Alvaro Morata scored against his old team in the ninth minute, helping Juventus beat defending champion Real Madrid 2-1 Tuesday night in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal.

Acquired by Juventus last July after helping Madrid win a record 10th European title, didn't celebrate after scoring the opening goal.

Cristiano Ronaldo tied the score in the 27th minute with his record 76th Champions League goal, one more than Barcelona's Lionel Messi. Carlos Tevez, Ronaldo's former teammate on Manchester United, put the hosts back ahead in the 58th minute when he converted a penalty kick after he was fouled by Dani Carvajal.

The second leg of the total-goals series is in Madrid on May 13. Barcelona hosts Bayern Munich on Wednesday in the other semifinal.
