Galatasaray wins a 3-2 consolation victory against Real Madrid

 

Galatasaray fell just short of achieving a football miracle in Istanbul’s Turk Telekom Arena tonight, beating Real Madrid 3-2 in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinal, which was not quite enough to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first game.

Mission Impossible” became that bit harder for the Lions when Real Madrid took a 1-0 lead with a Ronaldo goal in the seventh minute. However the second half was another story, as Galatasaray began to lay siege on Diego Lopez’s goal. Former Arsenal player Emmanuel Eboue reaped Galatasaray’s first rewards, pulling a goal back in the 57th minute with a rocket from the edge of the area.
