Koke makes Atleti spin , neutralise him Carlo , drop Xabi , play di maria in the middle
Playing Alonso,Modric and Kroos in midfield is not that good. You need at least one of the three to be able to run to the opposition, such as DiMaria or Isco. Jamez cant play wide, he needs to play behind Benzema, if he is to play.
Real Madrid should not sell Di Maria. It was far too obvious that in the 13 mins he played he is an important player.
Madrid should start like this in Calderon
@Turan James can't play wide? He's been playing wide all his life, at Porto and for the majority of the CONMEBOL qualifiers he played on the left of Pekerman's 4-2-2-2. A little research goes a long way.
@jnsbstn Real Madrid is not Porto nor Colombia. If you watched the mins he played in the friendlies and in the game vs Sevilla and Atletico...from wide positions he is not effective. At best he cuts inside and crosses to the far post. The way Real Madrid play, you need a fast winger that can run and dribble past opponents with pace. That is Ronaldo and Bale! and Di Maria aswell. For James to be able to play wide the whole way the team plays needs to change, which would not be ideal imo. He is most suited to play like he did in the Sevilla game, behind Benzema and roaming to find space to create chances. Also if one watched the games, he commits lots of errors and doesnt have the stability and understanding to play in a less advanced position, say the role of DiMaria from last year. He cant defend like DiMaria, he cant pass like DiMaria and he will need time to adapt anyway. Personally i think he should just play as a 10 rather then box to box or winger or false 9 etc.
Real Madrid should avoid selling Di Maria at any cost.
Clear hand ball.
I can not believe the ref did not whistle.
Clear penalty for Real.
athletico's players are like butchers
@kedican Plus, football is a tough sport for real men, isn't it?
Football is a manly sport. right. But it des not mean you are allowed to do every disgraceful action. Atleti is a dirty team.
@hindy Yes, Mandžukic was a real man, even Ronaldo was more man 5 years ago.
There is a club called Athletico? I didn't know, in which league do they play?
Di Maria does not deserve to be on the bench.
Koke is a master of a corner kick !
Where is the penalty???
Toni Kroos is the best player on the pitch at the moment.
@AndreyNosati He has a career high of 5 ! dribbles in that game ! Of course he gets the best rating ...
spent 80M in on player, and cant beat the team that spend 80M in 5 players? -_- I predict this match will end 1-0 for Atletico.
@AIbaruz atletico spend the most in liga history on a keeper n they already want to sell him.
@AIbaruz Oh, and now look who scored.
@AIbaruz Adding 10-15M players wouldn't really improve the squad. If you got money, why not invest it :) Now make sure you get back to bed before your parents find out you are up this late.
@Exti You trully misunderstoop me, mate. I am not praising Atletico for their signing, because none of them expect for Mandzuki, are quality players.
@AIbaruz You're clueless stop talking.
This comment has been deleted.
The way I see it, Jese is the heir to Ronaldo, James is the heir to Di Maria, Irramendi is the heir to Alonso, Kroos is the heir to Modric, and Morata is the heir to Benzema. Real Madrid's gonna want Bale to be their next superstar, and Ronaldo'll be gone in 2-3 years because Real Madrid rarely keeps aging players
@madridistagunner really? How old is iker n he still there even tho he isnt good, xabi n pepe are older too.. funny how people make comments wout knowing the facts
holy fuck, did you just say that Casillas, WORLD CHAMPION and twice European Champion, isn't good? Two sub par seasons after being completely and utterly disrespected by the worst, lowest piece of shit manager football has ever seen (Mourinho) does not a bad goalkeeper make. Casillas is the best keeper in the world when confident & fit. This website is pretty cool, until you scroll down to the comments. Fuck's sake.
@madridistagunner Yeah, Morata doesn't play for Real anymore. He was sold to Juventus. James is a bit more offensive than di Maria and isn't as good at passing as the Argentinian. Kroos is a very good tactical pöayer, but Modric is a genius playmaker, which Kroos isn't.
@Capitano has anyone on this thread seen any of these players in action? Kroos not a playmaker? Di Maria better at passing than James? Are you high?
@Capitano Real have a buyback option
KROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOW DID YOU MISS THAT
Unbelievable miss from Toni Kroos. WTF
Real Madrid are just such a soulless club.
@Villa That Di Stefano memorial was full of soul. You seem to be a hater.
