The 35-year-old, who finished the 2019/20 Serie A campaign with 31 goals, looks in great shape ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

Just days after becoming the first European player, and only the second worldwide, to score 100 goals at international level, Ronaldo netted his first Juve strike under new boss Pirlo in the manager's unofficial coaching debut for the club against Novara on Sunday.

Juve started a full strength XI in the first friendly of their pre-season, with new signings Weston McKennie and Dejan Kulusevski in Pirlo's starting line-up, while Arthur, who has joined the Bianconeri from FC Barcelona, was brought on at half-time.

Ronaldo, though, only featured in the first 45 minutes as the game against the Serie C side went into the break with a 1-0 scoreline.

The Bianconeri managed to add four more strikes in the second half following goals from Aaron Ramsey, Marko Pjaca and a brace by youngster Manolo Portanova.

Juventus will kick off their 2020/21 Serie A campaign with a home fixture against Sampdoria on Sunday.
