Twitter reacts to Actual Madrid shedding to FC Sheriff
The Champions League debutant FC Sheriff has already caused one of the surprises of the season with the 2-1 win against Real Madrid.
Sheriff is a brand new team in the competition this season and found themselves in a seemingly tough group, with Italian giant Inter Milan and European royalty Real Madrid sharing the group with them.
However, after beating Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 in the opening game, the Moldovan team topped Group D together with Real Madrid.
But after today’s performance, they are now three points ahead of Madrid as they upset the apple cart by winning in a row.
Sheriff took the lead in the first half, only with Madrid in the 65-hand corner. A goal of the season contender.
Twitter was understandably upset over the result.
Check out some of the following reactions:
The sheriff shot down Real Madrid …. in Madrid. ?

SHERIFF PLAYS FOOTBALL MANAGER IN REAL LIFE

Of all the storylines tonight, the sheriff who beat Madrid at the Bernabeu has to be the greatest.
What a moment.
If you should be reminded once again why the Super League should never take place the way it is currently organized, then this is the place for you. Must deserve it.
