Real Madrid’s Last-Minute Goal
It was very difficult for the players of Real Madrid to score a goal. However, this does not mean that they did not make an attempt either. Most of the players tried their luck including, Vinicius Junior and Luka Modric.
Even after half-time, the two Real Madrid players did not hesitate to give it a shot. While Luca Modric’s attempt deflected wide, that of Vinicius Junior resulted to be an overestimated shot. The attempt had been made from a close range but it still went beyond the target. The Spanish football club continued struggling to make a goal until Ferland Mendy scored. He made a goal in the last 87 minutes of the game. The shot was attempted from a long-range.
The delayed goal came as a relief to Real Madrid in general and Ferland Mendi in particular. It would have been the worst day of his life had he not scored. He had come to play the match all the way from Italy. The last-minute goal has also changed the fate of the team. They are now heading towards the quarterfinals.
