Juventus win despite Ronaldo's straight red, City stunned

It will be difficult for my son to be better than me- Ronaldo lailasnews

However, the Portugal global turned things around when he scored a brace in his side's 3-0 win over Sassuolo at the weekend.

Ronaldo's red card. Make your own mind up.

It should have been a return to the happy hunting ground of the Champions League for Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus.

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.

He was forced to watch the rest of the match from the dressing room, as Juventus triumphed 2-0 thanks to two penalties converted by Miralem Pjanic in the absence of the spot-kick specialist.

Captain Paul Pogba produced an outstanding performance garnished by two goals to help Manchester United to a resounding 3-0 win at Swiss debutants Young Boys.

The night was meant to be all about Ronaldo's first Champions League appearance for the club he has tormented so often down the years for Real Madrid.

Bayern Munich beat Benfica 2-0.

Lyon took the lead in the 26th minute through Maxwel Cornet, who drove home after Fabian Delph made a hash of clearing a Nabil Fekir cross from the left.

In Group F, Shakhtar Donetsk twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Hoffenheim, who scored goals through Florian Grillitsch and Havard Nordtveit.

The video assistant referee (VAR) system is not being employed in the Champions League this season.

Ronaldo's former club, champions Real Madrid beat Roma 3-0.

The introduction of Sergio Aguero as a substitute revitalised City after the break, and Bernardo Silva turned in Leroy Sane's cutback with 23 minutes still to play.
