After an emotional tribute to Alfredo Di Stéfano, the Santiago Bernabéu witnessed a very tight first half. The first chance of the game came after eleven minutes with a shot from Gareth Bale that was deflected wide, and moments later Saúl Ñíguez tried is luck, but Iker Casillas was up to the task. Later, Real Madrid tried to take the initiative and cause problems for their opponents both wings, but the Rojiblancos proved solid and the scoreboard stayed unchanged in the first half.
