Real Madrid lead 2-0 at half time.
There is an air of inevitability to the proceedings so far. Galatasaray actually playing quite well, creating chances but not coverting them. Drogba does well to turn his marker but baloons the shot, Eboue does well to get into a position but shoots straight at the keeper...
...at the other end, GS gift RM two soft goals, Eboue letting C-Ron break away from him for the first and for the second a double howler, the somewhat dimunitive defence first failing to clear a tame cross and then leaving Benezema unmarked for a soft tap in.
Just to add to the inevitable misfortune, Benzema should have had a red card before he scored for a high challenge and GS were denied a clear penalty when Khadeira appeared to have velcro hands in the box. Typical GS in Europe stuff, really.
On the first half balance of play we looked "good" for a goal but Terim has started the second half by taking off the admittedly disappointing Sneijder for Gokhan Zan, a defender, so either it's a blatant attempt at limiting the damage to 2-0 or some kind of tactical masterstroke which I will be raving about on here at full time.
