On the eve of the last round, there was uncertainty about which position Real Madrid will enter the knockout phase of the Champions League, as well as who would be the second traveler from Group F – Leipzig or Shakhtar?
In the end, there was not even a hint of uncertainty on the field, as both Real and Leipzig achieved their goals and simply crushed Celtic and Shakhtar!
Let’s start with the match in Madrid in which Real sent a powerful message to all rivals with a 5:1 victory over Celtic!
Only three points played for Real tonight for first place in the group, while in case of any other outcome they would be in second place.
And Carlo Ancelotti’s players made an effort to resolve all dilemmas as soon as possible. Already before halftime, everything was over in an actual penalty shootout.
First, Luka Modric put Real in the lead from the penalty spot in the sixth minute, and Rodrigo doubled the information from the penalty spot in the 21st minute.
Maybe a different story would be told tonight if Juranovic scored a goal from 11 meters in the 35th minute, but he missed the best possible opportunity.
Maybe a different story would be told tonight if Juranović scored a goal from 11 meters in the 35th minute, but he missed the best possible opportunity.
