  • Real Madrid just had a decent away game. Marcelo was really awful today apart from his last tackle and Ramos looked very shaky at times. Kovacic is the perfect alternative for this Real Madrid side and I see him above James and Isco. If Morata continues to perform like this, he is going to be a great addition to this team. Casemiro is like a tank and his role is very crucial to Real Madrid's dynamic. I love players like Carvajal who play very passionately and fight for every ball. His attitude is just exemplary and I see him as a future Real Madrid captain.

  • Sociedad the worst team i hav seen in a while

  • Anoeta maybe a tough gound for that "team" who never won since 2012, but not for Real Madrid

  • Concha LOL what a name

  • lol dont be suprised if Real dont win here..

  • @ksaviauk sorry no surprises today

  • @ksaviauk ha

  • @NuchalLine @Beastador. Don't worry guys the only reason you guys have received dislikes is becoz you been attacked by EPL fan girls. Believe me these ladies are even worse than 50 shades of Grey or Twilght fangirls. Just fangirls of these series they watch their favourite series while M@$%%rb@t!%% on their tv set with their boyfriends. They are living the dream. Comeon fangirls attack me now with you downvotes and dislikes all you like. I'm not troll becoz of idiots like these I feel the need to troll. You bunch of morons. Seriously morons get life. It look like these guys have insulted you personally. Yeah they correct in saying La Liga is the best based on facts. Most Europa and Champions League than any other. Plus number ranked in UEFA co-efficient. So go ahead downvote me.

  • @Ffaris you are so weird

  • God I have no clue why is Zizou so against James Rodriguez... I mean this guy was bit loose canon all of that happened when he was injured. For the time being this guy is reformed... A god man-management requires to reward good behavior and punish bad ones. Plus he is match winner. San Sebestian is not easy place to go to. It requires match winners like James and Isco(God why is not given enough playing time-even on wings this guy is willing to track on the other hand former left-back Bale offer virtually no tracking back). Hopefully all of the issues would sorted out. This season could making of Zizou. He could either be De Matteo or Guardiola of Real Madrid.

  • @Ffaris Zidane already favours Asensio over James. I think James should leave for the sake of his career

  • @Ffaris Because hes not better than player who we sell after james coming (Di Maria)

  • @Ffaris maybe becouse James and Isco dont fit into the system.. Casemiro balances the squad and James and Isco best place isnt cm maybe

  • @ksaviauk yeah they could play in place of ronaldo and bale when they are not rested. Plus if I remeber correctly Isco played really on the right wing in place of bale when he was having some sort of slum. It was during ancelloti era.

  • Madrid will win at all cost, this season is ours. Zidane will prove to the world once again

  • Zidane can win us the league

  • Madrid have to win

  • Best league commences.

  • San Sebastian has proved to be a tough place to win for the la liga giants. Real Madrid is missing key players in this game but they still got great players to win here.

  • The stars of world football are back because the best league in the world is back.

  • Why is Ronaldo not on the La Liga home page yet they put a silly looking blonde Messi

  • @Peter_Griffin silly league it is

  • @Peter_Griffin they clearly bias

  • Anoeta is tough place. Sociedad can easly win it with Illaramendi or Rulli motm

  • Oh Madrid and our useless goal keeper called Casilla

  • @jefferee we should buy yann sommer

  • morata asensio isco

  • Chop Ronaldo Chop

  • @glenbayern he will miss

  • @ksaviauk no

  • @NuchalLine what do you mean "no" Ronaldo will miss this game
