Real Madrid 3-0 Braga: Comfortable win sends Los Blancos into Last 16

Real Madrid booked their spot in the Champions League Last 16 round with a 3-0 home win over Braga on Wednesday.

Real Madrid qualified for the UEFA Champions League Last 16 round after a comfortable 3-0 home victory against Braga. Ancelotti’s side has won all of its four group-stage matches. Napoli is in second place with seven points.

Bragao won a penalty after Vázquez’s foul on Cristian Borja in the 4th minute. However, Lunin saved Alvaro Djaló’s penalty with a brilliant reaction. Lunin replaced Kepa shortly before kick-off when Arrizabalaga pulled out with an injury.

Brahim Diaz finally broke the deadlock for Real Madrid in the 27th minute. Mendy sent the ball behind the Braga defense. Rodrygo passed the ball back for Brahim Diaz to fire it into the roof of the net.

Real doubled its lead in the 58th minute through Vinicius Junior. Lucas Vázquez passed the ball into the feet of Vinicius. The Brazilian winger fired the ball across the goalkeeper into the far corner.

Rodrygo scored the third goal for Real Madrid on a counterattack in the 61st minute. Vinicius Junior found Rodrygo in the area, and he scored with a beautiful dink finish over the goalkeeper.
