Real Madrid 2 – Milan 4 match report: First loss in three months for Los Blancos


Real Madrid lost their first game since September 14th and ended a run of 22 consecutive victories as they were defeated by AC Milan in a Dubai friendly.

The goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema were not enough to beat a solid Milan, lead by Stephan El Shaarawy, who scored a brace.

Los Blancos lack of intensity and poor defending was the key of the game. Carlo Ancelotti men conceded four goals very easily and never had a chance of coming back.

French midfielder Jeremy Menez made it 1-0 for Milan before the half-hour mark thanks to a mistake from defender Nacho. The Spaniard tried to pass the ball to Keylor Navas, but Menez stole the ball and sent it to the back of the net.

El Shaarawy doubled the Italians lead with a superb shot from outside the box into the bottom corner. Yet Cristiano Ronaldo scored four minutes later to bring Los Merengues back in contention before half-time.

The European reigning champions were more dangerous in the second half, but they continued making mistakes in defence, and Milan sealed the victory with two more goals.

El Shaarawy made his second with some help from Iker Casillas, and Giampaolo Pazzini netted the fourth heading home a cross that Alvaro Arbeloa failed to clear.

Nacho was fouled inside the box with five minutes to go, and Benzema cooly converted the penalty, but it was too late to even think of a comeback.

Real ended a glorious 2014 with a defeat, but at least it was in a friendly game. Los Blancos will return to official competition on Sunday as they will pay a visit to Valencia in La Liga.
