Real Madrid has won the third game in the Champions League groups, as it defeated Sporting Braga on the road with a close score of 1-2.

Carlo Ancelotti started in the offensive department with the Brazilian duo Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo, but the Italian coach had other plans.

Los Blancos’ chief of staff had thought to start with the Spanish striker Joselu, but he was not even seen on the bench.

All this happened because Joselu was poisoned and stayed in the hotel, not having the opportunity to even go to the stadium.

According to Cope, Joselu had a terrible night at the hotel after being poisoned and repeatedly vomiting.

However, the Spaniard’s condition is better and he will receive treatment in Madrid after Real’s return to the Spanish capital.

Rodrygo replaced Joselu in the starting line-up and managed to score in Los Blancos’ 1-2 win.
