UCL: Ronaldo brace powers Madrid, Man City and Man U finally win

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to move level with Raul as Real Madrid’s all-time leading scorer as the Spanish giants eased to a 2-0 victory over 10-man Malmo in their Champions League meeting.

The Portuguese made the breakthrough with a clinical finish in the first half after being played through on goal by Isco.

Yoshimar Yotun was then sent off for the hosts for a second bookable offence, before Ronaldo touched in Lucas Vazquez’s cross to seal the points in the final minute.

Manchester United came from behind to pick up their first win of the 2015-16 Champions League group stages this evening, beating Wolfsburg 2-1 at Old Trafford.

The match was just four minutes old when the visitors broke the deadlock as Daniel Caligiuri beat a sloppy offside trap before stroking the ball past David de Gea.

Juan Mata levelled things up from the spot half an hour later, however, and after the break the Spaniard’s flick allowed Chris Smalling to turn the ball home from close range for what proved to be the winner.

Sergio Aguero scored a 90th-minute penalty as Manchester City came from behind to beat Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1 in Group D.

After Raffael’s penalty was kept out by Joe Hart in the first half, Gladbach recovered well to take the lead with a calm finish from Lars Stindl early in the second half.

Nicolas Otamendi responded with an equaliser, and Aguero made the difference when it mattered to win the penalty and score from the spot late on.
