Following their 1-0 loss to CSKA Moscow on Tuesday, Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas admitted the La Liga giants are missing Cristiano Ronaldo.

The second matchday of the UEFA Champions League group stage saw champions Real Madrid lose, Bayern Munich and Manchester United were held in disappointing displays while Juventus continued their ideal start to the season.

Nikola Vlasic's second-minute goal was enough for CSKA, who moved onto four points and top of Group G.

The Spanish team who have won the UCL for the past three seasons petered the Russian capital club's goal.

"You can not cover the sun with a finger...he scored a lot of goals while he was at the club, but it is already in the past and we can not live in the past".

"Obviously, I want to play....(but) being left out has made me work harder and concentrate more".

Navas said: "We are sad because they had one chance and took it".


"We need to create chances, I'm sure that sooner or later we will start scoring", he added when asked about their recent struggles in front of goal.

Dybala hit the inside of the post after the restart and although Young Boys then enjoyed another good spell, they were caught out again in the 69th minute.

"We should have scored more tonight", he said.

"No doubt, we'll get back to winning ways".

"You have to ask the coach about that".

"They can score at any moment and, until the final moments of the game, it is very tough to believe you can beat a club like Real Madrid".

But, at the same time, Goncharenko was apprehensive over a possible ban for Akinfeev following his red card.
