The German team was strong initially as it blocked out Madrid in the midfield & were effective with their counter-attacks. From one of these counter-attacks came the first goal in the 12th min when EBERT put Berlin ahead. From here Real Madrid began putting together their moves & plays to begin dominanting procedures. Then in the 29th min CRISTIANO RONALDO scored a free-kick "missile" that flew pass the German goalie to equalize.
The balance shifted from here towards Real Madrid which practically controlled things with Hertha Berlin creating some minor opportunities. Real Madrid forward KARIM BENZEMA went on improving as time went on & was rewarded when he scored in the 33rd min. The Frenchman again scored at the start of the 2º half in the 47th min when Khedira, who had come on, gave a angled pass that Benzema managed to dodge the goalkeeper & score.
From here both teams made changes & kept the score line as Benzema last left it with his third goal, to keep entertaining the crowd who - along with everyone else - saw a good game of Football.
