Cristiano Ronaldo equalled the record number of goals in a UEFA Champions League group stage as Real Madrid CF all but qualified for the knockout rounds with a draw at Juventus.
The home team took the lead late in the first half with an Arturo Vidal penalty only for Ronaldo, with his eighth goal in four games, and Gareth Bale to turn things around quickly after the interval. In a vibrant contest, the Bianconeri responded and claimed a point thanks to Fernando Llorente's header – but nevertheless slipped bottom of Group B with just two rounds remaining.
I am happy because I saw my players fighting out on the pitch. They were brave and they did not fear Madrid. This is what we have to do to succeed.
Antonio Conte, Juventus coach
I'm leaving here feeling satisfied with the second-half performance. The reaction was very good on our part. After the break we were much better in terms of courage and aggression.
Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid coach
