Perfect game.......only problem is that we were playing vs Willy on steroids so didn't score more
Ronaldo admitting his below par performance and apologising to the fans at the end when he scored Proud
Illaramendi had a fabulous game, Di Maria and Morata also stood out. Both marcelo and Carvajal showed why they are so much better than Arbeloa and Coentrao by far... Jese and Morata deserve to play more than lazy french bum
only bad player or to be precise non-contributing player on pitch was sami khedira..him & arbeloa need to go.
Carvajal is such an beauty , no need of arbeloa anymore !
Sell him without second thoughts.
We almost won every battle on the field but couldnt avail it to the fullest given our lack of sharpness in final third , bad luck & indelible performance by la liga's arguably best keeper from last year..
Khedira is slowing us down a bit , hope he gets agile with his passing , carvajal brings spark to the gameplay with shatp crosses , give it all competant defending & threatning runs down the flank terrorizing opposition alongwid marcy
The lad knows what it means to wear madrid shirt and why not?! Hez from castilla
Ronaldo was apologetic but comeon dude you gave your best , willy's performance can devour any players confidence but you finally beat him with penalty but it was too harsh on willy's efforts tbh
When angel is on form , few players can shunt him , workrate , crosses ,splitting passes are well executed with even eye for a goal ,a complete diff angel from one we saw last year who was bewildered..
Offside trap evading , final third sharpness and isco form is to be redeemed
He made absolutely tremendous, impossible saves, haven't seen better goalkeeping performance this season.
atleast 6-7 goals madrid would have scared if willy wasnt in beast mode..great play by madrid..just beautiful..
he made 13 saves , he is human afterall , it wont be prejudiced to say he saved malaga from downright humiliation
another min 90 pen for ronaldo
Willy had a terrific game, but he did make an error on the first goal.
hats off to willy cabellero
Carvajal is the secret playmaker of Real
Willy is on beast mode..great saves
lets hope I was wrong with prediction ... but it doesnt look good at all. we ll see.. 45 minutes more
Willy Cabellero is on fire ..possibly saved 2-3 goals .Sabella should keep an eye
i think real madrid will win this by atleast 3 goals margin
Real Madrid XI: D.Lopez, Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Marcelo, Khedira, Illarramendi, Di Maria, Isco, Cristiano Ronaldo, Morata #HalaMadrid
Morata is starting the game , its official .. finally some sense in carlo's head by benching lazy frenchman
Real 5-1 Malaga
Real will best them but what margin? thats a question , as they are facing juve next up they should win by 3-4 goals vs malaga to have some chance against juve
i predict 4-1
i dont think gareth bale will start , he might come as a sub , defense has been awful and lopez has been error prone so it only makes sense that they will concede as usual , real madrid 2-1 malaga
Unless they're certain Bale is close to full fitness, I don't think they should risk it...especially against Malaga.
gareth bale will get some minutes here , last match arbeloa , lopez and coentrao were pathetic , carlo should play the alternatives if he wants to save his ass..also morata scored vs hungary (the only goal) he deserves to start ..
real madrid 3-0 malaga if best team is played else we might end up losing this fixture
well said bro , completely agree...Mourinho is very overrated manager
We should win this game to boost our confidence , Real Madrid 3-1 Malaga
great comments , absolutely agree ! Carlo doesnt know his best XI and cant focus on single tactic thats why we are playing bad! Yes Mourinho is overrated fella , when team knew about it he was loathed by everyone , also he considered himself bigger than the club and has to be shown door
Dude you cant trust your team or what? have some faith , its not carlo alone , zizou is also there and bale will be back too
Each era has their mark , you cant say this era was weaker than that ! Thats naive given the fact an old nesta humbled prolific messi everytime! You cant say maradona & pele faced weaker teams so they arent great ! What del bosque , heynckes & munoz have achieved is unparellel and to top that don santiago bernabeu..
Casillas was great vs ireland , finnland,chelsea , copenhagen and georgia ! He is in the vibe , he needs chance & he will dethrone lopez from liga spot..
Carlo doesnt know his best xi nor best formation so we are struggling right now
Dude ,Mourinho is a good manager who prefers taking risk as well has good tactical acumen but he isnt as great as heis potrayed which makes him overrated..lets not forget the managers who managed madrid for 3 years , mou holds a bottom spot ..coming to 2nd season under mou i can say our team looked very lethal counter-attackin outfit but defense issues still porous , we scored 2 goals in first half but mou cooled it in second resultant bayern scored a goal back , in same match iker saved 3 penalties ! In 2nd season we beat barca fair n square at camp nou but in 3rd season we were predictable outfit with antiquated tactics,cringeworthy defense resultant we struggled almost most away games against below midtable teams with same set piece issue! And we won 2 against Roura not tito , roura is a scoutnot a coach ,not a colossal achievement , as well killed the cliche that barca can work without coach..
