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. 

It was a similar story after the break. Still neither team was able to take control, although Bale, again, had the best chance so far with a shot across the goal that Miguel Ángel Moyà stopped with a great save. After several dangerous attacks, Real Madrid’s efforts were finally rewarded when the clock read 81, with James Rodríguez cropping up to make it 1-0. As the game was drawing to an end, Raúl García sealed the 1-1 scoreline, leaving the tie completely open.
