Managing Madrid Podcast: Champions League Semifinal Recap

New, comments

Gabe Lezra, Mike Platania and Timm Higgins (making his triumphant return to the show) recap Real Madrid's victory against Rayo Vallecano and los blancos' Champions League semifinal draw against Manchester City, and answer your questions on this episode of the #MMPodcast.

It's another delayed podcast because producer-host Kiyan Sobhani is once again on vacation (sad!)! In this episode I (Gabe Lezra) am joined by Mike Platania and Timm Higgins to discuss Real Madrid's thrilling 2-3 victory over Rayo Vallecano and their whatever the opposite of thrilling is 0-0 draw against Manchester City.

The guys break down the UEFA Champions League draw, analyzing what went wrong (and right) for los blancos. Are there things Madrid could do better? Is this a good result for Madrid despite everything? And does any of this matter given that Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are both injured?

We also took a number of your questions (sorry we didn't get to all of them!), from questions about Casemiro to James to Zidane's substitutions to... GAME OF THRONES.
