Real Madrid comes back to draw 10-man Club Brugge
Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis scored a pair of first half goals to give Club Brugge a stunning lead over Real Madrid en route to a 2-2 draw at the Bernabeu in UEFA Champions League action on Tuesday.
Sergio Ramos pulled a goal back via a razor-thin onside call which withstood VAR, and Casemiro nodded an equalizer home in the 85th minute. That was a minute after Club Brugge’s Ruud Vormer was sent off for a second yellow card.
Real dominated the second half but its lone point leaves it bottom of the group, three goals of differential back of Galatasaray. The Turkish side drew Club Brugge and meets PSG later.

Club Brugge chased Thibaut Courtois from the match at halftime, and perhaps the move was massive as Alphonse Areola stopped Dennis’ breakaway bid for a hat trick.
Courtois has not been in form, but the move was still surprising given that both of Dennis’ goals had an element of the fortunate to them.
Toni Kroos and Casemiro willed Real back into the match, as attacker Eden Hazard continued his early season struggles at Real.
