Ronaldo to make Juventus debut vs. Chievo Verona

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will make his Serie A debut in his side's season-opening clash with Chievo on Saturday.

The Bianconeri's record recruit has been training with his new teammates less than a month, but Allegri is satisfied he has entered into his team's philosophy and is ready to play at the sold-out Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi.

"Ronaldo is playing tomorrow," Allegri said. He also confirmed that Wojciech Szczesny, Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Miralem Pjanic will be starters.

Juve will begin the seventh defence of their Serie A title with a trip to Chievo, although all eyes will be on how they fare in the Champions League this season, following Ronaldo's arrival.

Allegri has warned they must not ignore their domestic duties, however, insisting that Chievo, who were almost relegated last season, will be as challenging as they get.
