Madrid humbled by 3-3 draw at Legia

first_imgWARSAW, Poland (AP):Real Madrid needed a late goal to salvage a humbling 3-3 draw at struggling Legia Warsaw in the Champions League yesterday.Madrid looked set to romp to another big win after Gareth Bale netted an amazing opener from distance in the first minute before then setting up Karim Benzema to make it 2-0.But Madrid’s slack defence – and over-confidence – let Legia rally back in stunning fashion to take the lead. Vadis Odjidja and Miroslav Radovic struck from long range before Thibault Moulin also scored from outside the area in the 83rd.Madrid were facing a humiliating defeat until midfielder Mateo Kovacic fired in from near the edge of the box in the 85th to at least rescue a point.Madrid substitute Lucas Vazquez almost turned the result back around when he sent a shot off the crossbar right before the final whistle.Though it was a memorable match for Legia’s players, the home fans missed it completely.The game was played at a near-empty Wojska Polskiego Stadium as the club had been banned from selling tickets by UEFA following racist behaviour and the throwing of fireworks by supporters during a previous loss to Borussia Dortmund.”It was strange playing without spectators, but it’s no excuse. We are not happy with the result,” Bale said. “We had control of the game and lost concentration and if you do this at this level you get punished. We need to be better defensively and the chances we have we need to be more clinical. We can learn from this be stronger from it.”In other games, Dortmund beat Sporting 1-0, the same margin of victory for Porto over Club Brugge and Leverkusen over Tottenham. Sevilla slammed four unanswered goals past Dinamo Zagreb, with Monaco brushing aside CSKA Moscow 3-0. Juventus were held 1-1 at home by Lyon with Copenhagen holding Leicester to a 0-0 draw.last_img read more
