Matchday 2 of Champions League 2021/22 group stage came with a huge surprise as Real Madrid lost 1-2 with the modest Sheriff at the Santiago Bernabeu. Jasurbek Yakshiboev and Sebastien Thill were the goalscorers for the visitors, while Karim Benzema made the goal for the hosts from the penalty spot.
It’s a huge blow for Los Merengues, who were favorites to get their second win in the tournament, after they defeated Inter Milan in Matchday 1. Also, Sheriff, who on paper was the weakest side of the group, is now the leader of Group D with six points and two wins.
Despite the result, Real Madrid got nine shots on target but the goalkeeper Athanasiadis was the star of the encounter thanks to his incredible saves. Now, Carlo Ancelotti’s team has to recover from this unexpected defeat in its signature tournament.
