A ridiculous Champions League campaign got off to a fitting start in Madrid.

Sadio Mane's attempt at a cross was adjudged to have been handled by Moussa Sissoko by referee Damir Skomina, who pointed to the spot.

There was a substantial wait as the video assistant referee checked the decision, but Salah kept his nerve and buried the spot-kick.
