Cristiano Ronaldo admits to feeling 'tense' about Juventus start

Barcelona President: Juventus will win Champions League with Ronaldo Mesut Ozil Names Former Teammate 'One of the Greatest Footballers Who's Ever Lived'

Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off on his Champions League debut for Juventus but two Miralem Pjanic penalties secured the 10 men a dramatic 2-1 win at Valencia. The Russian visitors came from 2-0 down to draw their opening game 2-2. After the red card the match was made even.

This was the first time the legend was sent off in 154 Champions League appearances.

Mario Mandzukic and Sami Khedira had already missed glaring opportunities before Ronaldo's dismissal and, after a shaky few minutes following the red card, Juventus got back into its stride and took the lead on the stroke of halftime.

"I would say it was nearly flawless, I'll keep the goal chances that we have created".

The Italian champions defended well thereafter to keep the hosts at arm's length, although Juve goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny did save a Daniel Parejo spot-kick in the final minute of injury-time.

Elsewhere, tournament favourites Manchester City were stunned at home by Lyon on Wednesday.

Soon after Madrid would have their second when Gareth Bale finished off a blistering counter-attack after Modric played him in behind the Roma defence with a incisive through ball to the Wales global.

A three-goal win against Roma at the Santiago Bernabeu gave three-time reigning European champions Madrid three Group G points in their first game in the competition under new head coach Julen Lopetegui.

And Mariano Diaz curled home late on from 20 yards for a deserved third.

Paul Pogba's brilliant opening goal was the catalyst as Manchester United overcame a hard start to beat Young Boys 3-0 in Bern in their opening Champions League game on Wednesday.

Pogba bossed midfield on the artificial pitch and fired United ahead in the 35th minute with a goal of the highest quality, while he added a second from the penalty spot just before the break.
