I hope i can see the fullgame soon
@NuchalLine , www . gibol . tv
great game for neutrals.
Real Madrid drawing a game they should've lost, total shocker. Ronaldo playing well against a good side is a genuine shock though, too bad he will get a 3-game ban for kicking one of the most diminutive players on the pitch. My guess is he won't do the same against Huth if Real happen to meet Leciester in the tournament. I happen to remember Madridistas claiming Navas was the best keeper in the world after having a good first 8 or so games last season and how they don't need De Gea. Well, De Gea hasn't flapped as much in the last 5 seasons as Navas did tonight. You definitely need David on this evidence. Also, it's amazing how often Ramos is out of position. You want him in the team for the match-(saving/winning) goals from set-plays but you most definitely don't need him as a CB. Given the fact James has declined since the 2014 world cup & Kovacic has hardly set La Liga on fire, why not have Sergio in front of the defence in a 4-1-2-2w-1 formation where he can play as a quasi-sweeper?
@SteveHyland so de gea didn't flapped euros? his errors was the cause La Roja exited the euros. His error against
De Gea is just under-sieged looked good by united bad defence.
Does De Gea Bad Performance for La Roja make him bad goal keeper heck no. He is still great so is Navas. It is not guys whoscored.com who think Navas is a great gk. It was people of madrid themselves who voted that they desired Navas to stay instead of purchasing De Gea. Friendly advice watch real games more. James didn't receded in fact as of right he is real best player. Saved their hiney countless time in La Liga this season. Kovacic is competing against world best mid fielders no doubt about it. Toni Kross and Luka Modric. Only prime Xavi and Iniesta combo could have competed with that. So Kovacic chances could have came against two of these were rested.
@SteveHyland dortmund was much superior. Dont believe? Look at the overal ratings.
@SteveHyland I'm guessing this is the only game where you have seen Keylor Navas in action in a long time. About DDG, better re-do your research, mate. Not that I wish to support Ronaldo for his actions, but Navas took a foot in his chest in the last minutes, how come you didn't see that?
Based on what should have Real lost? Again, xG maps or something would aid with your "research"
@SteveHyland Agreed. BvB were the better team, could have scored a lot more if they had converted their chances.
Time to uefalona fans to go away from this page, its a draw we are not even lose
@Vellicahearst Also, for a guy who has 70% negativ votes on his comments you are not really the person to listen to ...
@neumi17 Well... you have 90 % unvoted mate
@Vellicahearst Mhm, thought about that there could be also Dortmund fans on this page writing ? Just an idea ...
I believe castro must have at least a 7.5 for this match
he was in every inch in the field
gotze 6.8 yes but castro !!! no
how does james get even a 6.0, he gave the ball just about every single time he touched it and navas was so scared, he better gets his act together or he will not last in madrid. yes he had couple nice saves but he look shaking even when he saved it. real needs explosive players, i said it this summer, even w player who tend to have high passing % they could not keep the ball. everyone was loosing it w ease and ramos is a disgrace how dirty he plays and he wears the captain armband.
Please UEFA, give Ronaldo a red card after the match for this ....pic.twitter.com/wK0FAYhDKn
@neumi17 And try to type your comment again without crying
@Vellicahearst As far as I remember is Ronaldo the only one who cries a lot. Why don`t you tell him that when he was whining about his disallowed goal even though he was 20 meter off side....
@neumi17 Well you meant when Cristiano lift the trophy with portugal he cries a lot?
@neumi17 Yes mate, just tell uefalona to report Cr
@neumi17 I agree. That is absolutely disgraceful.
honestly if dortmund and madrid swap tactics madrid would be destroying dortmund.madrid manage to make it a draw through the players quality.instead of pushing for a bigger advantage,they decided to concede possession and thus concede goals
@loli- There was no conceding possession, Dortmund were controlling the game and Madrid couldn't get out of their half with the ball in the first half. Should've been 5-1 at HT but Dortmund as is fairly typical with them, failed to capitalise on their dominance. The only times I've seen Real genuinely concede possession (as opposed to be controlled by the opposition) were against Barcelona in the Mourinho/Pep days. It was a valid and astute tactic then but Real should be dictating play against Dortmund.
@loli how about swapping players too !!
@loli Sorry but you have no clue. Dortmund could have scored 3 or 4 goals in the first half alone. Their attack is just brutal but they lack in defence. Plus Real doesn`t have dribbler like Dembele, Mor or Pulisic. Because of the weaker phase of Dortmund in the middle of the second half the draw is deserved. Otherwise it would have been a Dortmund victory as usual ...
@loli Real can't play the way BVB plays, and they got lucky thanks to Navas
@Yman , lucky thanks to Navas ?
1 :Navas did his job, when a player does his job perfectly, we dont call it a luck.
2 :You saw only Dortmund chances because you wanted them to win, if you were a neutral fan you would realise the result was fair,
good luck against Gladbach tomorrow.
