Real Madrid

defeated Union Berlin 1-0 in their first game of the Champions League with a late second-half goal from Jude Bellingham.

Carlo Ancelotti, the coach of Real Madrid, said after the game that he expected a tough match.

“We expected such a game. It was very difficult. Union Berlin defended very well, there wasn’t space for us. We could have scored before but a last minute goal is very important for us."

he said.

“We fixed some things during half time. We tend to play better in the 2nd half because our opponents press us less. We have more energy. The good thing is that we didn’t concede tonight. We have been very careful. We knew Union Berlin are very strong at set-pieces.”

Real Madrid will play against Atletico Madrid in La Liga next week. They beat Real Sociedad 2-1 in La Liga this week.
