Champions League round-up: Seven up for Cristiano Ronaldo as Zlatan Ibrahimovic rockets in

 

Cristiano Ronaldo made it seven strikes in three Champions League games this season by scoring both Real Madrid's goals as they maintained their 100 per cent record in Group B with a 2-1 win over Juventus at the Bernabeu.

Real, who brought on Gareth Bale with 23 minutes to go, took an early lead when Ronaldo rounded Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and finished superbly from a tight angle in the fourth minute.

Spain striker Fernando Llorente levelled for the Italian champions in the 22nd minute before the referee ruled Giorgio Chiellini had impeded Sergio Ramos at a free-kick in the penalty area and Ronaldo put away the spot kick.

Chiellini had a night to forget as he was shown a red card three minutes into the second half when he checked Ronaldo's run down the right with a flailing arm and 10-man Juve hardly threatened Real's goal for the rest of the game.

Roberto Mancini inspired Galatasaray to their first group stage win of the season, the former Manchester City manager's side storming into a 3-0 lead at home to Copenhagen by half-time. Wesley Sneijder, Didier Drogba, Felipe Melo put Gala in charge, Emmanuel Eboué setting up two of the goals. Claudemir got a late consolation for the visitors.

Also not wasting much time was Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who grabbed a first-half 18-minute hat-trick as Paris Saint-Germain brushed aside Anderlecht 5-0 in Brussels. Ibrahimovic ended up with four goals but it was his stunningly powerful 30-yard half-volley for his third goal that really caught the eye. Edinson Cavani got the other PSG goal, while Ibrahimovic missed a good chance at the end to become only the second player after Lionel Messi to score five in a Champions League game.
