Cristiano Ronaldo scored a sublime goal for Real Madrid against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday to open up the scoring at Anfield.
Ronaldo netted the goal in the 23rd minute at Anfield to score his first-ever goal at the stadium. With Liverpool looking more threatening in the first 20 minutes, Real Madrid's goal was against the run of play, but who other than Cristiano Ronaldo would score the goal to open up the scoring?
Remember the 1-3 loss to Manchester City? That, but worse, because the defending on the second and third goals was vastly worse, and Real Madrid are even better than Manchester City, and Liverpool were at home, and there was no own goal late consolation.
Up until the 88th minute of the game between Anderlecht and Arsenal, Anderlecht was leading 1-0 and were on the verge of a shock result, but the Gunners fought back with two late goals to achieve an unlikely victory.
Kieran Gibbs scored in the 89th minute after a inch-perfect cross by Calum Chambers.
