Real Madrid right themselves

After their embarrassment on Monday night, Real have bounced back to their normal form. They came out shooting against Tokyo Verdy and managed to find net in just the second minute. Naruoka was able to tie it up in the 23rd, but Ronaldo would not let that stand for long. In the 27th minute he pushed in a penalty kick to go up 2-1. Ronaldo was able to find net again in the closing moments of the game on a quick counterattack. Overall, the match was pretty even. I'm sure this has something to do with Verdy being a good squad but also because Pavón, Helguera, Gravesen and Owen were all sitting out for much of the match.
