A classic illustration of the title can be found in the match between Lyon and Real Madrid in the champions league.
What happened was that despite Real Madrid having bought world class players for exorbitant amount of money, they were ousted from the champions league by a not so much feared opponent.
Thus the dream of Real Madrid playing the final at their home Bernabéu was scuppered by visitors Lyon. As for the score line Real came home trailing 1-0 to Lyon. Cristiano Ronaldo had given the home team the perfect start as they looked to overturn a 1-0 first-leg deficit, cancelling that out inside six minutes.However, Lyon emerged for the second half transformed and passed up several presentable openings to level on the night.In the 75th minute Pjanić made no mistake, rounding off an incisive move with a thumping finish and Madrid could find no reply.
