Stephan-El-Shaarawy-inaction-141230AI300Serie A giants AC Milan ‘ended’ Real Madrid’s 22 match winning streak on Tuesday as striker Stephan El Shaarawy scored twice in a 4-2 friendly win in Dubai.

Real coach Carlo Ancelotti left star players Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez out of his starting line-up but Cristiano Ronaldo began the match and scored a first half goal in vain.

The European champions had won 22 matches in all competitions coming into the clash although Tuesday’s match was classified as a friendly and not an official fixture.

Real, won the World Club Cup on Sunday with a 2-0 win over Argentine club San Lorenzo, but El Shaarawy did the damage for the Italians with goals either side of halftime while Frenchman Jeremy Menez and Giampaolo Pazzini were also on target.
