Real Madrid need two late goals to beat Leipzig

Real Madrid needed two late goals to beat Leipzig as boss Carlo Ancelotti became the second manager to win 100 Champions League games.

Leipzig missed a host of good chances with Christopher Nkunku denied by Thibaut Courtois twice.

Federico Valverde gave Real an 80th-minute lead from Vinicius Jr’s pass.

And Marco Asensio scored an excellent first-time finish from the edge of the box from Toni Kroos’ free-kick to seal the win for the European champions.

This is the first time they have won their opening two Champions League games since 2017-18.

Only Manchester United legend Alex Ferguson (102) has won more games in the tournament than Real boss Ancelotti.
