WATCH: Dani Alves scores first goal for Juventus, makes Barcelona fans cry


Barcelona legend Dani Alves has scored his first goal for his new club, Juventus.

Alves' first Juve strike came in the second half against Cagliari on a Wednesday night Serie A match in Turin. The play is very smart, and Miralem Pjanic's corner-kick straight into Dani's right foot is a work of art. Alves is lucky to have his shot deflected, but a goal is a goal and he celebrated it anyway.

Long distance goals from Dani Alves are not new. He scored a bunch of those at Barça, and this one against Real Madrid will never leave our memories. It's still very odd to see Alves wearing another shirt after nearly a decade of fantastic services as a Blaugrana, and he left Barça as a true legend, one of those rare players that make history in a club.

Hopefully Barça don't face Juve in the Champions League this season, because it won't be easy to root against Dani if he returns to Camp Nou as a Bianconeri.
