The third time could be the charm for Cristiano Ronaldo when his Juventus goes for their third straight win to open the 2018/2019 Serie A campaign, as the world’s most expensive player has yet to score his maiden goal in his new Serie A career, per PML Daily, but his chances may improve when The Old Lady takes on Parma, a team that spent last season in Serie B, in a match that will live stream Saturday from Stadio Ennio Tardini.
But just because the reigning champs, aiming for their eighth consecutive Italian top-flight title, are facing a newly promoted side, Juventus Manager Massimiliano Allegri has warned his team against taking their opponents too lightly, according to SB Nation.
“Juventus have always historically struggled in Parma. I believe that in the last 24 matches there they have won seven times Parma, there have been 10 draws and seven wins for Juve,” the manager said.
“It won’t be a walk in the park because titles pass through games like these. Parma will be up for it tomorrow night, they are a newly promoted side and we can’t go there with the wrong mentality, we must show them respect.”
In last week’s 2-0 win over Lazio, Miralem Pjanic and Mario Mandzukic had the goals while Ronaldo was again frustrated.

One of those goal-scorers for Juventus, however, may soon be on his way out of the club, which would clear the way for Ronaldo to get more chances at the net. Mandzukic is rumored to be a top transfer target in the January window for Premier League club Manchester United as well as Bundesliga contender Borussia Dortmund, according to Team Talk.
But Juventus, according to rumors reported in the Italian press, have made an attempt to retain the Croatian, offering him a “lifetime contract” at the club.
