Meet the Next Champions League Darlings

Sheriff Shocks Real Madrid (2-1) for Historic Champions League Upset

The next Champions League darlings have emerged! On a day where Lionel Messi scored his first goal in a PSG uniform, he was upstaged by the biggest upset in more than three years of Champions League play. The team known as Sheriff (FC Sheriff Tiraspol) became the first Moldovan side to ever reach the UCL group stage, and they just did the unthinkable. The 27-1 underdogs stunned Real Madrid (2-1) thanks to Sebastien Thill’s 89th-minute wonder strike from outside the 18. Real Madrid outshot Sheriff 31-4 and out-possessed them 76-24, but the final scoreline is all that matters. Sheriff is now 2-0 in their first Champions League appearance, and they sit atop the standings in Group D.
