MANILA, Philippines – A late goal by Cristiano Ronaldo saw Real Madrid grab a crucial morale-boosting 3-2 win over Manchester City in their Champions League opening encounter.
Ronaldo scored a 90th minute winner to give Real a winning start in Champions League Group D after they had twice fallen behind on a nervy night at the Bernabeu.
Real made a stuttering start in defense of their La Liga title, earning only four points from a possible 12 so far.
The team is now on top of the group on the number of goals scored with Borussia Dortmund. Mornings @ ANC, September 19, 2012.
