Cristiano Ronaldo said on Saturday that he is "sure" that he will help secure Juventus a record-extending eighth successive title.

Speaking to Juventus' club TV station, the 33-year-old former Real Madrid attacker said: "I'll give my best and I'm sure that we'll win the title together."

The Portuguese superstar is set to pull on a Juve shirt for the first time in the Bianconeri's traditional friendly match against their own youth team, following his move from Real for 112 million euros (131 million dollars).

The game will take place in little Villar Perosa on the outskirts of Turin - and the match is a sell-out, with Juve fans, eager for a glimpse of their new hero, having snapped up all 5,000 tickets.

Juventus' first game in defence of their Serie A title is against Chievo Verona on August, 19, 2018.
