Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo (L) controls the ball as AC Milan’s Stephan El-Shaarawy defends during their world club friendly football match in Dubai on December 30, 2014

Dubai (AFP) – Serie 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 half-time while Frenchman Jeremy Menez and Giampaolo Pazzini were also on target.
