Real Madrid vs Lyon

 Any bit of fear at having to face our Champions League "bogey team" is hopefully gone from the minds of every Real Madrid fan since: Real Madrid CF beat Olympique Lyonnais 2-0!!
(Yes it's worthy of all bold, all caps even)

We beat our "bogey team" (coincidentally(?), days after Halloween) to maintain our 100% Group record and reserve a spot in the Champions League round of 16 with two matches to spare. (I wonder if Mou will use them to clear some yellows...)

Lyon were looking to protect a year-long unbeaten home record (24 matches) but such hopes were dashed by the 23 minute in which Cristiano Ronaldo netted a free-kick.

The locals were more aggressive after half-time. However, a challenge in the penalty area sealed their fate. Ronaldo converted his 100th goal as a Madridista in the 69th minute.

True or False: Ronaldo's first goal for Madrid was a penalty.

Cr7 nets his 99th goal for Madrid

Madrid will now look to clinch top spot by beating GNK Dinamo Zagreb. A now third-placed Lyon will have to beat Ajax, currently second, in order to continue their impressive record of always reaching the Last 16 for the past eight years.

Real Madrid Beat Sociadad... Narrowly and UEFA preview

Real Madrid had a perfect month, winning all their games in October and all they needed was one goal in the 9th minute from Higuain to seal it.
A good first half effort involving Gonzalo Higuain and Fabio Coentrao proved enough to help Real Madrid emerge from San Sebastian with a hard-earned 1-0 victory over Real Sociedad.
