Playing against Real Madrid is one of the biggest fixtures for any new entrant to European Football. Union Berlin held the Los Blancos until the latter stages before surrendering it.
It was a historic moment for the Berlin-based club as they made a grand entry to UCL.
Union will host their first UEFA Champions League game on Tuesday evening as Sporting Braga visits the Olympiastadion.
Lately, the team has struggled to keep up a healthy competition, losing five consecutive games in all competitions.
Braga’s resurgence appears to have paid off after sealing qualification for the UCL this season. The Archbishop, however, lost to Napoli narrowly in their first game of the campaign.
