CHAMPIONS LEAGUE | REAL MADRID | SEVILLA FC | RESULTS

UEFA Champions League continued tonight with Real Madrid & Sevilla FC in Group matches. Here is a brief summary of events, goalscorers & final results.

Champions League 2017

REAL MADRID was already through to the next stage of the competition, while BORUSSIA DORTMUND already "out" wanted to pull from pride & give an good image. In the end the Germans left with an excellent impression nearly surprising the locals in the result. Although Real Madrid won Borussia Dortmund 3 - 2 the Germans had chances to draw in the end. 

Good match with Real Madrid resting Marcelo, Modric, Kross & Benzema, while Borussia grew from a bad start as the match went on. Real Madrid was 2 - 0 up by the 12th min, but Dortmund had already equalized by the 48th min. Real Madrid managed to shake off the Germans who were persistent when Lucas Vazquez scored the winner late in the match. 

Observations, Cristiano Ronaldo scored making him the only player in Champions to score a goal in each of the Group games, while on the negative side Varane injuried himself. 

Goalscorers:
  • Borja Mayoral 8th min, 1 - 0
  • Cristiano Ronaldo 12th min, 2 - 0
  • Aubameyang 43rd min , 2 - 1
  • Aubameyang 48th min, 2 - 2
  • Lucas Vazquez 81st min, 3 - 2
Germans were very close to equalizing & demonstrated that their a good team which will be competitive in the Europa League competition.  

Champions

SEVILLA FC travelled to MARIBOR looking for a win or a draw. They managed a 1 - 1 draw result which gives the Spanish Club the second spot in their Group & the ticket onto the next phase of Champions League. 

Cold start for the Spaniards which began lifting their play in the second half. Perhaps the nerves or the solid local tactical set up was the cause. Sevilla FC managed to turn around the scoreline & grabbed the needed point.

Goalscorers:
  • Tavares 10th min, 1 - 0
  • Ganso 75th min, 1 - 1
