A Gonzalo Higuain header from a Xabi Alonso set piece brought Real Madrid a third goal against Galatasaray in their UEFA Champions League quarter final first leg.
Gonzalo Higuain headed a Xabi Alonso free kick in to the Galatasaray goal as Real Madrid looked to cement their superiority.
Having already gone ahead with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema, Los Meringues were well in control of the tie, but having allowed Galatasaray a number of chances to score themselves, perhaps they were fortunate to be in that position.
The best sides are the most clinical though, and Real Madrid took advantage of poor performances from both Galatasaray full backs to score three goals, and Higuain’s strike was the icing on the cake.
