What a return to the Bernabéu!
Well, it wasn’t easy, especially in the first half, but Los Blancos managed to put a nice victory over Celta in the very first match in the Bernabéu.
What can we say about Modric? Incredible performance and he received a standing ovation. He deserved to score that goal, but it was nice to see Camavinga scoring on his debut. It’s special match.