Mou failed to achieve decima which was priority !
and I wish to apologize to all Madridistas for such comments, but that is the way I see the things at the moment.
my prediction for Saturday versus Malaga is, we can be lucky if score 1 -1 ..and it will be like that most probably.
and now, without Mourinho, at camp nou next week, they will slaughter us with 5 -0 again.
honestly, we cannot deny all the greatness of JM.
no matter which team we talk about, nor what competition.
And just to add.. with JM in charge, in the last 5 games versus barcelona, we did not lose a single one. They trashed us with 5 - 0, when he just arrived, but the things then went the other way around ;)
He was brought to the Bernabeu in order to knock down barcelona from the top of Primera and he made it in such great style.
At the times of Munoz, or DelBosque, there was no super-strong catalan side standing as oponent. Neither in Primera nor within Champ League.
Despite all the quality names they had back then!
Yes, I agreee that Cassilas is great, but lately he is not having his best time and it was more than obvious.
Right now, Real Madrid team look like some boring mid-table italian side, eg.Udinese or sth like that... unfortunately
Best ever result?! Ever heard of miguel munoz , del bosque & heynckes?!
You certainly have no idea what you talking..Pellegrini almost secured 100 pts with not so great squad mourinho had , mou was schooled by klopp , winning against apoel & galatasaray to reach semis as well after nani controversy vs united with a top quality squad isnt a magnificient achievement ,many coaches can do it if they had such high quality squad with every damn thing @your disposal.
That being said mourinho is most overrated manager who pulls out gimmicks and fools people with high octane rash talk ,blames others for his failure to avoid spotlight..he fucking couldnt correct our set piece problem for a year! That being said did you know how awful our defense was under mou?! Why single out iker*! He has 4 clean sheets before getting injured...lopez is starting becoz he started preps b4 iker as he was on confeds leave..if carlo plays morata ,casillas ,marcelo , illara-luka combo we will win.
I have been following Real since the times of Hugo Sanchez, Gordillo, Gallego, Butire etc.
Let's be honest, the team under JMourinho scored the best ever results, in te entire club's history!
You can like him or hate him, this is the fact.
However, Ancelotti was not not a god choice at all, and Khedira was correct- everyone is playing his own game now, there is no team structure at all.
Luckily, there is still Cristiano, but he solo cannot make it every time.
Cassilas has to sit on the bench, and Muorinho saw it correctly.
It was strong and good decision to bring in Lopez, since then no more stupid goals after every single free kick or corner.
Honestly, Real cannot do any better versus Malaga, than it was done in the last game of the current season...
This ship is sinking, and Ancelotti is not captain saviour, not even close to it.
Casillas , Marcelo & Carvajal should start this game...
I believe Real Madrid can evolve into the 4-2-2-2 formation.
--------------Lopez/Casillas-------------- (I would give Casillas the start based on recent performances)
Carvajal ---- Varane ---- Ramos ---- Marcelo
--------- Modric -------- Khedira --------- (Xabi coming during second half if ready/if not then Illara)
Di Maria ------------------------- Ronaldo (Isco/Bale)
---------- Morata ----- Benzema ---------- (Jese Rodriguez replaces whoever underperforms after 60-70 min)
I understand a lot of frustration towards Benzema, but since he likes to drop back in the "10 position" maybe that will give Morata to score while Benzema playing the playmaker role (4-2-2-1-1) - Morata is very close to exploding into a furious stricker. I would also want Isco to play a major role in this game, if indeed it is a 4-3-3, then Isco should start in the center of the park.
Although a lot of criticisms has been targeted towards Real Madrid, they are always a delight to watch -
Real Madrid 3-1 Malaga
Morata should start upfront
Xabi & Illara in midfield
Carvajal & Marcelo as full-backs
Casillas @ back
Ancellotti please know what your best XI is , Casillas ,Morata & Carvajal are clearly better than Benzema , Arbeloa & Lopez..
Malaga lost to osasuna @ home , surprisingly osasuna dominated them , to elaborate 0-1 is to put it midly, osasuna could have scored 3 goals against sloppy malaga back-line
i predict 4-1 to real madrid
2-1, I sure
this should be a great game , malaga side are not to be taken lightly especially under schuster , if lopez plays they are bound to score , i hope carlo starts iker to fortify the pororus defense..hoping for a great contest
