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).
