Footage Emerges Of Real Madrid’s Comically Bad Defending For First Goal In 2-0 Defeat To Shakhtar Donetsk
Real Madrid suffered a horror-show display of defending in Shakhtar Donetsk's opening goal in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Los Blancos are on the verge of a shock exit from Europe's top-tier club competition after a 2-0 defeat to the Ukrainian side.
Brazilian forward Dentinho opened the scoring in the 57th minute as Viktor Kovalenko drilled a low ball into the box and Ferland Mendy failed to clear the ball.
The ball bounced back in the danger area and Madrid's defensive nightmare continued as Raphael Varane left the ball, only for Dentinho to charge into the box and slam the ball past Thibaut Courtois.
Footage has now emerged to show how bad Madrid's defending really was in the build-up to Dentinho's opener at the NSC Olimpiyskiy.
Five Madrid players, including Martin Odegaard and Rodrygo, were clustered together on the pitch and watched on as Shakhtar took the lead.
