Real Madrid 3-0 Down To COVID-Stricken Shakhtar Donetsk At Half-Time Of Champions League

Real Madrid 3-0 Down To COVID-Stricken Shakhtar Donetsk At Half-Time Of Champions League

Real Madrid have made the worst possible start to the 2020/21 Champions League campaign, with the 13-time European champions 3-0 down at home to Shakhtar Donetsk at half-time.

Goals from Tete and Manor Solomon either side of a Raphael Varane own goal completed a miserable first half for Zinedine Zidane's side in their first group game at the Alfredo di Stefano Stadium.

The horrendous showing from Los Blancos is even worse when you consider that Shakhtar are essentially playing their reserve squad having been without a total of ten first-team players for the game due to COVID-19.

Real's recent performances at home in Europe's premier competition have been nothing short of shambolic. Their last seven home Champions League fixtures include a 3-0 loss to CSKA, a 4-1 hiding inflicted by Ajax and a 2-2 draw with Club Brugge where they were 2-0 down at half-time.

There hasn't been a single victory in those outings.

Real need a massive second half if they are going to turn this around.
