Champions League: Ronaldo outshines Messi in 3-0 win

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice and Weston McKennie added another, as Juventus beat Barcelona 3-0 in a much-anticipated Group G finale on Tuesday.

The win saw the Italians top the table on head-to head results with Barca, leaving Lionel Messi & Co. to settle for second place on a disappointing night at the Camp Nou.

It was Ronaldo’s first meeting with Barca since leaving bitter rivals Real Madrid in 2018 and it did not take long for the forward to make his mark on the game.

The Portugal international tested Barca goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen early on, before opening the scoring from the spot in the 13th minute after being felled by Ronald Araujo.

Defender Danilo flashed an effort just wide as the visitors cranked up the pressure, with a stunning McKennie volley putting the Italian champions two goals up and in full control seven minutes later.
