The opening goal appeared to shock Real Madrid into life, but Sporting were still carrying a threat and Casilla had to get down to keep out another Cesar strike in the 53rd minute as the enthralling game continued to entertain.
Who: Real Madrid vs.
A minute from time, the three-time world footballer of the year - who had previously looked off the pace - drew the eleven-time European champions level with a brilliant free-kick into the top corner.
On the other hand, Sporting also had an easy outing in the weekend, as goals from Gelson Martins, and new signings Joel Campbell, and Bas Dost fired the club to a 3-0 victory over Moreirense.
Fourteen years after scoring on hisSporting debut, Ronaldo bagged his 550th goal against his former charges. Ronaldo of course learned his professional trade with Sporting Lisbon before later moving to English side Manchester United.

Jordan Ferri, who honed his skills at Lyon's renowned academy with Tolisso, made it 2-0 four minutes into the second half from Cornet's assist.
Despite suffering defeat, the coach does not envisage anyone pushing the Champions League holders as hard as his side did.
"We started the game a little passively", Ronaldo told BeIN Sports after netting against the side where he started his career.
Lyon eased the pressure on coach Bruno Genesio with a comfortable 3-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb to open their Champions League campaign.
Leicester won in Belgium from Mark Albrighton and Riyad Mahrez' double; and Pep Guardiola's Manchester City trounced Borussia Moenchengladbach 4-0 with the help of a hat-trick from Sergio Aguero.
