It's been all Real Madrid in the opening 15 minutes from the Santiago Bernabeu, as they're absolutely taking the game to Lyon. The visitors came to Spain knowing that any score draw would be good enough to at least get to extra time, but they appear to be lacking in composure and they don't look anything like a team that has a chance to draw Real Madrid on the road.
Los Merengues have kept up the pressure, creating chance after chance. Karim Benzema sent a dangerous cross into the box in the 8th minute, but the ball was deflected out for a corner kick that created nothing. The 9th minute saw Pepe get a yellow card for hauling down Yoann Gourcuff, but Lyon were unable to capitalize. The 10th minute saw Ronaldo squander a counter-attack on which him and Benzema probably should have at least challenged the goal, and the two looked dangerous again a minute later when Benzema sent a ball into the box that was gobbled up by Hugo Lloris, who rushed out to deny Ronaldo.
