Unstoppable Juventus maintained their flawless start to the season after 10 matches when first-half goals from Rodrigo Bentancur and Cristiano Ronaldo gave them a 2-0 win at Udinese in Serie A on Saturday.
It was his fourth this season for Juventus, with the 33-year-old celebrating wildly with his teammates. "I know Cristiano Ronaldo very well and I fully believe his word when he says he would never commit a crime like this".
"CRSexe", was the front-page headline on Rome-based Corriere dello Sport, referring to the allegations.
Meanwhile, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has opened an investigation into the matter.
Portugal said Thursday Ronaldo will play no part in the country's next four internationals, but national coach Fernando Santos gave him his backing.
Others backed the Serie A champions, however, saying they were merely following the line of "innocent until proven guilty" and carrying out their "duty of care" as Ronaldo's employer.

Just two weeks ago, shares in Juventus rose 180 percent to a record level of over 1.80 euros.
Nike has said it is "deeply concerned" by the allegations against one of their marquee athletes whose relationship with the USA sportswear giant is rumoured to be worth $1 billion (€869 million). But sponsors Nike and video game maker EA Sports have expressed concern about the allegation.
Allegri after the game reiterated his statement from Friday that Ronaldo is "serene" on the pitch but otherwise wouldn't otherwise speculate on the state of the star player's mind amid the rape accusation.
However, the Italian club's reaction to the issue has angered some fans.
Oddly enough Cristiano Ronaldo's current club Juventus have chosen to stand by their star player and have released a number of tweets to show support towards the forward.
The defending Serie A champions' tweets were widely panned on social media as "dismissive" and "insensitive".
German news outlet Der Spiegel reported last week that Mayorga was seeking to declare the alleged non-disclosure agreement void, as she has continued to suffer trauma over the alleged incident and has been emboldened by the MeToo movement.
