Cristiano Ronaldo was supposed to be the missing piece in Juventus' bid to win the Champions League. There had been no sense of a panic for a team that won its opening three games without Ronaldo scoring, yet a quiet sense of insecurity did linger.
But ahead of their Champions League opener against last season's semi-finalists Roma on Wednesday, Bale insists Real can be even better this season.
Substitute Marco Asensio nearly added a late third with a delightful no-look finish, but Mariano did wrap up the scoring in the first minute of added time with a fantastic turn and strike into the top-right corner on his first appearance since returning from Lyon. Its next Champions League match is at home against Young Boys, which Massimiliano Allegri's squad should have no trouble handling in Turin.
"It makes me feel proud, responsible and very excited about a competition that I don't need to explain what it means to us and what Real Madrid means to the Champions League", Lopetegui said.
They will also miss their superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 120 goals for the Spanish club in the tournament. But Wojciech Szczesny parried Parejo's spot kick, which was awarded after Daniele Rugani was adjudged to have elbowed Gabriel Paulista.
This is a huge blow for Juventus as he may miss half of the games in the group stages of the competition, one that the Old Lady would have been hoping Ronaldo could have delivered for them this season.
