But the Biaconeri had the breakthrough moments before half time as Daniel Parejo fouled Joao Cancelo in the box and Miralem Pjanic opened the scoring from the spot to make it 1-0.
Six minutes after the restart Murillo who responsible for Ronaldo's sending off was adjudged to have brought down Leonardo Bonucci in the box for another penalty as Pjanic scored again to make it 2-0.

Parejo missed a consolation penalty in the 90th minute as Wojciech Szczesny went the right way and got a hand to it.
Meanwhile, in the other Group H match, Manchester United coasted to a 3-0 victory over Swiss side Young Boys.
