Game Report

Highlights

Roma were punished for some dreadful howlers as Real Madrid came away from Stadio Olimpico with a 2-0 win and top spot in Group G. The Giallorossi dominated the first half but Cengiz Ünder missed an absolute sitter and a comedy of errors at the back allowed Gareth Bale to give Real the lead just after the interval. Lucas Vazquez then sealed the points for the European champions - although both sides had already qualified.

Detail

There was good news for both teams before kick-off as CSKA Moscow's defeat to Viktoria Plzen meant they were already both through to the knockout stage but top spot in the group was still up for grabs so neither side could afford to take the foot off the gas.

Roma really took the game to the European champions in the first half and should have taken a lead into the break. They had a host of chances in one attack as Federico Fazio, Patrick Schick and Steven N'Zonzi all had shots blocked in front of goal whilst Aleksandar Kolarov fired a blistering effort just wide.

Real Madrid were defending desperately at times but they shouldn't have gotten away with it when Daniel Carvajal gave the ball away deep in his own half to Nicolo Zaniolo. The youngster laid the ball on a plate for Ünder to tap in but the Turk inexplicably skied over the bar from no more than a couple of yards out - it will certainly be one of the misses of the season.

Things went from bad to worse for the Giallorossi straight after half-time. Robin Olsen shanked a kick straight up into the air and Fazio attempted to head it back to him but instead gave it straight to Bale who wasn't going to pass up such a gift.

The visitors started to show a bit more of their best form in the second half and virtually put the game to bed just before the hour mark. Bale was involved again as he lifted a cross up to the far-post where Benzema nodded it down for Vasquez to tap in.

Summary

Roma must be wondering how they've conspired to lose that game. They were well on top in the first half but Ünder's miss seemed to demoralise them and the errors kept piling up after the break. The consolation for them is that they're through to the knockout stage along with Real Madrid who certainly rode their luck in the Italian capital. They seem to have an affinity with this competition though and Santiago Solari will be hoping they play themselves into form as it progresses.
