Post.
Marcus Thuram added a second in the second period and the Germans looked comfortable despite Real Madrid's attacks, but a Benzema goal in the 86th minute changed everything. It was a completely different Madrid once it went 2-1, Casemiro levelled when Gladbach were hanging on for their lives. They even tried to win it, but they ran out of time and that would have been cruel on Gladbach.
94'
FT: Gladbach 2-2 Real Madrid!! All over in Germany and there's no doubt RM will be much happier with the result given the last 10 minutes. That said, I think a draw was probably fair. Gladbach were just clinical.
94'
The Germans get a chance to go up the other end and nearly win it, but Real manage to clear and it's all over!
94'
Madrid want to win this although that would be harsh on the Germans.
93'
That's a huge goal for the La Liga side and it's a different Madrid since Benzema scored.
93'
2-2!!!!! Can you believe it??? What a fightback!!! Modric sends a ball into the box, Ramos heads it straight to Casemiro in the middle and he makes no mistake!
92'
Another free-kick for the hosts a bit closer. A ball into the box is half cleared by Gladbach.
92'
Free-kick for RM at midfield. This urgency should have been showed earlier.
91'
Four added minutes. Hofmann goes down wanting a free-kick and to waste some time, but the ref says no.
89'
Bensebaini hits a free-kick miles over the goal! Shocking.
88'
Casemiro is booked for a foul just outside the box! The ref tried to play advantage.
87'
Benzema pulls one back for RM!! Valverde's cross find Casemiro who just heads it back before it goes out and Benzema hooks the loose ball into the back of the net! Game on!
85'
Neuhaus clearly pulls back Modric and is carded.
84'
RM sub: Rodrygo on for Asensio.
82'
Still no sign of a Real Madrid comeback here. Gladbach are comfortable.
79'
Gladbach double sub: Plea and Stindl off, Wolf and Embolo on.
79'
Bensebaini is carded for a foul.
77'
Valverde has a pop from distance and it's blocked! Valverde then prevents Gladbach from having a shot on the counter.
75'
RM get a free-kick. but Gladbach deal with it.
74'
Hazard!!! Benzema keeps the ball in play, his pass to Hazard megs an opponent and the Belgian's shot finds the side netting.
72'
Lucas Vazquez launches a ball into the box and Lainer gets there before Benzema.
71'
Gladbach sub: Thuram is taken off and Herrmann is on.
70'
RM double sub: Vinicius and Kroos off, Hazard and Modric on.
69'
The ball is half-cleared and Asensio's effort goes straight to the goalie.
68'
Free-kick to RM after Kramer is adjudged to have fouled Valverde. Very dicey call that. Looks a generous free-kick to me.
66'
Stindl!!!! His shot goes across the keeper and it very nearly finds the far corner! A third Gladbach goal is becoming more likely.
65'
Vinicius' cross is easily caught by Sommer. They just have no cutting edge. Of the 3 goals on Saturday, the second was a penalty and the third came when Barca threw everyone forward.
64'
Plea's cross is deflected into Courtois' hands.
64'
Thuram is fouled and it's another Gladbach free-kick.
62'
The Gladbach community manager can't quite believe his/her eyes!
61'
It's so nearly 3-0!!!! Plea is one on one with Courtois and the Belgian makes an important stop! RM are in a mess here.
60'
RM could have no points from two games in the group and two games against Inter Milan are to come... RM supporters may have got their hopes up after the win over Barca, but Barca are not playing well at the moment.
59'
Gladbach have had few chances, but they look much more dangerous. The VAR gave the goal the all clear.
58'
Thuram scores for Gladbach!!! It's 2-0. VAR will check! Thuram starts the move, Lainer looks just onside, the cross is fired by Plea towards goal, Courtois saves and Thuram taps in. Thuram wasn't offside as Mendy was playing the whole stadium on.
55'
Stindl sees yellow for a clear foul on Asensio.
55'
Courtois is fouled from the corner and RM get the set piece.
54'
Vital intervention by Casemiro!! Kramer makes a lovely run into the box and Casemiro makes a vital stop!
53'
Kroos' ball in is chested down by Bensebaini and the Algerian clears with ease.
52'
Asensio is fouled in the Gladbach half.
50'
Lovely play by Valverde down this near side, he squares for Vinicius who hits wide.
49'
Real Madrid again!!! Mendy's deflected effort goes for a corner!
46'
Off the bar!!!! Asensio shoots into the ground and the ball strikes the bar!! Neuhaus actually heads it onto the bar! On the counter, Thuram threatens, but it comes to nothing.
46'
Sommer makes a mistake and concedes the corner.
46'
Back underway!!
45'
HT: Gladbach 1-0 Real Madrid!! Half-time in Germany. Real were the better team for 30 minutes, but the Germans punished Kroos and Varane's errors and Thuram gave the hosts the advantage. The Spaniards had several chances early on, but lacked the cutting edge in the final third and dropped off once they fell behind. Zidane has work to do at the interval. Back for more shortly!
45'
The free-kick is terrible. Goal kick.
45'
Free-kick to Gladbach 35 yards from goal. One added minute.
43'
Lucas Vazquez puts a cross to the far post and it comes to nothing.
40'
The Germans are having a bit more possession now. The Spanish side haven't played badly today, but they need a bit more of a cutting edge in the final third.
38'
Great save! Asensio is played in and his shot from a tight angle is knocked for a corner.
38'
Varane had a mare once again in the goal. He is messing up in this competition recently. Kroos didn't cover himself in glory either.
36'
Gladbach 1 shot, 1 on target, RM 10 shots, 2 on target.
35'
Goal confirmed!
34'
VAR is checking something here...
33'
Thuram scores for Gladbach!!! Can you believe it? Kroos makes a terrible pass and then Varane also makes a terrible mistake at the back, Plea passes for Thuram at the far post who fires home!
31'
Hofmann is caught offside!
30'
Asensio has a go and he hits it over the goal!
