Bale and Isco score as Real Madrid beat Roma

Bale and Isco score as Real Madrid beat Roma

The Portuguese forward, making his Champions League debut for Juve, appeared to grab Valencia defender Jeison Murillo's hair as they tangled off the ball midway through the first half and referee Felix Brych consulted his assistant behind the goal before showing the five-time Champions League victor a straight red card.

The win, however, took a backseat to the drama that unfolded in the first half.

This post will be updated. Ronaldo was being tracked by Murillo in the penalty box and aimed a small kick at his opponent as they tussled.

The reigning Italian champions lost to Ronaldo's Real Madrid in the quarterfinals last season and they're hoping he can lead them to their first European crown since 1995-96.

Paul Pogba's brilliant opening goal was the catalyst as Manchester United overcame a hard start to beat Young Boys 3-0 in Bern in their opening Champions League game on Wednesday.

The strained relationship between Bale and Zidane may have led to the Welshman looking for an exit this summer had the French coach not made a decision to bow out after winning a third straight Champions League in just two and a half years in charge.

"People always ask me about what it was like to play with Cristiano Ronaldo and all I can say is that I've never seen a person like him", Ozil wrote.

On the stroke of halftime Daniel Parejo's reckless challenge on Cancelo earned him a booking and gave Pjanic the chance to send 10-man Juventus into the interval ahead.

Juventus won the game 2-0.

Speaking about Ronaldo in the BT Sport studio, his former team-mate at Manchester United Rio Ferdinand said: "Cristiano Ronaldo can be temperamental".

"We all suffered together in the final stages of the game but this is a great group and we proved it again tonight".

"What I've said before is that whoever we pick will be a wonderful solution and I have nothing else to add to that", he said.
