Borussia Dortmund 1-3 Real Madrid: Ronaldo's fantastic two-goal performance lifts reigning champs

Real Madrid is rolling in the Champions League. Los Blancos have left their domestic league issues behind, earning a powerful 3-1 win at Borussia Dortmund in the group stage on Wednesday to make it six points from six. A sick opener from Gareth Bale was followed up by two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, as Dortmund failed to produce in the final third and was on the wrong end of a no-call by the official.

After Bale made it 1-0 18 minutes in with his brilliant hit, Ronaldo scored in the 49th and 79th, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's goal on 54 minutes changed little. 

Here's his first goal:

And he went near post for the second:

It was a nightmare for Dortmund, who now find themselves with zero points from two matches, six points behind for Real and Tottenham. American Christian Pulisic came on in the second half but had few opportunities to make an impact, as BVB's UCL campaign is in critical condition.
