There has been some unsavoury tit-for-tat fallout over UEFA's decision to name Luka Modric, who captained Croatia to the runners-up slot at the World Cup, as its Player of the Year.

Cristiano Ronaldo had another game where he couldn't quite get it going as Juventus beat Parma 2-1. Even so, he played a solid game and he helped the team out. "I am really happy with the performance, the result and to give that good feeling to the fans".

Ronaldo has been left out of European champions Portugal's squad for the Nations League and friendly matches in the next week at his own request to focus on Juventus. Antonio Candreva, with his first Serie A goal since April a year ago, and Croatia World Cup forward Ivan Perisic added two more goals in the last 10 minutes as Inter cantered home, finally beginning to look like title contenders.

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo is reportedly desperate to join Juventus in order to reunite with former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

"He won't get more than 30 goals, in my view", Ferrara told Il Corriere di Torino.

In terms of pricing, Apple will possibly continue its $1000 (Rs 71,000 approximately) mark for the 6.5-inch iPhone XS . The new models will also reportedly increase in size, from a 10.5-inch version to an 11-inch and a 12.9-inch option.

"It's different in Italy and I am not saying that just because of the defenders we have here, but also the style of football".

"Usually the top scorer in Italy scores 26 or 27 goals".

Brought to Turin under a massive fanfare, Ronaldo had taken the huge decision to leave Real Madrid in search of a new club in Serie A and is now three appearances deep into his spell.

Ronaldo kept trying but it was a frustrating night for the World Player of the Year as Parma cut off the supply lines and prevented him getting in any of his dipping long-range shots.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor will be able to rest and improve his physical condition during the worldwide break, since he was not called up by Portugal for the Nations League.
