REUTERS - Cristiano Ronaldo scored and set up another goal for Mesut Ozil less than a minute later as Real Madrid beat AC Milan 2-0 to seize control of Champions League Group G on Tuesday.
Jose Mourinho's young Real side, playing with energy and pace, dominated an ageing Milan team and the La Liga giants cemented their place at the top of the group with three wins in three matches.
After a fast-paced opening 10 minutes with few clear chances, Ronaldo struck in the 13th minute with a fierce freekick that flew through the Milan wall.
Within the visitors reeling, he then sprinted in from the left wing to feed Ozil on the edge of the penalty area and the German international's first-time shot balooned up off the back of central defender Daniele Bonera and into the net.
