Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo in both halves and a third by Marcelo helped Madrid to establish a commanding 3-0 lead over Juventus in the first league of the UCL.

Ronaldo broke the deadlock three minutes into the game after being at the end of a low-cross from Isco putting Madrid right in the driving seat and became the first player to score in 10 consecutive games(15 goals) in the competition's history after registering his second of the with a magical bicycle-kick. Cristiano Ronaldo was also in the thick of the action as he assisted Marcelo's goal and Madrid's third of the night. 

Paulo Dybala was given his marching orders after being shown his second card of the night for fouling Carvajal to compound a miserable outing for the Bianconeris. 

It was Juventus's first defeat in all competitions since November and their first defeat at home to Real Madrid since 1962.
