UCL: How first timers, Sheriff Tiraspol defeated 13-time champions Real Madrid

Tuesday night in the Uefa Champions League was one of the most shocking, especially as first-timers Sheriff Tiraspol defeated 13 times champions Real Madrid right at their home stadium in Spain.

Sheriff Tiraspol, who were playing in the UCL competition for the first time, defeated the Los Blancos in a 2-1 scoreline.

Sebastien Till’s late volley made it two wins out of two for the Moldovan side, who are now topping the Group D.

Jasur Jakhshibaev had scored the first goal before Karim Benzema’s penalty drew the game level at the Santiago Bernabeu, but it was not enough to save Real Madrid in what has been termed a shameful defeat.

Since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane from Real Madrid, they have not been all that impressive as they now bask in their old glory.

For those who may not know, Sheriff Tiraspol is a Moldovan football club based in Tiraspol, a city located in the unrecognised breakaway state of Transnistria.
