Real Madrid ended a run of eight games without a win in Italy with a 2-0 victory at AS Roma and Cristiano Ronaldo and coach Zinedine Zidane shared a joyful embrace after he scored the opener.

A game that had been cagey in the first half opened up in the second, and Cristiano Ronaldo broke the deadlock in the 57th minute.

Both teams had a number of chances after that but it was Real who took advantage, with 22-year-old substitute Jese scoring his first Champions League goal four minutes from time.

Ronaldo's former captain at Manchester United, Roy Keane, delivered a quintessential 'Roy' response when asked to comment on Ronaldo running to his manager after his crucial goal and Zidane's future as the boss at the Bernebau.

Speaking on ITV's Champions league coverage, he said: ""Not too many players hugged me when I was a manager...

"The proof will be in the pudding, obviously it's always nice to see... When you score, you're going to celebrate.

"Ronaldo was probably thinking 'I wanna be in the team next week'," he added, tongue-in-cheek.

"It's very hard to predict who is going to be a top manager. He has to win trophies, he'll obviously be given more time than the previous manager because of his status at the club.

"He's had a decent start and he's working with real quality but you're up against a top team like Barcelona in the domestic league."
