(Video) Galatasaray mesmerise Real Madrid with Tiki-Taka passing

Galatasaray were defeated 2-1 by Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabeu Cup last Tuesday.

The Lions did however, put on a valiant display and caused a stir on social media with some of their impressive passing moves. Including one in which six Galatasaray players touched the ball in a fluid passing move which ended with a pinpoint cross into the six-yard box which was blasted over the bar – had it gone it would have been an incredible team goal.

Former Real Madrid youth player Jose Rodriguez started for Galatasaray as did ex-Galactico Wesley Sneijder who scored the Lions goal and earned a standing ovation from the home crowd.

Galatasaray could end up facing Real in the Champions League group stages this season as they booked a place in the group stages for the fourth consecutive season.

The Lions won the league title for a record 20th time last season and earned the right to wear a fourth star on their crest.
