It’s on a rare occasion that a player gets to score a brace at the Santiago Bernabeu, but when it happens, you have to celebrate it specially, and that’s what Super Eagles star, Emmanuel Dennis did after scoring twice in Club Brugge’s 2-2 draw with Real Madrid in the Uefa Champions League match on Tuesday evening.
The Nigerian international stunned the Santiago Bernabeu fans last night as Real Madrid had to come from behind to salvage a point.
His first came inside the opening ten minutes after he miscontrolled a Tercy Pau low cross, but it was enough to stir it past the wrong footed Thibaut Courtois in Madrid goal.
The 21-year-old scored his second moments later after rubbing the ball off Sergio Ramos in Real Madrid half before chipping over Courtois.
In celebrating his second goal of the evening, the Super Eagles star pulled out the famous “Cristiano Ronaldo Si Celebration” at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
Score twice at the Bernabeu. Celebrate like Ronaldo.

However, despite Dennis brace, it was not enough as Madrid rescued a point courtesy headers from Sergio Ramos and Casemiro.
Los Blancos now sits in the last position in Group A, five points adrift of Paris Saint Germain who defeated Galatasary away from home by a lone goal.
Club Brugge occupy the second position after taking two points from their first two matches, while Galatasary sits in the third position.
