Real lose in last-gasp Thriller

Cristiano Ronaldo's absence was felt as AC Milan left the Spanish capital with three points in the Champions League.

The first half was all Real Madrid, who went into halftime with a one goal lead thanks to Raul.

The second half saw both teams increase the tempo, and in a three minute span the visitors managed to turn around the score with goals by Pirlo and Pato.

But Milan’s advantage was short-lived as Drenthe, who replaced Granero, found the back of the net from the top of the box for the equalizer. The match was wide open for the taking, and Milan’s man-of-the-match, Alexandre Pato, hammered home the winner with a brilliant strike near the end of regulation.
