26.09.2017 » B. Dortmund 1-3 Real Madrid. It's a different ball game in Europe

Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo lead Real Madrid to a 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund

Second game in the Champions League and second win for Real Madrid. The Merengues visited the Signal Iduna Park to face Borussia Dortmund this Tuesday night and beat the German side 3-1 with a goal from Gareth Bale and a double from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Things would probably be better if we could play all 38 league games in the UEFA Champions League. Real Madrid looked far better than they have in recent games tonight, winning 3-1 away to Borussia Dortmund and recording their first win in the Westfalenstadion (now the Signal Iduna Park) in seven tries. It could have been even more, if not for some wasteful opportunities in front of goal, but Madrid will certainly be elated to get the victory away from home and will hope to build on this confidence in the coming weeks...

All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Borussia Dortmund:

Cristiano Ronaldo was, as usual, the star of the show, netting a double in his 400th game for Real Madrid. Gareth Bale was also on the scoresheet, having perhaps his best game since returning from injury. Bale's opening goal merely 18 minutes into the match was wonderful. A Dani Carvajal lofted pass fell to Bale and he hit a controlled volley into the top corner of the net, a brilliant finish really and Madrid were off.

The game was quite open and exciting really, as most encounters against BVB tend to be. Madrid seem to perform better when the match is an open affair as they have more space to operate. And this was evident in the first half as Madrid peeled away on counter attack after counter attack, putting the German side on their heels on multiple occasions.

Borussia Dortmund would have their chances too through Aubameyang and Yarmalenko, but they often faltered at the last moment with both Ramos and Varane doing a decent job of containment.

In the second half, Real Madrid would push forward for the kill. Ronaldo and Bale looked dangerous all night together and they would link up for the second goal of the match. A classic Bale-Ronaldo counter, with Cristiano finishing off with the left foot.

A lapse in concentration lead to a bit of a scare for Madrid, as Aubameyang popped up in front of Sergio Ramos to finish off a cross for 2-1. Shades of last season when Madrid squandered a late lead and ended up drawing 2-2 with Dortmund. This time, however, there would be no comeback as Madrid continued to capitalize on the space left behind by Dortmund. A classic Modric and Ronaldo connection would lead to the third, as Luka played Cristiano through down the right flank. With a defender and the keeper to beat, Ronaldo hit a rocket of a shot toward the near post and it smashed into the back of the net. 3-1, match complete. 

It was a fun night for Madrid fans, though the game was nerve-racking at times, but the team performed really well again under the bright lights of the UEFA Champions League. A special shoutout goes to Nacho, who deputized for Marcelo at left back in this game. Nacho was great in defense, even making a last minute tackle when needed in the box.

A great start to the group! Real Madrid will now face Tottenham next, in a top of the table clash in what should be a fantastic affair.
