Champions League: Real Madrid In Disappointing Draw vs Club Brugge

Spanish La Liga leaders Real Madrid continued their poor form in the Champions League despite coming from two goals down to secure a draw at home to Belgian top flight team Club Brugge.

In the Group A clash in the Champions League, Real Madrid were able to recover from a 2-0 deficit at the halftime interval to secure a 2-2 draw.

Real Madrid were expected to beat their Belgian opposition convincingly but that was not the situation during the game which saw Club Brugge punch above their weight at the Estadio Santiago Bernebeu.

The Los Merengues had lost their last two games in the Champions League either side of the summer and were close to losing a third game if not for the spirited fightback from them in the second half.

Nigerian striker Emmanuel Bonaventura Dennis was the hero for Club Brugge after he scored two goals in the first half to put his team in a fantastic position.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane made a statement change at the halftime interval by removing first choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois for French shot stopper Alphonse Areola and that sparked the fightback from his team as Sergio Ramos and Casemiro scored in the second half to earn a point for the hosts against a Club Brugge team which had Ruud Vormer sent off with five minutes left on the clock.