@Villa Are you ginger or what is your problem?
@Skrong well now he isn't
Also Siqueira should right now be right undressing to take a shower...
How is Siquiera still on the pitch?
Seems like Mandzukic might be just as much of a girlie like Costa.
Mandzukic is crazy man )))
If Atletico sign Schurrle they could be insanely good
@madridistagunner Still parking the bus.
James looks really shaky... twice he gave the ball away and didn't look like he knew how to pass normally
Well, CR7 seemed to hurt his back early in the first half. Maybe that's why.
James for CR7!?!?!? Gutsy decision.
Anyway, good to see that at least so far, both teams are playing football, not when Costa was busy being an idiot on the field.
And how isn't Gabi booked yet..
@Exti Catalan REF. Thats why.
Ramos appearing to be quite a liability at the moment.. making lots of mistakes especially with his passing.
Atlético have rebuilt a very good team after selling Luis & Costa to us I see them giving Real & Barca a run for their money this season again.
Hope Atlético beat Real.
Atletico must take a revenge !!!! Mandzukic will score.
3-0 in sha' allah
total annihilation! 3-0 or 4-0.
I don't mind Isco to start at all. When he came in the CL final, Real dominated the game in every aspect.
Khedria is leaving , probably Arsenalor Chelsea for peanuts i.e 16 mE. Illara , Xabi ,Kroos & Modric cover up the position and he probably most awful but hushed under the carpet player at bernabeu during all his years. Dont get me wrong as much as he was terrible at bernabeu , he was equally impressive with german NT.
We thank him for his contribution but he just aint good enough or he just doesn't sacrifice enough as he does with National. Yes he is off the squad
buddi ateli got the game locked up madrid only one win all year with kroos and james
@JetFootball47 New players adaption can be small problem for atleti , they have just conceded one goal in 7 pre-season games. If they manage a draw here , they will shoot for the stars
@commandozap That one goal was pretty much Griezmann's own goal too. Atleti's defense is solid. But Real Madrid will step up for important matches as well. Should be great match.
@mikelee92 I hope they dont sell Godin , being a master himself he forces out brilliance from those around him. Agger the rumoured replacement isnt even half-good but you never know simeone can transform you within a year.
Griezmann , Mandzukic , Jimenez , Ansaldi , Siqueira , these new lads can change the game any moment.
Atletico will applaud and congratulate Real before the game for Super Cup victory.
If Di Maria plays this game , he isnt leaving , khedira is.
Possible starting XI
Carvajal Pepe Ramos Coentrao
Modric Kroos DiMaria/Jamez
Bale Benzema Ronaldo
If DiMaria starts, Real Madrid will have more pressure on their rivals.
@Turan Real Madrid 2-4 vs Atletico 1-2
Juanfran Godin Miranda Ansaldi/Siqueira
Koke M.Suarez Gabi R.Garcia
@Turan Hey man , wassup? Excited to see battle of new warriors.
@soul_snatcher yup, same here. Really happy we signed Kroos,Navas.Jamez has lots of potential aswell, i just hope we dont sell DiMaria. I would rather Khedira leaves.
I can't see a balanced game...Real Madrid got some reinforcements while Atlético Madrid lost some importante players like Diego Costa, Courtois...
Result = 3-0
Moya in goal, Simeone said so in an interview.
@kompostnik Isnt oblak injured?
@soul_snatcher Not anymore, he came back a few days ago.
Btw there is Bilbao v Napoli qualifier before this , so it will be fun to kick-off
Atleast 2 goals margin is needed to be on safe side.
Carva - Pepe - Ramos - Coentrao
Luka - Di Maria - Kroos
Bale - Benzema - Cr7
I also see Atleti win, but I don't think they'll win by 2 goals. 1-2 is a safe bet :)
@hindy hmm..anything can happen , simeone is pretty shrewd coach. He will sure rectify his mistakes and hit us hard. He has won at bernabeu before , but Atleti fans know when Iker plays they can forget about winning against madrid. The Saint guards us.
A very tight match.
Atletico has a very solid defence.
It is crucial for us not to concede the away goal in Bernabeu.
@Sinaj It will be interesting to see new players from both sides take it to the edge
@Sinaj So we can spank their a*ses hard in Calderon with a brutal attacking tactic. #HALAMADRID
