Real Madrid claimed an impressive Champions League win against Juventus last night - thanks to a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese superstar opened the scoring in the fourth minute before Juventus striker Fernando Llorente levelled the scoring.

Ronaldo then popped up to restore Madrid's lead in the 28th minute, when the 28-year-old converted a penalty.

Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema should have sealed the three points just after the hour mark, but the out of form striker failed to hit the target from two yards.

Benzema has scored just four goals in 11 games for Real Madrid and has recently lost his place in the France national side to Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.

The former Lyon striker better hope Didier Deschamps did not see this horror miss, otherwise he may even be dropped from the entire Les Bleus squad!
