Hey all! I bet most of you didn't even know that Madrid had a game today, much less thought you'd actually hear about it. Yeah, neither did I.
In fact, I just realized that los blancos are playing Leciester City like 5 minutes ago, and I've started my daily search for a good stream (if you know of one drop it off in the comments!).
So what can we expect going into this game?
- Mourinho won't use his starters. Xabi Alonso, Cristiano Ronaldo, Özil, Pepe and Casillas are all sitting (and I'm not sure we'll even see them at any point during the match).
- That means that players like Kaká and Callejón (and probably Jesé and Joselu) will have full reign to make a strong case as to why they should start (or at least as to why they should get lots of minutes).
- Always interesting to see Varane, and how he handles top European attackers. Keep your eyes on him.
- Fabio Coentrão is starting...at left wing mid. This is clearly a test. Keep an eye on how he does, and how he works with Marcelo on the left flank.