@Tms Are you a neutral fan ? If you didn`t see far more chances from Dortmund in the first half it is because you didn`t want Real to lose. They didn`t because Dortmund had a bad period in between the 60th and 75th min. Yes, Madrid had chances too, especially in that time. In the end the draw was fair but nobody could have complained if Dortmund had won, Ronaldo had received a red card and Dortmund would have given a free kick near the penalty area ...
@neumi17 ...for clear hand ball.
@Yman It's about the resources that each team has. Real's defense and Midfield are among the very best in the world individually and collectively but their forwards can't gel into the team. I see Real's defense and midfield very united but their forwards apart from Bale don't play as a unit. They don't participate in defensive duties and they lack movements across the field.
For me it was clear own goal by Varane, not Auba's goal
@radaner Usually its the goal of the player who touches the balllast before it crosses the line. And that was Aubameyang ...
Danilo and Kroos were really good. Varane had a great game too. He contained Aubameyang. James had a couple of poor first touches. Gonzalo Castro was the real threat from Dortmond today.
@CirdomAkul James had a couple poor touches...?? Ronaldo was Lazy....?? were you watching the same match.....the plan from zidane was to sit back and play on counter given the attacking mindset of Dortmund players ronaldo, benzema all played there part...it worked...
James had a really bad game....poor touches...and also couple of bad ball on the counter....Ronaldo played one of the best match of this season...agreed Benzema was not up to the mark...Had Zidane brought in Morata a little earlier we could have seen couple more chances from Madrid...!!
All in all a good game and a good test for Madrid and a good result....!!!
Very few teams are as deadly as Dortmund....if you are following them this season....!!!
@parth_cr7 This was Ronaldo's best game of this season. Ronaldo and Benzema has to do more defensive duties. All the players have to defend. Defense and midfield play as a unit but the attacking players doesn't involve enough in the game. The result is good but bear in mind that Dortmond's defense is poor this season.
Mhm, only a draw. A bit disappointing for Dortmund. They got the equalizer but should have made more of the game. Well, in the end deserved draw...
If only Dortmond's defense were as good as their other departments, they can win against any team. There is simply too much space in front of Real Madrid's defense. Real Madrid can play 4-3-3 in the absence of Casemiro but there has to a lot of sacrifices from the players. The players had a great attitude but Benzema and Ronaldo were too lazy in my opinion. Real could have scored the third goal had they pushed but their attacking players were too lazy. Morata should have been instituted in way earlier. Real Madrid's first goal was one of the best counter attacking goals I've ever seen. That pass from Modric was phenomenal to start the counterattack.
And there it is... Saw it coming
Real is getting stronger, don't know why Dortmund let's that happen, it's not like Madrid is pressing a lot, Dortmund just lost the flow.
Rough way for Navas to come back from injury.
The last ball was a good save by Navas! The easy ball he let's in and the very difficult one he is able to save, also strange...
Strange, it's still 1-1. Should be 2-1 and could be 3-1
Instant Yellow? wtf
Dortmund don't have any CB left.
Why is Navas using fists all the time? I feel like 99% of goalkeepers in LaLiga would catch that without any trouble.
@kuba2903 His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy (if u know what i mean)
There's vomit on his sweater already, Mom's Spaghetti!
@kuba2903 He has been out for 5 months. He lacks confidence.
what an own goal
A german goalkeeper would have stopped that ball with one hand...
Wow Dortmund doesn't sense danger at all.
handball 100% penalty
@taktiko Although it was clear handball it was outside of the box.
@felipe9525 But freekick at the penalty area isn't bad either...
@felipe9525 yea you are maybe right
Typical Real, clear hand ball and no call..
Its gonna be a ping-pong game..LOL
@parth_cr7 No, it's gonna be going mostly in direction of Navas. But that's normal...
@neumi17 and CR7 rises...he is looking sharp today
@parth_cr7 Is he? I think the goal was his first contact, how do you know?
@neumi17 the thing that matters is how much you make of that....he is making some good runs and look at his positioning...in a game of 31 mins which is dominated by Dortmund...
A tough night on the cards here for Madrid today.....a DRAW will be Victory for us....Hala Madrid!!!!
can be ice hockey score here like 3-5 or 3-3 :)
real 4-3-3 without casemiro and with James = too much attack = Dortmund win
Oh it is great match but i would opt Mor instead of Pulsic more exciting player and we read to go.
The amount of people voting for Dortmund is too damn high
come on @glenbayern at uefa cl we should drop our animosity towards bvb. that is a reasonable thing to do. I'm myself am BVB fan and but will always be sympathetic towards be that in CL or Bundesliga becoz I know your team is greatly responsible for our league Bundesliga as second best league after la liga in uefa co-efficient.
@glenbayern Why too high? A win for Dortmund is the most realistic outcome, no?
