Newport County took the lead early when a lovely through ball split the defence which left Nikolic 1v1, who calmly slotted home to make it 1-0. 

After constant pressure and missed chances from Real Madrid, they were eventually rewarded when a brilliant cross into the box landed perfectly in Afobe's path to volley it passed the goalkeeper.

Newport County responded well and it only took 4 minutes for them to regain the lead right before half time. A through ball sent Ola John through on goal with the Madrid defender chasing him down, but a quick 'McGeady Spin' sent the defender off to the shops and John was left with only the keeper to beat. 

Real Madrid dominated possession for the rest of the game but Newport County managed to see the game out.
