Cristiano Ronaldo scored his very first free-kick for Juventus as his side ran out four-one winners over Torino.

It’s quite amazing that Cristiano Ronaldo has taken 43 attempts to score a free-kick for Juventus before he finally found the back of the net from a dead-ball attempt on goal.

The Portuguese superstar and his teammates were rampant as they rolled over Torino in the Derby Della Mole.

Paulo Dybala showed off some more fancy footwork in the box to open the scoring in the third minute.

In the 29th minute, Juan Cuadrado ran the best part of 100 meters, as he caught up with Cristiano Ronaldo who slipped the ball to his right-back’s feet.

The Colombian calmly whipped round the keeper to make it two-nil.

The visitors did pull a goal back before the break. Belotti converted from the penalty spot in the sixth minute of first-half injury time.

It was then in the 61st minute and at the 43rd time of asking in his Bianconeri career, Cristiano Ronaldo finally whipped in one of his trademark free-kicks.

What a shame the fans were not on hand to celebrate another milestone in the GOAT’s career.

Torino’s misery was compounded when Koffi Djidji inadvertently met Douglas Costa’s cross and turned it into his own goal.
