The Real Madrid youth side overcame Legia Warszawa to maintain their unbeaten record in the competition.

  • Matchday 3 (Groupe Stage)

Alfredo Di Stéfano
The Real Madrid Under-19s prevailed in a fixture which proved to be tougher than expected against Legia Warszawa in Matchday 3 of the UEFA Youth League. The Real Madrid youth side saw off the bottom side in the group at the Di Stéfano to take full advantage of the draw between Sporting CP and Borussia Dortmund to tighten their grip on top spot in Group F. An own goal and strikes from Franchu and Dani Gómez secured victory for the hosts.

The Whites struck first after a mistake when the Polish outfit were playing the ball out from the back for Franchu to break the deadlock on 4'. The Argentine midfielder linked up with Óscar before producing a quality finish when one-on-one against Majecki to net his first goal in the competition.

All square at the break
Legia recovered after this early setback and despite both Fran García - before coming off injured - and Sergio Díaz having fine opportunities to have made it 2-0, the visitors displayed an adventurous approach to get amongst the madridistas and they duly levelled matters before the break through Kulenovic.

Franchu and Dani Gómez were on target to open their accounts in the competition.

Guti's charges improved after the interval, bossing possession and managing to pin the opposition back, as the hosts were camped in and around the Poles' area in search of victory. Dani Gómez, who had recently entered the fray, applied the finishing touch to a team move on 61 minutes, but just minutes later Legia once again hit back from a corner.

Late winner
Far from being disheartened, the U19s reacted to take all three points. They kept probing in attack and their efforts were rewarded on 76', when in one of his trademark surges found, Achraf  reached the by-line and his cross was turned into his own net by Nawotka to hand the hosts victory at the Di Stéfano.

3-Real Madrid: Luca, Achraf, Álex, Manu, Fran García (Cobo, 29’), Martín, Toni (Dani Gómez, 56’), Óscar, Franchu, Alberto (Zabarte, 81’) and Sergio Díaz.
2-Legia Warszawa: Majecki, Ostrowski, Bondarenko, Zyro, Michalak (Leleno, 78’), Urbanski, Malachowski (Czarnowski, 63’), Ryczkowski, Nawotka, Szymanski and Kulenovic (Waniek, 69’).
