They went on to played 17 matches unbeaten, which includes UCL Qualifiers, domestic league, and the magnificent victory against the 13 times European champions.
Despite conceding a goal against Carlo Ancelloti side, scored by Karim Benzema from Spot kick, Sheriff Tiraspol goalkeeper was the hero of the match with an incredible 10 shots saves.
The players were full of joy and enthusiasm. If they keep on with such momentum, they are very likely to advance from the Group stage in the midst of other big clubs.
