Real Madrid 3-0 APOEL: Cristiano Ronaldo’s brace gives defending champions a dream start

Cristiano Ronaldo

The Portuguese forwarder, Cristiano Ronaldo, has been out with a domestic ban, but was back to prove how important he is as he shot Real past APOEL in the Champions League.

Real Madrid began their campaign to win a third successive UEFA Champions League with a comfortable 3-0 win over Cypriot outfit Apoel Nicosia in Group H at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo, making his first club appearance since August due to an ongoing domestic ban, finished a fine move early on to give Real the lead and then converted from the penalty spot early in the second half.

Skipper Sergio Ramos made it 3-0 in the 61st minute with a close-range overhead kick, and despite numerous further efforts from Ronaldo as he searched for his hat-trick, that is how the match ended in Madrid.
