In the first half the two sides traded goals to finish tied at two goals apiece. There was even a scuffle following Lionel Messi’s goal to tie the game right before the break.

Early in the second half there was a controversial call on a foul from Dani Alves on Cristiano Ronaldo. It occurred on the edge of the box and Ronaldo was awarded the penalty kick from the spot. Ronaldo then buried the shot to give Real Madrid a 3-2 lead.
