Real Madrid are starting the Champions League in the worst possible way.

Zinédine Zidane's men bowed to Shakhtar Donetsk (2-3) on the lawn of Santiago Bernabeu, the fault of a disastrous first half.

In the other match of the early evening, Lokomotiv Moscow and RB Salzburg separated in a draw (2-2).

• Real Madrid miss their comeback

Like PSG the day before, Real Madrid, crowned in 2016, 2017 and 2018, missed its entry into the Champions League by conceding an unexpected defeat (2-3) at home against Shakhtar Donetsk, yet decimated by absences.

The Ukrainians even offered themselves the luxury of leading 3-0 at the break against too feverish Madrilenians.

Perfect illustration: this gagged goal against his camp of French Raphael Varane.

Varane own goal 🤣🤣🤣

Three days before a clasico in Barcelona, ​​the Madrilenians raised their heads in the second half by Luka Modric (54th) and Vinicius (59th), but without being able to turn the tide.

Federico Valverde thought to equalize in added time (90th + 2) but his goal was invalidated after resorting to video assistance.
