A Real Madrid team comprised of past players and legends have defeated their Bayern Munich counterparts 8-3 in a charity match.
Played at the Santiago Bernabeu in front of over 70,000 spectators on Sunday evening, the Corazon Classic Match was intended to raise funds to develop schools in Africa through the Real Madrid foundation and was spectacular to watch as there were 11 goals.
Former Madrid and Bayern players and footballing legends such as Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane, Fernando Redondo, Emilio Butragueno, Willy Sagnol and Roy Makaay all featured in the game.
Ruben de la Red, who was forced to quit playing professionally last year at the age of just 25 because of a heart condition, opened the scoring after just 11 minutes, and five minutes later Butragueno made it 2-0 to Madrid.
Redondo made it 3-0 on 40 minutes, but Paulo Sergio reduced the deficit for Bayern just a minute before the half-time interval.
After the break, Alfonso Perez made it 4-1 to Madrid only for Niko Kovac to score for the German giants. An own goal from Robert Kovac saw the Spanish powerhouse go 5-2 up and although Sergio made it 5-3 just moments later, Niko Kovac netted an own goal to help Madrid increase their lead to 6-3.
Late goals from Fernando Sanz and Davor Suker saw Madrid round up a comprehensive 8-3 victory in front of their own supporters.
