This article will focus on the upcoming game Real Madrid vs Sheriff. FC Sheriff Tiraspol became the first Moldovan team to qualify for the group stages of the UEFA Champions League. After qualifying, they joined Inter Milan, Real Madrid, and Shakhtar Donetsk in Group D. With two consecutive victories against Shakhtar Donetsk and even Real Madrid, FC Sheriff is flying high. We are heading into matchday 3 and Sheriff has already stamped its authority with some great performances on the field.
