2. Madrid’s back four struggled
Post their hard fought win against Barcelona, you’d have expected Zidane’s men to put in an intimidating performance. Instead it was the hosts who made Los Blancos look ordinary on numerous occasions.
Draxler and Bruno Henrique in particular looked dangerous all night long. The latter was handed his first start for Wolfsburg and he couldn’t have asked for a better night to deliver. Flooding numbers in attack, Real’s back four were exposed to one on one situations far too many times.
The home side had virtually no trouble in getting the better of Madrid’s full backs in the first half. Having conceded just three goals until tonight, the visitors had the joint best defensive record in the tournament.
But tonight they were thoroughly opened up with ease and intent by the men in white. Twenty five-year-old, Bruno Henrique was a live wire down the right wing and regularly drove in menacing crosses.Published 07 Apr 2016, 09:33 IST
