Real Madrid 4-1 Galatasaray – Highlights
Gareth Bale scored a stunning free-kick as 10-man Real Madrid eased their way to victory over Galatasaray and into the last 16 of the Champions League as group winners.
Sergio Ramos was dismissed after 26 minutes but Bale gave Madrid the lead 10 minutes later with a curled dead ball effort from 35 yards out. Umut Bulut responded with an equaliser immediately but Roberto Mancini’s side crumbled after the break despite having the extra man.
Alvaro Arbeloa, Angel di Maria and Isco all got on the scoresheet to condemn the Italian coach to the heaviest defeat of his relatively short spell in charge of the Turkish champions.
Galatasaray must now beat Juventus at home in a fortnight’s time if they are to reach the latter rounds and Mancini is to avoid his fourth exit at the group stage of Europe’s elite competition.
