Gareth Bale’s stunning Volley and two brilliant strikes from Ronaldo were enough to see off Dortmond as Madrid claimed an emphatic victory for the first time at the Signal Iduna park, maintaining their perfect start in the champions league this season, staying top of group H.
It took Madrid just 18 minutes to break the deadlock as Bale volleyed home a cross from Dani cavarjal. Ronaldo, making his 150th appearance in the competition was on hand to double the lead just after the break, beating his man to convert a cross from Bale inside the six yard box.
Dortmond replied almost immediately, Aubameyang scoring to hand the home team a lifeline. But it’d be the competition’s all time top scorer who would have the final say with a beautiful strike after being sent through on goal by Luka Modric.
Man Of The Match Performance From Bale
Man of the match contender Bale would leave the pitch in the 79th minute with what looked like a minor ankle injury and was replaced by Lucas vasquez.
Dortmond threatened to get back into the game, which would see Phillip’s shot blocked by the arm of Ramos,and penalty appeals waved away by the referee.
Despite coming into the game with a run of poor form in la liga, Real were able to defeat a side unbeaten in the bundesliga this season, on a ground they have never won in the last 6 attempts.
