Cristiano Ronaldo is in line to make his Serie A debut for Juventus away to Chievo, while the release of the league's fixtures has handed AC Milan a daunting start.

Juve is aiming to win the title for the eighth year in a row and Ronaldo could be set to appear at the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi on the weekend of August 18.

The Portugal captain could then make his home league debut for Juventus, which sealed a deal worth €112million to buy Ronaldo from Real Madrid, a week later against Lazio.

Milan risks losing defender Leonardo Bonucci back to Juventus and Gennaro Gattuso's side has been handed a tricky test in the opening month of the campaign.

The Rossoneri open the 2018-19 season at home to Genoa but then travel to last season's runner-up Napoli before welcoming Champions League semi-finalist Roma to San Siro.
