Cristiano Ronaldo’s debut was overshadowed by Federico Bernardeschi who scored a last gasp winner in a five-goal thriller.
All eyes were on the Portuguese superstar in his first appearance for the club but it was the super-sub who salvaged all three points at the death.
Sami Khedira opened the scoring for the champions with just five minutes on the clock.
But Juventus were forced to show why they head into the season as red hot favourites to retain the title after falling 2-1 behind in the second half.Chievo were 13 minutes away from snatching a priceless win when Mattia Bani’s unfortunate own goal handed Juve the momentum heading into the final stages of the contest.
And the turnaround was completed when Bernardeschi turned in Douglas Costa’s low cross to spark mass celebrations among the visiting players.
