Cristiano Ronaldo ended his away scoring drought with an impressive second-half goal as Real Madrid won 2-0 at Roma on Wednesday in the first leg of the Round of 16 in the Champions League.

The victory also marked a successful debut for Zinedine Zidane as Madrid's manager in the elite competition.

Shortly before the hour mark, Ronaldo collected a pass up the left flank from Marcelo, rapidly cut inside and launched a powerful shot that deflected off Roma fullback Alessandro Florenzi.

Substitute Jese sealed the victory with an angled shot four minutes from the end after Roma failed to take advantage of several opportunities for an equalizer.

It was Ronaldo's first goal on the road since Nov. 29, when he scored a penalty against Eibar.
