Cristiano Ronaldo double helped to defeat Barcelonaby 3-0

Barcelona’s poor domestic form carried over into their European campaign as they were denied top spot by Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s first Champions League goals against Barcelona helped Juventus to a stunning 3-0 away win to top Group G.

On 12 minutes Juventus were ahead. Ronaldo was awarded a generous penalty after Ronald Araujo went shoulder to shoulder with him in the area. He sent the penalty down the middle for 1-0.

It was 2-0 on 20 minutes when McKennie scored with a flying volley past Marc Andre ter Stegen from Juan Cuadrado’s cross.

Half-time then disrupted an improving home display and Barca were dealt a further blow five minutes after the restart as Clement Lenglet was deemed to have handled, following a VAR check, and Ronaldo was again clinical from 12 yards.

A VAR call belatedly went Barca’s way when Ronaldo bundled the ball onto an offside Leonardo Bonucci, seeing a fourth goal struck off, but it did not impact an eye-catching result.
