GENEVA (AP) — Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic warmed up for their World Cup playoffs meeting with big games for Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Ronaldo had two goals in Madrid's 2-1 home victory over Juventus in the marquee matchup of the day, and Ibrahimovic scored four times — including an unstoppable long-range strike — to help PSG outclass Anderlecht 5-0 in Brussels.

Defending champion Bayern Munich routed Viktoria Plzen 5-0, and Bayer Leverkusen topped Shakhtar Donetsk 4-0.

Both Manchester clubs won: United edged Real Sociedad 1-0, and City won 2-1 at CSKA Moscow. In the latest case of racist abuse in European soccer, City's Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Toure was subjected to monkey noises by Russian fans.
