Embattled Ronaldo scores for Juventus against Udinese

Embattled Ronaldo scores for Juventus against Udinese

The 21-year-old got off the mark for the club with a poacher's goal, nodding in from close range ahead of Ronaldo, but his forays forward did not have a negative impact on his usual style of play, as he battled away and was neat in possession.

Roma registered a third straight league win and fourth in all competitions with a 2-0 victory at Empoli.

Ronaldo's coach at Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri, said the striker is "doing well" and is "ready to play" when the Turin giants travel to Udinese in Serie A on Saturday. "He trains hard, he is serene and today he scored an extraordinary goal".

Ronaldo has been accused of rape by Kathryn Mayorga, who claims the Juventus forward assaulted her in Las Vegas in 2009. Police have also re-opened an investigation. "His professionalism and his composure on and off the pitch are not in question", Allegri said Friday. "I see him calm in training. He trains, he plays and he scores goals - that's the most important thing".

Ronaldo played last for Juventus last weekend in Serie A, but midweek he missed a Champions League game because of an automatic suspension from a red card, and has been left out of Portugal's squad for their upcoming worldwide matches.

Cristiano Ronaldo is back in Juventus' starting lineup, a week after a Nevada woman filed a civil lawsuit accusing him of rape nine years ago.

"And certainly what we all wish for is that nothing can ever stain that record of Ronaldo". It's because he came to Juventus.

Speaking about other players who could potentially become the best in the world, Dybala has also hailed Real Madeis playmaker Isco, and insists he has always dreamed of being recognised as the finest player on the planet.

Another fan, Fabrizio Paduna added, "It's just rumours for me. I really don't think it's true".

On Thursday, Juventus sent a statement of support and called him a "great champion".

EA Sports has deleted Cristiano Ronaldo's image from the cover picture of Federation Internationale de Football Association 19 video game on its website. Another headline said "World of Juve shaken" after the club's share price plunged nearly 10% on Friday.

In his pre-match press conference Friday, Allegri said Ronaldo seemed "calm".
