Well I guess one quarter of a billion Euros can’t buy you Champions League success. Maybe in the La Liga. Real Madrid, riding high on their 3-2 win over Sevilla in the weekend, Real opened strong with a quick Cristiano Ronaldo goal, looking likely to crush the French visitors. Nope. Too many first half misses and a very weak second half, with Lyon growing more and more confident as the minutes went by, Miralem Pjanic scored the goal that everybody felt was coming, sending Pellegrini and his “Galacticos” home, for the sixth straight season, in the second round of the Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo, 6th minute
Miralem Pjanic, 75th minute
