good win by madrid
Real Madrid should have scored more goals but the most important thing is the crucial victory
good work courtois
I'm a big Zidane fan but I don't think he will finish this season as the coach of this team. Playing Marcelo, Kroos and Hazard in the same flank is just too stupid for any coach. I don't care what he sees in training. There is no intensity, not each coverage without the ball in that flank. He keeps playing Marcelo. Some senior players are done and he fails to see that. For that sole reason, he won't get results.
@CirdomAkul i think this is a care-free season for real madrid. Zizou wears trainers with a casual suit on the touchline and he has had this relaxed demeanour right from his first press conference upon his return. gone are the tailored more professional looking suits. i think more is going on off the pitch than on it. all madrid need this season is at least fourth spot in la liga and all will be fine
@sampo 33%. He only got the marcelo part right. Hazard and kross should play
@k.1 I'm not saying he should bench all three. Hazard and Kroos have to play but not with Marcelo in the same flank.
hazard did a dribble amazing
This is Courtois's best game in the entire season so far
If Madrid take their chances, this could end in a thrashing game
Real is back!!!
Both teams will score
I expect Ramos and Benzema to step up and be spurred on by 1. the importance of getting a result -and- 2. the hostile environment
Zidane will be sacked if they lose.
@nexus747 No he won't. I bet my left nut
Kroos doubtful for playing. No problem, he's in a very bad shape.
Risky game but I can see Real win 0-2
if real gets to europa league i won't even be mad at this point
If Zidane is wise, he would play Areola instead of Courtois because Courtois right now is just a complete joke. This will be a tough and crucial match for Madrid knowing that by not winning, they're out of the UCL; not to mention their self-esteem and confidence right now. However, even taking into consideration the number of injured players right now, you can never doubt the king of kings and in this match they will emerge victorious 0-1.
@Elluso250 Zero chance of Courtois playing a UCL match, he was subbed off at half time in the last UCL match, that's how bad he is.
@GioMonaldo Courtois is a KING
@GioMonaldo Why 'zero chance'??
RM win 0-2. GS is awful in both attack and defence recently.
@ustat777 hey if u switch the RM and the GS in that statement, it still reads the same...
@offside Good one
Real to win comfortably.
like last time with brugge:-p
@CirdomAkul but how, thats the REAL question.
Only Adebayor can save Real Madrid!!!!
must win game.
@angelo44 Yeah you're right - Galata need to win this
if real madrid lose here i cant see them passing the group and my bet is bald fraud zidane getting sacked before new years day.
@stefanm Real forwards (other than Benzema) are just ridiculously ineffective this season. After 11 games Bale, Jovic, Isco had the combined effect (by goals and assists) of 1 point in La Liga and CL. Add Hazard and it's 4. Total joke. They are getting their chances. Team doesn't play defensively. They just suck. Not a manager problem. Real needs someone like Kane or Mbappe really bad and getting rid of the genius who didn't think replacing their best finisher was a priority to begin with would help too.
@benj The Midfield is meh to say the least, everyone is an attacking player but few bodies in the engine room.
