Real Madrid fans, rejoice.
In a match which ended in a draw, the hosts made it 2-0 and ended the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals in the final position.
But in the second leg, Real Madrid had to face a Real Zaragonese side who finished the campaign with three straight wins, while the Zaragones were in need of a win over Real Madrid.
The first half saw a Real Madrid side which lacked any semblance of the defensive solidity that saw them score eight goals in their opening three matches.
They were particularly lacking in numbers as they were out-muscled by Real Madrid’s two full-backs, and a second half which saw the hosts dominate possession was also lacking in creativity, as Real Madrid were unable to break down their defensive system.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, were more effective on the ball, and the former Barcelona forward and the latter Valencia midfielder were more accurate in the first half, but lacked the pace of the former in the latter stages.
A few key moments from the second half, such as when Zidane’s cross found Ronaldo for a goal-bound finish, and Zidanes own header, were also crucial.
The result means Real Madrid are now three points behind Barcelona, who have not lost in the group stage of the competition since 2011.
This was also their best result in Europe in 2014/15, with Real Madrid winning the Europa League in the process.
In the second-leg, Real Zaragas players were the best at their best, and were also responsible for a couple of key goals.
The Real Madrid forward’s header gave the hosts a 3-2 lead in the opening minutes of the second round, and Cristiano Ronaldo also hit a couple from distance as Madrid secured a 4-1 win.
Real Zarabo had to fight hard in the third-round, as they failed to break through for a fourth-round tie, but did eventually find a way past the hosts in the end.
They’re now three and a half points behind Juventus, who will be facing Real Madrid in the quarter-final stage.
