Sporting Gijon 0-1 Real Madrid: Higuain Steals Victory For Los Merengues

Real Madrid left it late against Sporting Gijon at the Estadio Municipal El Molinón in Gijon, but had Gonzalo Higuain to thank as he pounced on an error from the excellent Juan Pablo with ten minutes remaining.

The hosts started the match brightly and were not afraid to attack Real Madrid but this ploy was soon worked out by Madrid who began to threaten on the counter attack and it wasn't long until they made their first real chance when Gonzalo Higuain hit the post after being put through by Angel Di Maria.

Ozil then blasted over from 8 yards when it seemed easier to score.

The story is too old to be commented.
