Football: Tevez on target for Juve as Verona sink Milan
MILAN, Lombardy (AFP) - Argentine striker Carlos Tevez scored on his Serie A debut for Juventus in a 1-0 win at Sampdoria as AC Milan stumbled on the opening day of the new campaign with a 2-1 away defeat to new boys Verona.
Tevez, who scored when the champions secured the Italian Super Cup with a 4-0 rout of Lazio last weekend, was partnered up front by Mirko Vucinic as Spaniard Fernando Llorente was left on the sidelines.
And the former Manchester City striker, one of the few big names to make his way to Italy's top flight over the summer, made the most of his few chances when he tapped home a Paul Pogba ball just before the hour.
"It was the perfect night, especially as it's not an easy stadium to come to," said Tevez. "I still don't know my teammates well enough but I'm trying."
