It looked like Real Madrid was going to win it easily when Cristiano Ronaldo scored an opening goal at the 6th minute of the match against Lyon.
Later on, Higuain got the chance to double Real Madrid’s lead but unfortunately, his shot hit the goal pole. He then failed to get his name on the score sheet at another goal attempt just a couple of minutes later.
At half time, Real Madrid led 1-0 only.
In the econd half, Lyon coach Claude Puel made another strategy by changing the players, and put Kim Kallstrom and Maxime Gonalons on the field… and it worked.
Lyon played more effectively and dangerously, while Real Madrid’s players lost their tempo and confidence as they missed a number of scoring opportunities.
The dream team had to bury their hopes when Miralem Pjanic finally scored on the 75 minutes. It was suddenly all square, leaving Real Madrid obliged to net two more goals in the last 15 minutes.
But clearly, it was impossible for Los Blancos to do that. As the time went by with no further goals to be reported, it meant that Real Madrid had to gave up their ambition of winning the Champions League.
