Full-Time: RB Leipzig 0 – 1 Real Madrid

Real Madrid Steal Victory in Leipzig Despite Diaz’s Injury

Real Madrid snatched a narrow 1-0 lead in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg against RB Leipzig, but their triumph was tempered by an injury to Brahim Diaz, who delivered the winning goal.


Diaz, filling in for the injured Jude Bellingham, produced a moment of magic in the second half, cutting inside from the right and curling a delightful shot past Peter Gulacsi.

However, his joy was short-lived as he was forced off soon after with an apparent injury.

This poses a potential dilemma for Carlo Ancelotti, who already faces Bellingham’s absence due to an ankle problem.

With both key midfielders potentially unavailable for the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real Madrid’s midfield depth will be tested in three weeks.
