Real embarrassed by Russian guests with heaviest home loss ever


Real Madrid suffered their biggest home defeat in European competition as CSKA Moscow defeated the reigning UCL holders 3-0 at the Bernabeu with the goals coming from Fedor Chalov, Georgy Schennikov and Arnor Sigurdsson.

The Russian visitors still bow out of the competition in 4th place whilst being the first team since Juventus in 2008/09 to have done the double over European giants whilst it’s Real’s first home defeat in nine years.

2nd placed Roma also fell to a shock 2-1 defeat at Viktoria Plzen however this made no difference given they had already qualified for the last 16.

Both Maximillian Wober and Thomas Muller saw red as Ajax drew 3-3 with Bayern Munich in Group E as both teams played out a game with no importance whilst Benfica saw off AEK Athens 1-0 in a similar game of no importance.

Shakhtar Donetsk drew 1-1 with Lyon to finish Group F in 3rd place which secured a Europa League last 32 spot whilst Juventus lost 2-1 at Young Boys in Group H.
