Champions League Champions League Report: Real Madrid 2 Sporting CP 1

Champions League: Bruno Cesar put Sporting CP on course for a first win at the Santiago Bernabeu, but Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata had other ideas.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata spoiled the party for Sporting CP with two late goals bringing Real Madrid from behind to win 2-1 in a dramatic Champions League Group F encounter at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The reigning champions looked set for a shock defeat before Ronaldo stepped up and picked out the top-right corner directly from a set-piece 25 yards out, and Morata secured all three points with a 94th-minute header.
Ronaldo's 350th appearance for Madrid came against the club where he made his debut, and it looked set to be a frustrating one when Bruno Cesar put Sporting ahead two minutes into the second half.
The Portuguese side had coach Jorge Jesus sent to the stands for his remonstrations at referee Paolo Tagliavento's decision to book William Carvalho for a challenge on Luka Modric, and from there his team came under increased pressure.
