SERIE A – Juventus continues its merry way in the league. The Turin club won a third success in three games on Saturday night after their victory on the Parma (1-2). Mario Mandzukic (2nd) and Blaise Matuidi (58th) gave the men of Massimiliano Allegri success. Cristiano Ronaldo did not score.
Juventus continues its ideal season start. The seven-time Italian champion has signed the pass of three by winning the Parma (1-2) on Saturday night. Blaise Matuidi gave the victory to the Bianconeri in the second half (58th) while Juve was sometimes in trouble against the promoted. Cristiano Ronaldo, meanwhile, still has not opened his goal counter. The players of Massimiliano Allegri temporarily take the lead of Serie A while Parma is sixteenth.
Against Parma, the Turinese took the game by the right end with an opening of the early score of Mario Mandzukic (0-1, 2nd). But this goal has not cooled the ardor of the Parmesans. At the instigation of a sharp Gervinho in his shots, they found the crossbar on a free kick (14th), before equalizing thanks to the Ivorian (1-1, 33), who took advantage of a not very frank intervention by Wojciech Szczęsny . The Polish goalkeeper then caught up with a decisive double intervention at the very end of the first period against Antonio Di Gaudio (45th + 1). This was the turning point of the match.
New frustrating evening for Ronaldo
Despite the XXL squad available to him, Massimiliano Allegri continues to trust Matuidi and his midfielder who breaks his lines with his races. Is right. It was on this type of appeal that the world champion gave the advantage to Juve a heavy hit on the bar (1-2, 58th). By bringing Paulo Dybala , still a substitute, and Douglas Costa , the Italian coach has tried to make the game definitely turn in favor of his team. But the success has, in particular, fled the Brazilian, who scored on the post (73rd). She was not there for Cristiano Ronaldo, who had a frustrating evening. In three outings in Serie A, the former Madrid has still not found the net.
Cristiano Ronaldo has taken more shots without scoring (23) than any other player in Europe's Top 5 Leagues this season.

The five-time Golden Ball had several chances (26th, 50th, 54th) but he sinned in the finish, as in his first two games with Juve. His signs of annoyance are clearly visible, but the Portuguese can reassure himself with the Champions League, which is coming to the fore. While he will not play in Portugal during the international break, he will have two weeks ahead of him to complete his acclimatization before the start of the group stage of the C1 scheduled on 19 September against Valencia in Mestalla. And as all Europe knows, when the smell of the most prestigious competitions is present, Ronaldo tends to be clinical as ever …
