Karim Benzema's first-half brace propelled Real Madrid to a 5-0 thrashing of Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League on Wednesday, putting the holders one win from the last 16 after a third straight victory under Santiago Solari.

The Swedish journalist brought up the moment, "when you went out and celebrated, Juventus players were obviously very upset".

But Ronaldo, 33, insisted there was no reason for Juve to panic after suffering their first defeat in 15 games this season. We will prepare for the game. It´s better to have this type of stumble tonight.

It is hard for me to answer because I focus on my job, I focus on the four lines, focus on football, if you want to speak about their football potential we can speak and football potential starts with investment after that of course there is a quality of the work, of the organisation, I think that is untouchable but what is behind it I cannot say.

"It really just never gets old does it?"

Ronaldo faced United for the fourth time in the Champions League since departing Old Trafford and was on hand to open the scoring for Juventus in the 65th minute.

Earlier this week Mourinho learned that he could still face a domestic touchline ban following alleged misconduct after United's game against Newcastle in October.

Alexis Sánchez and Romelu Lukaku look set to be available.

But the hosts sprung into action on the half-hour with a low Juan Cuadrado cross taking a deflection off Nemanja Matic´s knee before David De Gea reacted superbly to keep the ball out.

"I was happy with the goal, but I'm a little bit disappointed because we should win the game with three or four goals".

Not to mention Alex Sandro brutally nutmegging Jesse Lingard. "And especially there is always a lot of negative comments about us but hopefully they might say something positive for once, because I think we deserve it, the team deserve it, the manager deserves it for getting this unbelievable result".

I don't see City winning either, though.
