    Real madrid needs to sell modric and toni kross and start valverde regularly... also they need to buy some quality midfielders... isco and james i dont think is the best for the club...

    imagine if hazard stayed back at chelsea. He would have been a guru for odoi, mason, tammy. playing with future players exciting football. now he is stuck at a has been club with aging squad and overpaid players produce sub par result and almost no chance of winning the UCL. BAD BAD Decision to play for his idol Zidane who might be gone before the end of the season

    Real Madrid is always overrated just like EPL MEDIA TEAMS. Anytime they bet for classico match for instance in East Africa and other English colonised countries, favor real Madrid. It's a shame really. Overrated Madrid players were selected to be in number of the best CL squads, OVERRATED ZIDANE TOO!!!

    It was only a matter of time. Messi is back and once that train starts, nobody can stop it. It's so hard to win against a side with Messi troughout 38 Games.
    He scores around 30 goals and assists another 15.

    Hazard should have seen this coming, they was no sign of Real improving since Ronaldo left. He would have been better off at Chelsea.

  • vivek hari narayanan.v

    They need players like cr7, Neymar, Suarez, de bruyne, dani alves, godin on the pitch to somehow push for the win when they are a goal or two down...Real has been terrible without leaders on the pitch...

      But to be fair this two team thing only started two seasons ago. Before it was either Manchester United, Chealsea and Arsenal winning the league and that Leicester upset. While other teams rose up like Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham to be competitors for the top 4. I feel like the premier league has like those phases of having different dominant teams every 4 years. At least It isnt Bundesliga or La Liga where the same two teams for their respective league dominate for the past decade.

      @Gabriel Jesus you can't compare sarri's Chelsea to Frank's, Frank's had how many months at Chelsea in charge? Compared to a whole season of sarri, and bearing in mind Frank doesn't even have hazard, and a transfer ban.

      Liverpool and city became better at the same time the other team got worst. Chelsea with lampard is good but sarri's chelsea was better. Man utd is not doing well at all. And tottenham lost confidence they just gave up lol.

    ESPN pundits are so ignorant lol
    La Liga mid and low tier teams are and were always tough to beat on their stadiums, their players are unknown but very advanced tactically as they have so many players from South America, they also aren't international so they get so much more time to rest and prepare plus the great supporting fans.
    Zaragoza has beaten galacticos RM "Ronaldo, Zidane etc.." 6-1 before, while Getafe eliminated a great Barca from Copa "Ronaldinho, Eto, Xavi, Puyol etc.." by winning 4-0 on their stadium, that was some minor examples.

    If this were about Man Utd, the pundits would be all over how Ole is making poor decisions and doesn't understand this or that. Instead they barely mention Zidane's role in this significant loss. Oh, its the players, they're not hungry enough, they're playing poorly, etc. But like you folks pointed out, Man Utd don't have the same quality of players that RM have. No bias here.

      ​@Billie Eilish Mexico players like pulisic, reece james, Marc Guehi, billy gilmour could all be out on loan right now if chelsea still had hazard. they are rebuilding right now. its very obvious. under sarri hudson odoi was incredible in training but they choose to start willian over him... its clearly different right now. the owner spends billions on the academy so it makes sense that he hires someone to use it.

    • Billie Eilish Mexico
      Billie Eilish Mexico Month ago

      @John Flanagan Well, that isnt the case. These players are playing because they are in a good form. Moreover , in general English teams are encouraged to start the young English players if possible which is easier in case of the blues with an English manager and plenty of young English players. Had they been thinking about building a team for the future , Pulisic would get more minutes.

    • John Flanagan
      John Flanagan Month ago +1

      @Billie Eilish Mexico they could easily play giroud over abraham and pedro over odoi and kovacic over mount and sarri would of done that but chelsea are preparing for the future on purpose.

      @Ben Cloud That is not even the most important thing. It is fear factor
      When Ronaldo is playing, the opponent is afraid. Marking him with two or more players

      Ben Cloud Month ago +4

      of course Cristiano was much more than just goalscorer, only retards with no football knowledge say that he was ''just'' goalscorer. He was brilliant player for them, morons just don't get that he had to change from winger into a striker because of age and his chronic knees pain. Before 2015 when he transformed himself into number 9, he was brilliant winger (he starter his career as a winger in United).

    Real Madrid need either Neymar / Mane in as a front man. And play Hazard & Bale on wings. Both Hazard and Bale put together will not get 30 goals. Now it seems unbelievable to let CR7 go, a garanteed 50 goal a season player
