Another shock result might have been on the cards in the Champions League with minnows Sheriff managing to hold 13 times winners Real Madrid until the half hour.

The Austrian stood over the ball along with Toni Kroos, and a whipped left-foot shot hit a defender on the way in to bamboozle the goalkeeper.
