Ron­aldo grabs brace as Real beat Ni­cosia 3-0

The Phnom Penh Post - - FOOTBALL -

CRIS­TIANO Ron­aldo wasted no time in show­ing Real Madrid what they have been miss­ing dur­ing his five-game do­mes­tic sus­pen­sion, by scor­ing twice as the hold­ers be­gan their Cham­pi­ons League de­fence with a rou­tine 3-0 win over APOEL Ni­cosia on Wed­nes­day. Ron­aldo, banned for push­ing a ref­eree af­ter be­ing sent off in the first leg of the Span­ish Su­per Cup, opened the scor­ing af­ter just 12 min­utes from Gareth Bale’s low cross. The Por­tuguese dou­bled his tally from the penalty spot be­fore Ser­gio Ramos’s over­head kick rounded off the scor­ing.
