WOLFSBURG 2 REAL MADRID 0 | CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 1º LEG RESULT

German Club Wolfsburg gave the surprise result defeating Real Madrid 2 - 0 in the 1ºst leg of their Quarter-Final Champions League match. Real Madrid was brought back down to Earth after defeating FC Barcelona in Liga last Saturday. Nothing like that victorious side tonight against Wolfsburg which had their ideas very clear & were super effective with their chances.

Germany has never been historically a good territory for Real Madrid, but tonight the team may have also suffered from over-confidence. The Real Madrid defence was poor & right-back Danilo had another terror night as his flank was an open door. Much of the blame was German midfielder Drexler who put in an excellent match being a constant danger & creating scoring chances for his team.

Very few Real Madrid players stood out, except Garath Bale who was outstanding trying hard & being dangerous. The Spaniards will claim the German penalty was not,  a Cristiano Ronaldo goal looked legal & that a possible penalty was executed on Bale which was not called. The fact is they were cleverly outplayed by Wolfsburg which now sits comfortably with a 2 goal advantage, while Real Madrid faces the real possibility of being eliminated. 

Real Madrid must score 3 goals in the return match & without the Germans scoring any goals. A feat at this moment against the odds as the Spanish looked mediocre tonight. Added to this,  Karim Benzema went off injured.

Goals tonight:
  • Rodriguez 17th min (penalty) 1 - 0
  • Arnold 24th min 2 - 0
