Real Madrid Wallop Legia Warszawa 5 – 1 In UCL Clash

Real Madrid have beaten Polish side, Legia Warszawa 5 – 1 in a group match of the UEFA Champions League (UCL).

Moments after Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe had struck the post for the visitors, Bale cut inside and found the bottom corner.

A Marcelo shot saw Tomasz Jodlowiec deflect in for an own goal but Miroslav Radovic pulled one back from the spot.

Marco Asensio smartly side-footed in from 18 yards, and after the break substitutes Lucas Vazquez and Alvaro Morata completed the scoring.

Cristiano Ronaldo was on target as Zinedine Zidane’s side won 6-1 at Real Betis on Saturday but he remains stuck on 98 goals in Europe despite having nine shots at the Bernabeu, finding the target twice.

Ahead of kick-off in Madrid, three Polish fans were arrested for incidents in the city. The reverse fixture on 2 November will be played behind closed doors after Legia were punished for racist behaviour in their 6-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund.

Zidane admitted he hoped to improve upon the number of chances his side gave the Polish champions and Danilo’s needless foul on Radovic for the penalty perhaps summed up some of Real’s slack defensive work.

But Los Blancos are now unbeaten in 24 competitive outings and move second in Group F, level on seven points with leaders Borussia Dortmund, who won 2-1 at Sporting Lisbon.
