UEFA Champions League Champions League: Brahim stunner makes it advantage Real Madrid vs Leipzig

Real Madrid got the better of Leipzig at the RB Arena to put themselves in a strong position in their Champions League Round of 16 tie on Tuesday night.

The winner came just minutes into the second half, as Brahim produced a moment of inspiration to beat three defenders at pace and bend the ball beautifully past Gulacsi with a stroke of his left boot.

Madrid could have come away from Germany with an even greater advantage, but Vini Jr.’s 72nd-minute strike crashed back off the post. A place in the quarter-finals will be decided at the Santiago Bernabeu on March 6.

The game got underway at a blistering pace, with Real Madrid looking to control the ball and Leipzig pressing high and doing their best to capitalize on swift transitions.The approach paid off, as Sesko had the ball in the back of the net within two minutes, only to see his goal ruled out for offside against Henrichs.
