Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk Highlights

Real Madrid vs Shakhtar Donetsk Live Score

59' WHAT AN IMPACT!!! VINICIUS MAKES IT 3-2! Within moments of coming on, the Brazilian pounces on loose play in the Shakhtar defence. After winning possession, he drives into the area before drilling a low shot into the bottom corner.

56' WHAT A CHANCE! Shakhtar should have restored their three-goal cushion immediately. Korniyenko gets away down the left before pulling the ball back to the penalty spot, where Tete shoots wide.

54' Assist Marcelo Vieira da Silva Júnior
L. Modrić
Real Madrid
54' WHAT A GOAL!!! MODRIC PULLS ONE BACK! 3-1! That was just what Real needed as Modric skips away from a couple of challenges, before unleashing a fierce 30-yard strike into the top corner. Is this the start of the comeback?

48' Shakhtar with a chance to break at the other end with Tete leading the charge. However, he just takes too long on the ball and Militao intercepts him.
47' The hosts go straight onto the attack and Bondar is forced to crucially head a dangerous cross away with Benzema lurking.
46' WE'RE BACK UNDERWAY! Real get the ball rolling once more.


42' SOLOMON!!! IT'S THREE! Don't scratch your eyes; this is happening! Shakhtar pull further clear following a devastating counter. Solomon finds Tete, whose clever backheel puts the midfielder clear on goal, and he calmly rolls the ball into the bottom corner.

33' OWN GOAL!!! 2-0 SHAKHTAR! The Ukrainians are in dreamland! Tete is involved again as he cuts in from the right before his powerful shot is parried by Courtois. With Dentinho lurking, Varane looks to intervene but only succeeds in sending the ball beyond his own goalkeeper.

29' Assist Viktor Kornienko
Shakhtar Donetsk
29' TETE!!! SHAKHTAR LEAD 1-0! The visitors take a shock lead as Korniyenko embarks on a strong run into the area from left-back. He then does well to keep the move alive by sliding in to lay the ball off for Tete, who guides it into the far corner and beyond the reach of Courtois.

27' Although, it is worth noting that Real have only won once in their last six home games in the Champions League. Three of those have been defeats.

22' Real look to regain the upper hand after they are awarded a free-kick near the touchline. Shakhtar deal with Asensio's dangerous cross, before Militao is penalised for handball.
20' Of course, Shakhtar's European pedigree cannot be underestimated by any means. UEFA Cup winners in 2009, they reached the semi-finals of the Europa League last season before losing to Internazionale. This year was also the 21st in succession that they have qualified for any stage of the Champions League.

18' This is a good spell for the Ukrainian champions. They force a corner this time and Marlos' delivery is met by Bondar, but he is unable to direct his header towards goal.
16' Those are the chances that Shakhtar must take if they are to prevail victorious today. They have had two fantastic opportunities to open the scoring and on both occasions, Marlos should have done better in all fairness.

14' YOU'VE GOT TO SCORE! Real caught napping as an onside Marlos latches onto a ball over the top of the defence. The skipper is clean through but hesitates as he advances into the box, and his tame shot is kept out by Courtois.

12' WHAT A WASTE! Shakhtar have a magnificent opportunity to counter as they swarm forward with Marlos leading the charge. The skipper has Tete to his right, but just delays for too long because asking a lot of his team-mate with the through ball. A relief for Real as they clear their lines.
10' Real look to threaten again as Varane seeks out Rodrygo with a brilliantly executed crossfield ball. However, the Brazilian was unable to stay onside and is rightly penalised by the linesman.
V. Kornienko
Yellow Card
Shakhtar Donetsk
8' Korniyenko is shown the first yellow card of the game after a dangerous lunge on Mendy. He can have few complaints with that one.

7' Real are certainly the favourites for this contest. History would certainly back up their claim on home soil, where they have only been beaten once in the Champions League group stages since 2009. That defeat came against CSKA Moscow in December 2018, albeit with Los Blancos' progress to the knockout rounds already secured.

5' Good save! Trubin is called into action as Asensio makes his way into the box. The winger goes for goal from a tight angle and the Shakhtar stopper is forced to palm the ball away.

3' Shakhtar have already adapted a deep defensive position with all players back inside their own half. They do not want to invite too much pressure from their opponents just yet.

1' OFF WE GO! Serbia's Srdjan Jovanovic is our referee today. He blows his whistle and Shakhtar get us underway.
