MADRID, Spain -- Cristiano Ronaldo maintained his impressive form in the Champions League by scoring two goals to give Real Madrid a 2-1 win against 10-man Juventus on Wednesday.
The Portugal forward angled a shot behind goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to score in the fourth minute from a sublime pass by Angel Di Maria.
Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal then pulled down Sergio Ramos in the area and Ronaldo confidently converted the penalty in the 29th for his seventh Champions League goal this season.
Fernando Llorente had equalized for Juventus seven minutes earlier by squeezing the ball between goalkeeper Iker Casillas and the post in the 22nd. Llorente, a former Atheltic Bilbao player, has now scored six goals against Madrid, including three at the Santiago Bernabeu.
