Cristiano Ronaldo's debut at Juventus was forced to shorten after his fans stormed the court to attack him and his teammates during their last preseason friendly on Sunday.

Thousands of fans of Juventus arrived for the friendly against their U-19 team in anticipation of seeing Ronaldo make his first appearance and get what they came to see.

Ronaldo started the match and scored the occasion with a goal before an own goal and a quick shot from Paulo Dybala gave Juventus a comandable advantage before the break.

The festive atmosphere in rural Piedmont threatened to get out of control when a fan took the opportunity to meet Ronaldo while running on the pitch to take a picture with him during the game.

The fan was quickly treated by the butlers and escorted out of the field. Shortly after the game resumed, Claudio Marchisio scored a fifth after finishing a well-worked team play.

But minutes later a large swarm of fans invaded the field and the game was abandoned later.

There is an invasion of tone during this match every year, but it usually takes place at the end of the match.

But with the added excitement of being close to Ronaldo, the fans could not wait and the game was canceled 20 minutes before the 90.

The friendly, which takes place annually, represented the final test of Juventus before they begin their defense of Serie A title against Chievo next Saturday.
