Juventus make recovering coach proud with opening Serie A win -- but there's no goal for Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo is happy with a win for Juventus but had a goal ruled out for offside.

    (CNN)There was no coach and no Cristiano Ronaldo goal but the Juventus juggernaut shows no signs of slowing.

    The eight-time defending champions opened the new Serie A season with a 1-0 win over Parma while new coach Maurizio Sarri continued his recovery from pneumonia.
    Ronaldo -- starting his 18th professional soccer season -- buried the ball into the back of the net but it was ruled out by VAR (virtual assistant referee).
      Bianconeri captain Giorgio Chiellini scored the only goal when he poked the deflected ball home and, afterwards, he paid tribute to Sarri.
