Real Madrid had already made sure of first place in their group before they kicked off against Copenhagen, but with their hosts in with a chance of taking the Europa League spot, Ancelotti put out a strong line up. Midway through the first half Modric opened the scoring with a shot in to the top corner of the net after Isco passed in from the right, and few minutes later Wiland did well to push a shot from Ronaldo round the post. With half time approaching Delaney got the ball in the net only for the referee to belatedly rule out the strike for hands (and probably for a foul on Casillas), but just three minutes after the restart Ronaldo made it two after Pepe's header fell kindly for him, a Champions League record ninth goal at the group stage. Ronaldo hit the post after that and Bale missed two sitters, and Ronaldo himself could have bettered his own record had he not fired a last minute penalty softly straight at the keeper.
