but we need to move the ball more quickly when the opposition tire.

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.

The result lifted Massimiliano Allegri's side to six points after their opening two fixtures while Lazio are still looking for their first points.
