Massimiliano Allegri was pleased with the way Juventus dealt with the occasion of Cristiano Ronaldo's home debut against Lazio, although he insists it will take time for the champions to settle.

Ronaldo, 33, unintentionally played a role in Mario Mandzukic's second goal of the night on 75 minutes after Miralem Pjanic put the hosts in front at the Allianz Stadium.

However, Sami Khedira slammed his shot against the upright in Juve's first real threat on goal after reacting better to a pass meant for Ronaldo.

Lazio - fifth last season in Serie A - have had their worst start to the season in over a decade following last weekend's 2-1 defeat at home against Napoli.

The Portuguese turned the ball towards goal with his right foot but his left heel blocked the shot and the ball rebounded into the path of Croatia World Cup forward Mandzukic, who swept it home.

Ronaldo came close after 63 minutes but headed just wide after connecting with a Joao Cancelo cross and again threatened on 71 minutes but Strakosha tipped over.

The illegal streaming, along with the disappointing result, made those who paid to watch the fight even more furious. KSI said he would step into the ring with the victor and won against Weller at the Copper Box Arena in February.

Marco Parolo should have equalised for Lazio in the first-half stoppage time with a free header inside the box but guided his effort over the crossbar following a pin-point cross into the area by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Juventus Stadium was rife with anticipation prior to kick-off with this their first opportunity to see Ronaldo in action in Turin since he stunned the Italian giants with a staggering overhead kick in last season's Champions League.

"There was a risk of us getting carried away by the enthusiasm created by Ronaldo's first home appearance", added the coach, who picked Blaise Matuidi and Federico Bernardeschi ahead of Paulo Dybala and Juan Cuadrado. Ronaldo understands that and he is settling in very well.

'At times our play is too frenetic and at others we go to sleep, but we need to move the ball more quickly when the opposition tire.

Juve have six points from two games, Lazio have lost both their opening games, BBC reports.
