Score 1-0 to the advantage of the host closed the first half.
The situation changed thanks to Al Jazira goalkeeper Ali Khaseif suffered an injury in the 51st minute. As a substitute, Khaled Al Senani was unable to stem the tide of pressure from Real Madrid.
Just two minutes after coming in, he picked up the ball from his net from Cristiano Ronaldo’s run. The star takes advantage of breakthrough bait from Luca Modric before firing horizontally into the bottom left corner of the goal.
Al Senani is not so bad. He had time to dispel Karim Benzema’s shot ball in the 62nd minute.
