Last night (UCL Final Match ), the champions of Europe lost to the underdogs. And it was not any spirited fighting that went till the last minute. It was the underdogs dominating the champions; from start to end, from the first leg to the second.
Real Madric had a very bad day on the field against CSKA Moscow. The Russian force were seen wrecking havoc through the whole of the Real Madrid supporter’s heart, especially the players.
This was their second loss in the group stage and surprisingly,it was the same opponents. After losing 2-0, Real Madrid were poised to make acomeback at their home turf. But it is easier said than done.
Lesser known faces of Feder Chalov and Georgi Schchennikovgave the visitors a 2-0 lead at the end of the first half and the home teamnever managed to make a comback. Iceland star Arnor Sigurdsson stabbed thefinal nail in the coffin to eliminate any hopes of redemption.
Real Madrid rather played a weak second side optingOdriozola and de Felipe in the defense. But a loss is a loss, and this losswould go down quite sour in the history books.
Despite their beautiful effort, CSKA Moscow finished bottom of the group behind Viktoria Plzen because of a disadvantaging goal difference.
In the other match far in Switzerland, Juventus also suffered defeat against Young Boys’. The debut team in UCL won 2-1 against Juventus earning reputation at a high level.
Cristiano Ronaldo had a rather off day, missing several chances and hitting the woodwork once. Young Boys’ had both their goals from the footwork of Hoarau; either side of the first half. One from the penalty spot and the other at half way mark. Dybala scored the consolation goal for the host.
One could say, it was the day of the underdogs.
