Miralem Pjanic's half-volley gives Juventus the lead on Cristiano Ronaldo's home debut

It was Leonardo Bonucci's first home game of the season back with the club he left last summer and he was booed by the Juventus fans in the first half.

The search for Ronaldo's first Serie A goal continued firing blanks, as the Portuguese fired a free-kick against the Lazio wall before chipping in for Giorgio Chiellini who headed over the top.

Miralem Pjanic and Mario Mandzukic struck in a routine victory for Juventus, and the latter pounced on an incredible miss from Ronaldo to get his goal.

Allegri made his first change, bringing on Douglas Costa for Bernardeschi on 60 minutes, with Juve in firm control.

Lazio, who suffered a 2-1 home loss to Napoli, pressed at the other end and the Adam Lulic's shot sailing narrowly wide saw them coming close to a breakthrough on 12 minutes.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina worldwide pounced on a loose clearance and controlled a wonderful half-volley from the edge of the area, firing it low into the bottom corner.

Ronaldo nearly got his goal midway through the second half, only for a deflected ball to bounce back off his heel just yards from the line to tee up Mandzukic to tuck home into an empty net.

Alberto's curling effort from distance was inches away from giving Lazio a leveller, but the tide soon turned in the home side's favour.

Midway through the second half, Ronaldo came within a whisker of opening his Juve account as he forced a smart save from Thomas Strakosha with a dipping shot from outside the box.

Lazio's young goalkeeper denied Ronaldo again a matter of minutes later, intercepting a low cross from Joao Cancelo with the former Real Madrid man primed for a tap-in.

The Portuguese star then fluffed his lines in the six-yard area by clipping the ball with his heel but Mandzukic was on hand to apply the finishing touch and give Juve an insurmountable lead.
