Real Madrid suffers defeat again as Juventus grab victory without Cristiano Ronaldo over Young Boys

Real Madrid faces setback with scoring after the exit of Cristiano Ronaldo in the  team. But, Ronaldo new club, Juventus, performed well  without him on Tuesday Champions league clash against the Young Boys. For the first time, Real Madrid has gone three straight games without a goal after losing 1-0 at CSKA Moscow as result of poor defense in the Champions League.

Real Madrid are having some problems in the post-Ronaldo era, having won only two of its last six games in all competitions. They arrived at Luzhniki stadium where Spain lost to Russia in the last 16 of the World Cup, having also failed to score in its last two Spanish league games. Not since January 2007 has Real Madrid gone scoreless in three consecutive games.

Ronaldo, who moved to Juventus from Real Madrid in a contract worth 112 million euros, was absent in Juventus  champions league match against Young Boys after his sending-off against Valencia in the opening round of group play. Paulo Dybala stepped up in the Portuguese star's absence by scoring a hat trick in a 3-0 win to put Juventus top of its group.

Another of Ronaldo's former clubs is struggling too. Manchester United's bus got stuck in traffic leading to a delayed kickoff against Valencia and the team never got going on the field either in a dull 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.The stalemate comes after a week when United lost at home to second-tier opposition in an English League Cup game and to West Ham in the Premier League.

CSKA winning goal over Real Madrid came after 65 seconds, but it wasn't the quickest strike of the night. Hoffenheim scored even earlier  after 44 seconds, to be precise  against Manchester City, which fought back to win 2-1 and revive its Champions League challenge after opening with a loss.
