Cristiano Ronaldo: Rues missed chance for Real Madrid against Paris Saint-Germain

Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain drew 0-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday night, with Juventus also held to a goalless draw.

Real remain top of Group A after the draw with their closest challengers, who held firm in France to lie second in the group on goal difference. Cristiano Ronaldo had the best chances to break the deadlock.

Malmo are third in the group after a 1-0 home win over Shakhtar Donetsk courtesy of a goal from Markus Rosenberg. Nikola Djurdjic spurned the chance to double the lead when he missed a second-half penalty.

Anthony Martial’s good run of scoring form continued, meanwhile, as he got the equaliser in Manchester United‘s 1-1 draw at CSKA Moscow.

CSKA missed a penalty through Roman Eremenko before Seydou Doumbia opened their account. The Russian side lie second in the group on the same points as third-placed United.

Wolfsburg top the group after second-half strikes from Bas Dost and Max Kruse saw them beat PSV Eindhoven 2-0, the visitors missing a penalty through Jurgen Locadia.

Atletico Madrid’s 4-0 home win over Astana moved them top of Group C ahead of Benfica, who lost 2-1 away to Galatasaray.

Saul Niguez, Jackson Martinez, Oliver Torres and a Denis Dedechko own goal earned the three points for Atletico.

Nicolas Gaitan had given Benfica the lead, but a Selcuk Inan penalty and a Lukas Podolski strike wrapped up the win for the Turkish side before half-time.

Juventus remain top in group D despite being held to a 0-0 home draw against Borussia Moenchengladbach.

A late winner from Kevin De Bruyne earned Manchester City a vital 2-1 home victory over Sevilla in the other game in the group.

The Spanish club went ahead through Yevhen Konoplyanka and Adil Rami put into his own net to level matters at the break, but the Belgian struck in injury time to leave City second in the group.
