Real, still got firepower though… so dynamic and quick. Good chance for Juve in the 82′ … sooooo close
Pace of this game is really grinding down now…
Real gets 2 quick goals about 60 mins in, and it’s game over. Must be those Orlando City unis they’re wearing
Two rapid-fire goals from Real Madrid to push the score to 3-1. Casemiro’s shot deflects in to make it 2-1 before Ronaldo scores again to extend Real Madrid’s lead. Going to be tough for Juve to come back now, especially with Real Madrid’s counter attack lurking,
HALFTIME: 1-1 at the half as Mandzukic’s goalazo cancels out a Ronaldo opener. Match has lived up to the hype so far. Physical, but been a very fun matchup through 45.
GOAL MANDZUKIC! OH MY GOODNESS! Bicycle kick loops up and over Navas. Goal of the year candidate and it’s 1-1
GOAL RONALDO! Juve with the better of the play but Real gets the first goal. Ball in from Carvajal and Ronaldo smashes it first time. 1-0 Real
Some early chances for Juve. Pjanic with the best look but Navas keeps it out.
Kickoff and we’re underway.
Hey all. Match about to start in Cardiff. Should be a fun one. Any pregame predictions?
