Video: Club Brugge stun Real Madrid with first-half double, brilliant finish for second

Real Madrid’s miserable start to the Champions League continued on Tuesday evening as they fell 2-0 behind against Club Brugge at the Bernabeu.

Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis scored twice in the opening 40 minutes to pile the pressure on their illustrious hosts, who now face a real task in not only getting something from this game, but perhaps even advancing from the group.
