Cristiano Ronaldo Leads Juventus In Training As He Aims To End Serie A Goal Drought Against Sassuolo

Cristiano Ronaldo shoots for goal during a training session in Turin on Thursday

It is three games without a goal for Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus, but he cut a relaxed figure in training on Thursday.

The Portuguese superstar will aim to break his duck for his new club when the Italian champions host Sassuolo on Saturday.

But with Juve already sitting pretty at the top of the league table, Ronaldo’s lack of a finishing touch has yet to come back and bite them.

Ronaldo was seen cuddling up to former Real Madrid team-mate Sami Khedira in training, seemingly unaffected by his slow start to life in Italy.

And he should be fresh for the weekend after he was left out of Portugal’s squad during the recent international break.

Ronaldo joined from Real in a £100m move this summer after scoring an incredible 450 times in 438 appearances for the Spanish giants.

Juventus fans will hope that Ronaldo’s form in front of goal will return in time for their Champions League opener in Valencia next week.

The 33-year-old scored 15 times in 13 games last season as Real claimed a historic third European triumph in a row.

While Ronaldo has yet to hit the heights, it has been business as usual for Juventus in their quest for an eighth successive league title.

Victories over Chievo, Lazio and Parma have made it nine points from nine from the opening three games of the season.
