Wolfsburg and Madrid Match Ended in Goalless



Wolfsburg beat Real Madrid 2-0 in their Champions League quarterfinal first leg, setting up a challenging return leg in Spain for Zinedine Zidane’s team.

Wolfsburg would open the scoring through Ricardo Rodriguez from the penalty spot in the 17th minute. Casemiro fouled Andre Schurrle in plain site of the referee, who awarded the penalty, which the Switzerland international powered past Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Real had been pressing for the first 15 minutes, but the Rodriguez goal seemed to inspire Wolfsburg, who continued to surge forward with confidence. Seven minutes after their first goal, Maximilian Arnold doubled the hosts’ lead, finishing off a nice move with an assist from Bruno Henrique.

Despite trailing two goals to start the second half, Madrid were unable to muster many opportunities against their Bundesliga opponents, as Wolfsburg held Los Blancos at arm’s length through good possession and team passing.

The two teams will meet again for the second leg on April 12 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
