QTY Event Time

A scrappy game between the Boro and Real Madrid.  The Spaniards looked to attack early and try and get an early goal.  In the 22nd last season MVP Taider got a great pass from Afobe to be through on goal only to take a terrible shot that sailed wide right from a short distance.  Afobe had an even better chance just 3 minutes later when he dribble in got past a defender and had and open right side of the net only to push that shot wide right as well.  Madrid were made to pay for the misses in the 30th when Poulsen got by Theo-Catherine and shot past a hapless Tom Heaton for the opening goal.  After the break Heaton had to make a save on a shot form American Bobby Wood only for the Hawaiian to drill shot past him just 9 minutes later to double the Boro lead.  Youngster Sam Gallagher came on in the 2nd have and forced the Boro Keeper Padelli into a diving stop to preserve the shut out.  Tanaka had one more chance but he also was not able to get the shot on target and the game ended 2-0 to the visitors.
