BERLIN (AP) — Dani Ceballos scored late for Real Madrid to beat Union Berlin 3-2 and complete a perfect Champions League group stage on Tuesday.
Ceballos grabbed the winner in the 89th minute, four minutes after Union substitute Alex Král equalized and kept alive Union’s hopes of clinching a Europa League place. The German team had needed a win and a favor from Napoli against Braga in the other group game to clinch a Europa League spot as the third-place finisher in the group.
Instead, Madrid finished Group C with six wins from six matches. Madrid achieved this feat for the third time after 2011 and 2014.
