Real Madrid were on the receiving end of what was a harsh result at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium. The Whites succumbed to a 1-0 away defeat to CSKA, with the whole complexion of the contest altered by Vlasic’s second-minute strike. After going behind, Lopetegui‘s men dictated the play and carved out the best of the chances. The closest Madrid came to scoring was when Casemiro, Benzema and Mariano were all denied by the frame of the goal. However, ultimately the team failed to muster a goal and now have to focus on the back-to-back meetings with Viktoria Plzen.