@neumi17 dude didn't know you are starting to like BVB too.
@Ffaris Has nothing to do with like or dislike, that's not how I base my predictions on. Just out of the history alone I would have said victory for Dortmund. Madrid loses most of the times in Germany, for decades! But since Dortmund is in especially good shape now and Real isn't, it's very obvious to expect a a win for Dortmund. But yes, I like the way they play a lot...
This promises to be a smashing encounter! Dortmund will definitely fancy their chances as they can't stop scoring at the moment. Real Madrid's struggles are so obvious this season and Dortmund are just the team to exploit it. Dortmund win won't be a surprise with a less likelihood of a draw. I really can't see Real Madrid winning the game with current form. Both teams to score.
Dortmund 2 - 1 Madrid ( x - 1 )
It will be real's match..... RM 2-0 BVB
@Ranjanabhijeet Any particular reason why?
Dortmund with a comfortable win, but closer in the return leg at the Bernabeu
I fancy Dortmund winning 3-1 here.
BTTS / 2-2
BVB to win? It's hard but Real seems a bit messy right now, defensively is weak, Ronaldo is playing not at his best, Casemiro misses the match and his power+stamina is really important on matches like this. Anyway, BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE is MY PICK.
Never underestimate Real when they are the current holders of the Cup. I think both teams will score and probably a draw, 1-1 or 2-2. Real are not a walk and Dortmund's current form cannot be denied but their form doesnt come from big games therefore would count little against Real.
@albgunn Dortmund has always won against Real Madrid, of their last 20 games in Dortmund or Munich they could only win 3 and draw 2. Also, why is it important that they are the current holders of the trophy? Does this make them better in any way? No, rather the opposite, usually the drive to defend it is not as strong as to win it after a long time. And that is also the reason why no team could EVER defend their title. 3-1 Dortmund...
The ratings say it all...
Borussia to win 2-1.
I don't expect RM to win this one. The team is super exhusted and to be honest if I'm Zidane, I would keep a deep line, park the bus, and play Morata counter attack.
RM are tired and aren't fit yet after many injuries.
I think that Zidane is not looking for other than the La Liga title now, and looking to refresh the team with young players.
The Germans are usually impressive during the first half of the season.
@Aziz89 yeah but this is RM, who just seem to win in stupid circumstances. Of course I hope not though.
If Real Madrid plays 4-3-3 in this one, they are going to get thrashed. I hope Varane plays as Aubameyang is super fast otherwise Pepe and Ramos are no match for his explosive speed. For me, only Messi was a better player than Dembele at this age. He is amazing and there is some kind of unique maturity to his game at this age. Gonzalo Castro is a great player and I consider him among the very best. Thomas Tuchel has done an outstanding job and he deserves a lot of credit for what a brilliant coach he is. Tuchel's game plan for this game will be crucial. Dortmond's defense aren't strong enough to cope with Real Madrid's attack and I'm sure Tuchel is going to try to neutralize Real Madrid's midfield just like what Sporting CP did in the Bernabeu.
@CirdomAkul Well thought through! Thumbs up for your analysis...
Dortmund cant beat liverpool so how can they beat madrid?
@loli real Madrid can't beat Las balmas so how can they beat Dortmund?
Hopefully this will be an entertaining game with lots of goals. Dortmund is in great shape but Real Madrid should always be respected so it's not easy to predict which way this game will go.
Real Madrid has a strong midfield, they will play good touches and passes but will find it difficult to control the game often, B Dortmund will strongly fights back hard which will result in play around madrid defense zone, and if Dortmund will press play for quite long time they will creates shots on targets that may result a goal (s).
I will go for 3-1 Dortmund got it.
Real Madrid has no discipline in attack and they have no clear tactics to penetrate the opponent's defense. All they do is that they use the flank to cross or use set pieces to score goals. When Marcelo (left-back) is their best player in dribbling, they seriously have to assess this situation. Any result can happen in this one. I'm expecting a 3-1 for Dortmond.
Cristiano had 0 dribbles vs Las Palmas.. looks out of form
@ksaviauk Ronaldo has never any dribbles ! He hasn't been in the top 150 in dribbling for years and averages one dribble per game! But that doesn't matter, because Ronaldo never scores after dribbles but after passes or flanks.
Dortmund is back. Great form, great squad. 2-1/3-1 (fc leeds fan)
Whoever voted 4-1 for madrid must be nuts ... :-). :-)
@neumi17 Whoever uefalona fans commented on Real Madrid site must be obsessed ... :-) :-)
I guess that was Ronaldo's mama. And, yes, she is nuts. ;)
@Ciporespect mama at all cost
Real was Götzes last game for Dortmund in 2013. First game for him in CL for Dortmund, Real ...
Not a easy match but Madrid will win 1-2.......Ronaldo 2x
Most interesting match in group stage.Dortmund 2-1
