Watch stunning winning goal as FC Sheriff produce one of Champions League’s biggest ever shocks with win at Real Madrid


MOLDOVAN champions FC Sheriff have produced one of the greatest Champions League shocks after beating Real Madrid 2-1 at the Bernabeu.

Competing in the European Cup group stages for the first time in their history, Sheriff now sit top of Group D – three points ahead of Los Blancos.

And they are five points ahead of Inter Milan and Shakhtar with the pair both suffering a draw and a defeat from their first two fixtures.

Sheriff can have Sebastien Thill to thank for a famous night in Spain after he banged in one of the finest goals in the Champions League this season in the 89th minute.

The 27-year-old midfielder – on loan from Luxembourg outfit Progres Niederkorn – hammered a left-footed half-volley from outside the box into the top corner past the outstretched arms of Thibaut Courtois.

He instantly took off his shirt and ran to the corner flag where he was mobbed by his jubilant team-mates.

Sheriff had looked like they was going to settle for a point after Karim Benzema’s 65th minute penalty cancelled out Jasurbek Yakhshiboev’s headed opener.

Madrid fans jeered Sheriff’s players after the full-time whistle over their wild celebrations.

Real have now won just five out of their last 13 European games on home soil.

They lost home and away to Ukrainian side Shakhtar last season that threatened to see then fail to advance to the knockout stages.

Brazilian midfielder Casemiro was left shocked after the match, with Madrid scoring just one from a whopping 31 shots.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side also had 76 per cent possession, but they were guilty of squandering huge chances from the likes of Eden Hazard, Vinicius Junior and Benzema.

Casemiro said: “This is soccer. We were in control during the entire match and had many scoring chances.

“They had only two and scored twice.”
