James Rodriguez scores his first Champions League goal for Real Madrid…
James Rodriguez added his name to the scoresheet as Real Madrid took a 4-0 lead against Swiss side Basel in their opening match of the Champions League.
It was a poachers finish from the Colombian as well, reminiscent of the quality he showed at the World Cup:

The £63m signing has struggled during the start of his Madrid career, with reports of disagreements with teammates. Maybe his first goal will help him settle in. Will Rodriguez be a success at Real? That wasn’t the last of the first-half scoring as Basel struck back almost immediately, with this well taken goal making it 4-1:
