Sheriff Tiraspol 0-3 Real Madrid: Visitors reach knockout stage24 November 2021
Real Madrid reached the Champions League knockout stage for the 25th successive year with a comfortable win against Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova.
David Alaba opened the scoring with a free-kick that deflected beyond goalkeeper Giorgos Athanasiadis.
Toni Kroos added a second before the break, firing in off the crossbar, while Karim Benzema then made it three.
It means Real Madrid are through with a game to spare, as are Inter Milan, who beat Shakhtar Donetsk earlier.
Edin Dzeko scored twice after the break in a 2-0 win for the Italians, who visit Real Madrid in the final group game - with only which team qualifies as winners still to be determined.
Carlo Ancelotti's side, who lost the reverse fixture against Sheriff, top the group on 12 points, two above Inter.
