CRISTIANO Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Franck Ribery were in dominant form as goals flowed for some of Europe’s top sides last night.

Ronaldo continued his blistering start to Real Madrid’s campaign when he struck twice in a 2-1 win over 10-man Juventus that put Real firmly in charge of Group B.

Ronaldo’s double took his goal tally to seven in three games this season, his first coming when he rounded Gianluigi Buffon and finished superbly from a tight angle in the fourth minute at the Bernabeu.

Fernando Llorente levelled for the visitors in the 22nd minute before Ronaldo put away a 29th-minute penalty. Giorgio Chiellini was sent off three minutes into the second half when he checked Ronaldo’s run.

Ibrahimovic scored four times – including a breathtaking 30-yard half-volley – as Paris St Germain humbled Anderlecht 5-0 at the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium. Edinson Cavani was also on the scoresheet.

Bayern Munich ace Ribery dazzled on his return from injury, scoring twice as the holders demolished Viktoria Plzen 5-0. Ribery scored first with a 25th-minute penalty and added a superb chip in the second-half.
