Real Madrid had visited Borussia Dortmund six times in the past. They had never won, managing three draws, and losing three times. It was high time they started improving their record as Dortmund visitors…
It was a great game from us. We started well, the first half was brilliant as was the second. We had some difficult moments after the break but we played them out. It was perfect
Zinedine Zidane told reporters after his team’s 3-1 triumph over Borussia, before praising his scorers, Gareth Bale, who opened the scoring in the first half, and Cristiano Ronaldo, who netted twice, on both sides of a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal for Dortmund.
We could have scored more. We had chances. The important thing is to score more than our opponents and we did that. I’m happy for Cristiano… again! I’m delighted for Ronaldo and Bale
the Frenchman said. Not that Madrid were all about Ronaldo and Bale in Dortmund, as Zidane was quick to point out.
The side worked hard: Isco, Modrić, Casemiro and Kroos were marvelous. Everyone was brilliant. It was a tremendous game
the coach of Los Blancos said. Madrid have already picked up six points from their first two matches, and are about to face Tottenham in back-to-back group matches.
