Mou's Man Utd Need Penalties To Sink Ronaldo-Less Real

International Champions Cup 

Report: Real Madrid 1 (1) -(2) 1 Manchester United

Date: 23 July 2017

Venue: Levi's Stadium

Jose Mourinho came up against one of his former sides, as Manchester United defeated Real Madrid 2-1 on penalties in the International Champions Cup.

Mourinho opted to leave Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku on the bench, while Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Lucas Vazquez led the line for Los Blancos.

United carved out the first opening after just seven minutes as Jesse Lingard forced Keylor Navas into a good save from the edge of the box.

 
Both sides were sloppy in possession of the ball, which led to a lack of chances on both ends of the field for most of the opening stanza.
 
After a quiet spell in the half, United broke the deadlock on the stroke of halftime as Anthony Martial raced into the box before teeing up Lingard for the simple finish.
 
Zinedine Zidane made a few changes at the start of the second half as Casemiro and Kovacic were introduced. While Mourinho brought on Lukaku, Pogba, David de Gea, Ander Herrera and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
 
While Real were struggling to carve out chances, United nearly doubled their lead in the 62nd minute but Marouane Fellaini headed over the crossbar from close range.
 
Eight minutes later, Los Blancos were awarded a penalty when Theo Hernandez was brought down by Victor Lindelof. Casemiro stepped up and slotted home the penalty, 1-1.
 
Mourinho opted for another change with just 15 minutes remaining as Matteo Darmian made way for Antonio Valencia.
 
Both sides pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages but were unable to find the back of the net, forcing the clash into a penalty shoot-out, where the Red Devils triumped with De Gea saving two spot-kicks.

"Ronaldo-less" or "Ronaldo's assit wins the game for Madrid" editors are starting to get on my nerves now. What's so special about ronaldo is he bigger than Madrid he is not even better than modric,Ramos and co . Please stop with your favourism
