In very controversial circumstances, Manchester United were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League Tuesday night by Real Madrid after the Spanish giants won 2-1 (and 3-2 on aggregate).
Manchester United were the better side for the first half, and were rewarded with a goal early in the second half after Sergio Ramos sent the ball into his own net. But the turning point in the match was when Nani was red carded in the 57th minute after trying to control the ball mid-air. Without seeing his opponent running toward him, Nani leaped up to control the ball but ended up kicking the player in the chest.
The harsh sending off gave Madrid an unfair advantage and they made the most of the opportunity by scoring two goals in quick succession through Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo to steal a massive win at Old Trafford. In one week, Real Madrid has beaten Barcelona twice and conquered Manchester United.
