Real Madrid wanted two late goals to beat Leipzig as boss Carlo Ancelotti grew to become the second manager to win 100 Champions League games.
Leipzig missed a host of excellent possibilities with Christopher Nkunku denied by Thibaut Courtois twice.
Federico Valverde gave Real an Eightieth-minute lead from Vinicius Jr’s move.
And Marco Asensio scored a wonderful first-time end from the edge of the field from Toni Kroos’ free-kick to seal the win for the European champions.
This is the primary time they’ve received their opening two Champions League games since 2017-18.
Only Manchester United legend Alex Ferguson (102) has received extra games within the match than Real boss Ancelotti.
