Real Madrid force 2-1 win against Ludogorets Razgrad, Liverpool lose in Champions League Open in new window
Source Icon DNA - India
Real Madrid and Liverpool found their combined 15 European titles were no protection on the road in the Champions League. Ten-time champion Real Madrid trailed early against Bulgarian newcomer Ludogorets Razgrad, which was only formed as a club 13 years ago - in the same season the Spanish giant won its ninth title. After Ludogorets' stunning sixth-minute opener, Cristiano Ronaldo had a penalty saved and then scored with a second spot-kick in the 24th, before Madrid got substitute Karim Benzema's 77th-minute goal to force a 2-1 win. We played as equal to Real and I am delighted with our performance, Ludogorets coach Georgi Dermendzhiev said. Five-time winner Liverpool lost 1-0 at Basel, which specialises in beating English opponents, and trails Group B leader Madrid by three points before hosting the title holder next. I thought we were too soft all over the pitch, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard said, adding his team didn't deserve anything against Switzerland's champion. Borussia Dortmund won 3-0 at Anderlecht, and leads Group D by three points from Arsenal, which beat Galatasaray 4-1 despite goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny being sent off with 30 minutes left. Atletico Madrid, runner-up last season, beat Juventus 1-0 through Arda Turan's 75th-minute goal, and Malmo's 2-0 victory against Olympiakos left Group A with all four teams on three points. Zenit St Petersburg and Monaco drew 0-0 to share the Group C lead with four points, while Bayer Leverkusen beat Benfica 3-1. Ludogorets' fans have to travel 335 kilometers (210 miles) to watch their team play at the national stadium in Sofia because the club's 6,000-seat arena does not meet Champions League standards. But the supporters soon had reason to celebrate after Brazilian midfielder Marcelinho headed in a cross flicked on to the far post. Ronaldo had a 10th-minute penalty saved by goalkeeper Vladislav Stoyanov, but soon got a second chance to convert and close on Raul Gonzalez's record of 71 Champions League goals in the group stage and knockout rounds. Ronaldo has scored 69 goals - not including one in a qualifying-round match - and leads Lionel Messi by one in what promises to be a season-long duel.
