Real Madrid fight back to draw Bruges

Sergio Ramos and Casemiro believed to rescue Real Madrid since the 13-times winners scrambled their way back from 2 goals down to prevent a hugely embarrassing defeat to Club Bruges and draw 2-2 from the Champions League on Tuesday.

Actual, who have been beaten 3-0 in Paris St Germain fourteen days past, are joint-bottom of Group A with a single-stage after two matches, while Bruges have 2. Galatasaray, on a single stage, have been in action at home to leaders PSG after on Tuesday.

Bonaventure struck with the other scrappy goal in the 39th minute, aided with a calamitous giveaway in midfield by 2018 Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric.

The forwards lost his bottom as he bore down Courtois but produced a stunning end to lift the ball into the internet. The goal was originally ruled offside, then given following a VAR review.

Facing his embarrassing European defeat with the team, Real’s triple Champions League-winning trainer Zinedine Zidane made a double shift at halftime, bringing on goalkeeper Alphonse Areola to get Courtois and introducing abandoning back Marcelo for Nacho.

Real came back out after the period with actual intent but were nearly penalized a third time around the counterattack when Bonaventure hurried down the left wing but had been thwarted by Areola.

Bruges’ nerves started to install and Eden Hazard, Modric, and Lucas Vazquez missed the goal for Actual while seeing priest Ruud Vormer was sent off for picking up two yellow cards in the space of six minutes.

Casemiro finally leveled for Real in the 85th minute with a header from a free-kick awarded for Vormer’s next filthy, whaile both sides missed opportunities to locate a winner in the final stages of a playoff match.

“This was not the outcome we wanted, especially playing at home,” Casemiro told me.

“They’d barely any shots at goal and they scored two times, but that is how hard it’s to perform in the Champions League. Though we did lots of stuff wrong, the fantastic thing is we responded well.”
