By Omolagba Oluwayemi

Juventus got their revenge against Barcelona on Tuesday night with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring twice from penalty kicks in a convincing 3-0 victory that sees the Italian club topping Champions League Group G, reports.

American Weston McKennie got his first Uefa Champions League goal for the club, finishing an astonishing mid-air volley and sending Barcelona into second place ahead of the round of 16 draw.

Barca needed to avoid a big defeat to win the group but instead, their defensive woes took the center stage.

Juventus got the first from a penalty kick just 13 minutes in before McKennie scored in the 20th minute with the best goal of his young career. Ronaldo added another penalty in the second half to complete the dominant scoreline.

The last time Barcelona lost at home in the Champions League was in 2013, against Bayern (0-3)
