But Mario Mandzukic equalized, firing an overhead kick past Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Real then proceeded with an onslaught, restoring their lead through Casemiro’s deflected shot before Ronaldo scored at the near post from a cross by the outstanding Luka Modric.

Juventus’ luck got even worse when substitute Juan Cuadrado was sent off for a second caution after a clash with Sergio Ramos.
