The first of the Nigerian’s goals came from a miscontrolled Percy Tau’s cross in the box which caught Thibaut Courtois wrongfooted and bounced into the net. Initially the goal was disallowed but later stood after a lengthy VAR check.


For the second Dennis stumbled into the box and despite almost loosing his footing still managed to chip Courtois a rather embarrassing goal for a goalkeeper of his statue. The Galacticos number one would later make way for Alphonse Areola at half time as he obviously was having a bad night.


Real Madrid captain, Segio Ramos put one back for the home side again it was initially ruled as an offside but a VAR check overruled and the goal stood to make it 1-2.

Caseimero headed home from a Toni Kroos cross resulting from a free kick that saw Club Bruge captain Ruud Vormer get a second yellow card of the game for his matching orders.

After the loss in the first match, a draw today means Real Madrid stay bottom of group A.
