An incredibly feverish Real
The Spanish champions gave the stick to get beaten, with an extremely feverish and abused defense on each of the opposing offensives or almost. Raphaël Varane, who had already signed a disastrous performance last August against Manchester City, was still completely missed, and not only because of his goal against his camp (33rd, 0-2). Its responsibility is also engaged on the first Ukrainian achievement, signed Tété (29th), like that of Eder Militao and Marcelo.
3 – Real Madrid have conceded three first half goals in a Champions League match for the first time since September 2005 vs Lyon, while this is the first time it has happened at home in the competition since February 2000 vs Bayern Munich. Shocker. pic.twitter.com/B5gCvaaDGF

With two goals behind, we expected the Madrilenians to recover and try to revolt. However, the opposite effect has occurred since they continued to sink. In the 42nd minute, they conceded a third goal from Manor Salomon. The Israeli striker took advantage of a new passivity of Madrid’s central hinge to come and exploit a heel from Tete and fix Thibaut Courtois.

The second act of the match couldn’t be worse than the first for the Merengue. Touched in his pride, Real, who saw the entry into play of Karim Benzema, ended up waking up. The Spaniards even managed to come back to 2-3 before the hour mark thanks to goals from Luka Modric (54th) and Vinicius Jr (59th). Unfortunately for them, the third never came. The Shakhtar ended up giving up his offensive inclinations to preserve his prestigious victory. In the 91st, the visitors shivered when Valverde found the net with a long shot, but an offside position from Vinicius Jr, detected at VAR, came to relieve them. Luis Castro’s team did well in the feat of dominating the gang in Zidane. This is the first big sensation of the season in this C1.
