On Tuesday, Real Madrid‘s much-maligned veteran striker Joselu emerged as an unlikely hero, winning twice in the second half to give Carlo Ancelotti‘s team the victory over Union Berlin. After trailing 1-0 at the half, his brace gave Madrid the lead. Dani Ceballos‘ deflected goal then completed a flawless 3-2 victory to cap off Los Blancos‘ Champions League group stage campaign.

After dodging one defender and trying to shoot with his side footed effort from close range, Jude Bellingham had Madrid’s best apparent opportunity of the first few minutes. Nevertheless, Luka Modric‘s penalty attempt on the last seconds of the half, which was saved by Union goalkeeper Frederik Ronnow, gave Madrid the chance to go ahead.

The home team went straight down the other end of the field and found the net through Kevin Volland, making Madrid pay instantly. Given Madrid’s dominance of the game, the equalizer by the visitors was not shocking. At the back post, Joselu rose to nod home Rodrygo’s cross.
