Perfect match for Real Madrid on a difficult date in Moldova against the Sheriff. The whites were facing a team that already gave them a scare at the Bernábeu, in a stadium that was vibrating with the opportunity to make history, but before this the whites were not downcast and showed why they are the kings of Europe.
Those of the Sheriff did not give up the attack through their fast extremes, but they did not manage to beat a Real Madrid that made their superiority notice in every way. Little by little the Whites took over the tempo of the game, thanks in part to the sobriety of Kroos, who took over the midfield. With this superiority, Madrid began to besiege the rival goal and went ahead through a foul by Alaba that bounced into the net.
Vinicius and Rodrygo showed a great Brazilian connection in the first half with combinations, suggesting that they are two players who complete each other very well. On a play to the left, the two young men made a great play that ended up firing a beautiful shot inside Kroos that bounced off the crossbar and ended up inside, just before half-time.
With 0-2 in the second half, the Sheriff did not give up and made some dangerous arrivals that between the defense and Courtois they were able to stop. Even so, Real Madrid would sentence the game with a magnificent play by Benzema that would place the result with an already insurmountable advantage for those from Transnistria.
With this result, Real Madrid is the leader of its group with 12 points and certifies its pass to the eighth of the Champions League, but it must confirm first place against Inter on the last day. The Italians also won, so the whites will have to draw or beat Inter to be leaders and avoid a complicated confrontation too soon.
