UCL: Real Madrid score six; Spurs thrash Belgrade, Man City held at Atalanta

Real Madrid

Spanish giants, Real Madrid scored six goals at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night against Galatasaray in a Champions League group match.

18-year-old Rodrygo netted a hat-trick while Karim Benzema scored a brace and became only the second player – after Barcelona’s Lionel Messi to score in a 15th consecutive Champions League campaign.

Sergio Ramos also scored, from the penalty spot, as the defeat for Galatasaray ensured the Turkish side will crash out of the competition.

In group A’s other match, leaders Paris Saint-Germain beat Club Brugge 1-0 in Paris to maintain their perfect start to the campaign.

In Group D, Bayer Leverkusen earned some hopes with their first victory of the campaign as they defeated Atletico Madrid 2-1.

Group leaders, Juventus had defeated Lokomotiv Moscow 2-1 earlier in the day.
