Returning home match of Cristiano Ronaldo. In the Lisbon field this Portugal star got reception like a king. But Portugal spotting club’s boys has not spoken up a little.
After intense fighting, Karim Benzema scored in 87 minutes and Zinedine Zidane’s disciples have confirmed the victory of 2-1 goal. The 20th time they placed top sixteen in the Champions league. In this match Real Madrid’s regret is the injury of Gareth Bell.
As if Real Madrid got the victory in exchange of Bell’s injury. Benzema sat on dugout. In the middle time of the match Bell leaves field for injured and Benzema entered in the field. At the end the French striker becomes the savior for the real Madrid. Now Bell’s injury is a big fact against Barcelona.
Ronaldo came Lisbon to standing at a distance to reach the 100 goals landmark! Only 2 goals, then he will achieve the goal century. His fans and supporters may pray for him to make the history in his native field Lisbon. But it did not. He cannot score any goal, but contributed himself in the first goal.
In the match of Estádio José Alvalade, Real Madrid got forward with scored 1-0 at the time of 29 minutes. Beside Ronaldo, Rafael Varona scored the goal. Real had substitute Karim Benzema to thank for all three points as he came off the bench to down Sporting’s 10 men with a fine finish from Sergio Ramos’s cross. Raphael Varane had fired Real into a first-half lead, but Sporting captain Adrien Silva levelled from the penalty spot after Joao Pereira had seen a straight red card.
When we think that 1-1 would be the consequences of the match, of that time Karim Benzema becomes the hero. Sergio Ramos made a cross to the opposite’s post at the 87th minutes. From that cross Benzema earned the victory. “It was important that we won here,”
Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. He feels better that Real Madrid’s players have been fighting for the last time, ‘I feel better that from the beginning to the end we are fighting here”.
We do not leave our room. Many people thought that, if the opposite made a goal that time it is impossible to turn back in the match. But we had played and tried. And after all we achieved the goal. I am very much happy for our team as well as Benzama.
