Real Madrid Lost against Galatasaray yesterday 3-2 but they still passed to the semifinals with a global score of (5-3).
The Spanish team started the Match with a goal from #7 Cristiano Ronaldo in minute 7. That score put Real Madrid up 4-0 in the global scoring and put Galatasaray in position where they had to score at least 5 goals to pass to the semifinals, so Madrid fell asleep in the second half, they lowered the intensity, and the level of play and got to spend the rest of the match real badly.
Eboué (57 ‘), Sneijder (71’) and Drogba (72 ‘) turned the score in the blink of an eye, with three great goals that unleashed the madness in the stadium of Istanbul and showed doubt and nervousness in the team led by Jose Mourinho.
In the last 20 minutes the Madrid pressed a little more in the middle and was able to hold the result. until the 92 ‘Cristiano Ronaldo again showed up on the scoreboard leaving the final score 3-2. CR7 reached 11 in the Champions League, being the the man with most goals scored of the competition.
Even more beyond of the defeat the bad news for Madrid was the injury of Michael Essien and the expulsion of Álvaro Arbeloa, who will definitely miss the first part of the semifinals for suspension. Real Madrid will meet his rival in the semis in the raffle that La Vefa will perform on Friday 12 April.
I asked people what they thought will be in the finals most of them said that Real Madrid will most probably be on the finals but I Remind them that there are still teams who are playing good like Bayern Munich who eliminated Real Madrid last year in penalties, and Dortmund who lately has been playing good soccer and they might demonstrate that they have what it takes to be in the final.
