Player statistic

Real Madrid started the game strong and won a penalty early in the match but couldn't convert from the spot.

Newport County then hit on the counter attack and a nice bit of skill from Lodeiro allowed him to lose the defender and calmly slot it under the keeper to make it 1-0.

Newport County went 2-0 up after Ola John created space inside the box to fire a shot across the keeper and into the back of the net.

The third goal came only 3 minutes later after a through ball split the defence to send Nikolic 1 on 1 with the keeper and calmly slot it into the corner.

Scott Sinclair scored the fourth after another counter attack and nice bit of dribbiling passed a couple of defenders allowed him to hit a shot under the keeper.

Real Madrid got a consolation goal in the 83rd minute when a quick counter attack sent Bobby Wood through on goal to finish. 

Real Madrid had a few more decent opportunities to score but Barbosa was in top form for Newport again.
