Cristiano Ronaldo admits to feeling 'tense' about Juventus start

In the first leg, Porto beat the Germans 3-1 and the team dreamed of going through to the semi-final but they had a nightmare at the Allianz Arena and conceded six goals.

Let's see if he can get anywhere close to the number of goals Ronaldo scored (450 in 438 appearances in all competitions), but there's no denying that Bale, and Real's other attackers will have a greater lease of life this season and there will be extra pressure on them to deliver.

Bale too has enjoyed a superb start to his season with three goals and three assists in five games, after establishing himself as a starter under new coach coach Julen Lopetegui.

"You certainly don't really think about looking stupid".

The Welshman has revealed that things are more relaxed now Ronaldo's has left the club and confessed that things are different.

"It was the first time that the commercial side and the sporting side of Juventus came together in assessing the costs and benefits [of a signing]", he said. "As soon as I hit it I knew it was good".

"I always try to put a bit of wobble on the ball", he said.

After losing in the European Super Cup to Atletico Madrid, his side have bounced back with a four match unbeaten run (W3 D1), winning both of their home games.

"I think that, contrary to what everybody else says, Madrid are more of a team without Cristiano, and now it's a little more hard than it was before - at least because of how I see football and my concept of this game". "In Spanish I can talk but maybe not go into that amount of detail with them that I would need to".

"I respect the opinion of the whole world".
