Real Madrid after earlier dominance found themselves a goal down on the 25th minute after Jasurbek Yakhshiboev leaped the highest to head in a precise cross from Cristiano.
Real Madrid continued and pressed for the equalizer but they were denied by the solid defense of Sheriff shielded by the 21- year old Edmund Addo.
On the 65th minute, a strong challenge from Addo on Vinicius Junior fetched Madrid a penalty after VAR called for a review of the foul in the box. The skipper Karim Benzema stepped up and score for a parity.
The game was close to a drawn end but Sebastien Thill snatched a victory for Tiraspol with a stunning final-minute strike.
Here are the stats of Addo after the game:
• 90 minutes played
• 92.3% passing accuracy
• 25 touches
• 4 ground duels won
• 2/2 long balls completed
• 2 fouls won
• 2 tackles won
• 2 interceptions
• 1 clearance
The victory leaves minnows Sheriff Tiraspol top of the group D with 6 points after two games.
Another 21- year old midfielder Kamal Sowah lasted for 68 minutes for Club Brugge in their 2:1 away victory over RB Leipzig
