In the other Group H game, Harry Kane had a hat-trick in a 3-0 shutout for Spurs at APOEL.

Max Philipp has emerged as goalscoring threat, with four goals in his last three games, alleviating some of the pressure on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has scored an astonishing 12 goals in nine games. They read the game really well.

The Germans quickly pulled a goal back with Aubameyang stabbing in a Gonzalo Castro cross to keep the game tight, until Ronaldo broke clear and fired in their third goal 11 minutes from time.

Midfielder Julian Weigl also made his first start after a recovering from a fractured ankle and impressed with penetrative passes and a sumptuous half-volley to make it 6-1.

Not having Shikhar Dhawan for the three ODIs is a blow as the southpaw has been among runs in all formats lately. Pandya fancied Zampa immediately, winding up to each of the three deliveries he faced from him first up.

Defence is the worst hit area, with Raphael Guerreiro, Marcel Schmelzer (both ankle) and Erik Durm (hip) sidelined.

Dani Carvajal shot wide on 10 minutes before Ronaldo's low cross on the break missed Bale by a whisker. However, injuries have also been a problem for Madrid.

Real are already without injured Marcelo, Karim Benzema and Mateo Kovacic but Kroos is back in the squad after sitting out their 2-1 weekend win over Alaves in La Liga due to a rib injury. It's just three more points, but it's a win at a ground where we'd never managed to claim victory before and that now gives us six points in the Champions League.

It was a flawless start in this season's competition for the pair, with a clean sheet apiece and a combined eight goals scored.
