Real Madrid flees from Al Jazira trap

Tens of thousands of fans descended on Zayed Sports City stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday evening for what was billed as the biggest match in UAE club football history.

Having fallen behind to a shock goal against Al Jazira in their Club World Cup semi-final, Real Madrid were toiling to get back into it.

The Spanish side dominated the game but, not for the first time this season, showed remarkable profligacy in front of goal until Cristiano Ronaldo equalized in the second half and Gareth Bale hit a late victor 30 seconds after coming off the bench.


A better advert for VAR came when a second "goal" for Al Jazira was disallowed for offside.

Cristiano Ronaldo said it would be great if Real Madrid C.F.'s "BBC" reunited, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor eyeing a reunion with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.

"It will be a complicated game because there's no such thing as an easy game, as we proved against Al Jazira". Words can not express how happy we are as fans to see our team play Real Madrid. "We are never complacent and you can never take your foot off the pedal with sport - we have to sustain the momentum".


Until then Madrid had lacked the same killer instinct as last season with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema scoring a combined total of just six times in La Liga, while Gareth Bale has made just one brief appearance as a substitute since September.

Given that he scored, Real Madrid won and he became the all-time top scorer in FIFA Club World Cup tournaments, it's probably fair to say that the joke was not on him.
