Moldovan Side Sheriff Tiraspol Beat Real Madrid At The Bernabeu With Insane 90th Minute Goal

Sheriff Tiraspol beat Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu courtesy of an incredible last minute goal.

The Moldovan side are playing in the Champions League group stages for the first time in the history and made their presence felt with a huge upset on Tuesday evening.

They bested the competition's most decorated club, 13-time champions Real, with midfielder Sebastien Thill thumping a worldie past Thibaut Courtois and into the top corner to spark some sensational scenes.

Thill promptly removed his shirt in celebration and was mobbed by his teammates.

Thill became the first player from Luxembourg to score in the Champions League and his side were able to see out the final few minutes to register a memorable victory that moves them onto six points in Group D.

Jasurbek Yakhshiboev had given the visitors a surprise lead in the first half before Karim Benzema levelled matters from the spot with 25 minutes remaining.

But then Thill whacked in a beauty to give Sheriff one of the biggest upsets in Champions League history.

You won't see a more shocking result in Europe this season.

Thill, 27, was in complete and utter euphoria - even more so because he has a tattoo on his left leg featuring the Champions League trophy in a dream.

Sheriff, whose record signing Marko Markovski cost a mere €1 million, started their qualifying campaign back in July and made history when they beat Shakhtar Donetsk in the first matchday.

As of August this year, they had a lower UEFA club coefficient ranking than both Burnley and Everton.
