Two goals from Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Jese sealed a victory for the Spanish side in a Champions League away game against AS Roma.
Ronaldo opened scoring in the 57th minute when Marcelo scooped a pass down the left wing for him, with the Madrid star taking a clever touch inside the box, confusing the backtracking Florenzi.
The shot took a deflection off the Roma captain, who had spread himself in front of Ronaldo in the desperate style.
Both teams subsequently lost several scoring chances, before substitute, Jese doubled Madrid’s goal at the 87th minute, establishing the side’s sudden dominance in the second half.
He scored after dribbling down the inside-right channel.
The away goals give Real Madrid an edge against Roma when they will play a return match in Madrid in few weeks.
Before the game, there were fears that a reported lack of closeness between Ronaldo and teammates, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale could affect team.
