Ronaldo missed an open goal in the second half as he got his legs in a tangle but it did not matter as Mario Mandzukic tapped into an empty net to add to Miralem Pjanic's first-half opener.

The 33-year-old failed to score in his Serie A debut against Chievo Verona which ended in a 3-2 win for the reigning Italian champions last weekend.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor joined the Serie A champions from Real Madrid on July 10 in a 100-million-euro deal but has yet to score his first competitive goal.

The closest Ronaldo came to breaking his duck was with a vicious dipping effort on the turn in the 71st minute which was brilliantly turned over the bar by the Albanian goalkeeper.

"We did not expect this start, we wanted a different calendar", said Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi blaming "basic errors" after defeats against the top two teams.

'We must give something more because otherwise we can not get better results. "For us it is something exceptional, we are very happy to play with him", said Matuidi of Ronaldo.
