UEFA Champions League night with two Spanish Football Clubs scheduled with Group qualifiers. Here is a brief summary of both teams, along with the goalscorers & final results.

Real Madrid Champions League

Real Madrid hosted Polish Club Legla of Warsaw & won 5 - 1. A good result with moments of ordinary & slack play by the Spaniards. The Real defence was stretched & stressed by the Poles during periods as the more offensive Real Madrid midfield ( Asensio / James Rodriguez) set up tonight tore the midfield in half to give Legla spaces. The mentioned midfielders are not accustomed to defending in block & at times left wide open Toni Kroos.

Coach Zidane "fixed" this mid 2º half with Lucas Vazquez & Morata coming on when Real Madrid was most suffering.

But Real Madrid has more stars & World Class players which were enough to defeat an enthusiastic but average Polish team. Legla created chances but did not finish with their only goal a penalty from a "silly" Danilo tackled.

Here are how the goals fell:

1-0 Bale (16')
2-0 Jodlowiec (o.g.)(19')
2-1 Radovic (21')
3-1 Asensio (37')
4-1 Lucas Vázquez (68')
5-1 Morata (84')

Cristiano Ronaldo had a terrible night ( relatively ) with goal, missing some clear chances. But tonight his big achievement were his assists - up to 3 - which at a collective level is excellent. 

Uefa Champions League Sevilla FC

Excellent win by Sevilla FC 0 - 1 away to Dynamo Zagreb. The Spaniards were superior to the Croatian team who looked good at the latter part of the encounter.

On loan player Nasri was the star tonight scoring the winner in the 31st min. The problematic player appears to be finding a "new opportunity" with Sevilla which is good news.

Vietto missed a clear opportunity for Sevilla for the 2º goal. Sevilla is close to securing next phase Champions League qualification.
