JUVENTUS 0-REAL MADRID 3
Real Madrid ratings: Ronaldo, Isco and Modric shine
The Portuguese striker scored an outrageous chilena and Isco and Modric added creativity and control in Real Madrid's midfield.
Keylor Navas: Spectacular stop on Higuain in the first half from point blank range. Safe with his feet when he had to start the game for Real Madrid. At the end, stopped another shot from Higuain that kept his clean sheet in tact.
Carvajal: Asamoah nearly conceded a penalty with an arm to the face of the marauding Carvajal. Did well defenisvely and put the ball on Ronaldo's foot for the chilena.
Varane: Could have scored with a header after ten minutes. Dispossessed Dybala on 20 minutes and was very good in the air and with the ball at his feet.
Sergio Ramos: Threw himself at a Dybala shot early on to deny Dybala. He will miss the return leg after a yellow for a foul on Dybala but won't be missed after the game finished 3-0.
Marcelo: Played the ball to Isco for the assist for Ronaldo's first. Douglas Costa caused problems down his side but he scored the third which might have been the straw that broke the camel's back.
Modric: Modric was excellent in midfield. Replaced by Kovacic in the 81st minute and was at the heart of everything Real Madrid did for most of the time he was on the field.
Casemiro: Perfect in his role and an excellent option behind Kroos and Modric. Threw himself around at the base of midfield and made a number of key interventions.
Kroos: Drove the ball against the crossbar on 35 minutes. As always, excellent in his passing and ran himself into the ground too.
Isco: His movement on the field sets him apart. He gives Real Madrid so many options with his running all over the field and is almost impossible so defend. Provided an assist for Ronaldo's first, which forced Juve to chase the game and eventually broke them.
Benzema: He was Real Madrid's worst player and it just wasn't his night. Replaced by Vazquez on 58 minutes.
Cristiano: Started on the left but is more of a centre-forward than ever. First goal was a lovely finish and the second was out of this world. Also assisted Marcelo for the third and had another couple of chances for the hat-trick.
Lucas Vazquez: Heavily involved when he came on. Buffon denied him just before Ronaldo's wonder goal.
Asensio: Put the ball on a plate for Kovacic, who hit the post. Game was already decided when he came on.
Kovacic: Came on for Modric on 81 minutes. His the crossbar but the game was over at that point.
