United Bags Draw With Madrid At The Santiago Bernabeu

Last night was a great night for football for neutrals and club fans alike. The atmosphere was impressive as Real Madrid and Manchester United (both title contenders in their respective leagues) went toe to toe in the European Champions League at the Santiago Bernabeu. The match ended in a 1-1 draw with a goal each from  Christiano Ronaldo (who obviously enjoyed scoring against his former team, but probably didn’t celebrate much out of respect) for Madrid, and Danny Welbeck for United.

The highlight of the match was of course watching Christiano Ronaldo jump like 12 feet in the air to score his header.

This isn’t the first time these two teams have been on opposite sides of the same field. The first time they played was in April 1957 and their latest clash was in April 2003.

First, in 2003 there was this:

Then a decade later, there was this:

You’d think United players would tackle the Ronaldos better….

Out of nine games played, Madrid have won three and lost two. Four of the matches were draws. While Madrid remains unbeaten at home, they beat United at Old Trafford 3-2 in 2000.

Real Madrid will play their away match on the 5th of March at Old Trafford.
