Real Madrid showed their power in a very tough stadium and they were able to win (1-3) for the first time in their history at Dortmund. Bale and Cristiano lead the team to get an important victory away in the Champions League. The champions delivered an important message: they want the third title in a row.
Toni Kroos finally started the game and Zidane put Cristiano and Bale in the front, as it was expected. The game started very vivid, but the first chance was for Real Madrid. Carvajal broke the defense but he shot on target instead of trying to assist. Borussia Dortmund reacted very quickly but Sergio Ramos saved the goal with a handball on the line and Aubameyang couldn’t score.
The first goal arrived in the 18th minute. Carvajal crossed and found Bale, who scored the first goal with a great volley. After this great goal, Real Madrid tried to control the game and there weren’t any clear chances until the half time. Los Blancos took the control and the game was on their side. It could be even better but Sergio Ramos missed a clear header in the injury time.
The second half couldn’t start better. Gareth Bale put a perfect cross from the left wing and Cristiano Ronaldo tapped in. He’s always there when the team needs him. The joy didn’t last a lot of time because Aubameyang shorten the gap only four minutes later. The game was completely broken, so any team could score and both arrived with danger to the rival box.
After that, Real Madrid took control and they have several chances to close the game. For instance, Isco missed an important chance after a great assist from Ramos. Los Blancos wanted to wrap up the game and Cristiano Ronaldo did it in the 80th minute with a header. Real Madrid were doing better and, this time, they scored their chances. This could be a turning point in the season, because Los Blancos showed their power in a very difficult venue. They will defend their crown with honour.
