Union Berlin is hoping for a point at its premiere in the premier class against Real Madrid. But the dream ends in added time.

1. FC Union Berlin lost 0-1 (0-0) on its debut in the Champions League against Spanish record winners Real Madrid. The former Dortmund player scored for the Royals Jew Bellingham in stoppage time. The international press writes:


“Marca”: “Bellingham tore down the Berlin Wall. Real Madrid didn’t deserve a draw. The first half was admittedly somewhere between weak, bad and lacking, not to mention disturbing. Not a single damn chance to score.”

“Ace”: “It’s never too late for Bellingham. Another goal from the Englishman in stoppage time saved Real Madrid, who wasted the first half and only beat the very well-ordered Union Berlin with the final whistle.”

“Mundo Sports”: “In just over 90 minutes of practical lessons, the German team learned that nothing is as it seems at the Santiago Bernabéu. That the Whites find themselves when they seem most lost, that the team waits and waits more and more without doing much, only to finally play when winning is most difficult and the victory promises to be epic. And they usually win.”


“Daily Mail”: “Jude Bellingham wasn’t just born to play for Real Madrid. He was also born to score late, dramatic winners at Santiago Bernabéu. (…) The Germans came with their 5,000 supporters and their clear game plan and for 93 minutes it worked perfectly. Then Bellingham stuck out his right foot and won the game for Real Madrid.”
