On the day Real Madrid was held by the Club Brugge at the Bernabeu, Cristiano Ronaldo continued to conquer the record when scoring to help Juventus win the match against Bayer Leverkusen. Juve’s 3-0 result against Leverkusen helped Ronaldo for the 102nd time to have a winning smile in his career at the Champions League, more than any other player.
Victory, which Ronaldo has so much to set a record, is something that Real Madrid struggled but could not have in the Champions League season 2019/20. Although playing at home against Club Brugge is much weaker, Real also struggled to have a draw.
Even Sergio Ramos’ 1-2 goal was also recorded as a courtesy of the referee for Real. The Spanish captain was completely offside in the equalizing situation, but even when using VAR, referee Georgi Kabakov determined that it was a goal for “Los Blancos”.
The controversial decision only accuses the problems that Real faces now. In La Liga, the decline of Barca or the instability of Atletico could make Real not fall out the mask while still at the top of the table.
But in the Champions League playground, where small teams like Club Brugge step to the Bernabeu to create surprises, Real’s weaknesses are completely exposed.
The ability to score goals is clearly a big problem for Real Madrid. They do not know how to concretize the advantages that they create before the opponent. When falling into this helpless situation, Real remember they have let the greatest striker in the history of the club and the Champions League arena gone?
In 9 years of serving Real Madrid, Ronaldo made 101 appearances in the Champions League, he opened fire in 66 games and scored 105 goals for “Los Blancos”. Real lost 8 of these matches and had an average of 2.42 points per game. How terrible is this number?
