This is the Champions League and this is Real Madrid.
Before the kickoff the the Grada fan tifo behind the goalpost proclaimed “Somos Los Reyes De Europa” - We are the Kings of Europe, but PSG paid no heed, nor did they remember that 90 minutes in the Bernabeu is a very very long time. For 57 minutes they were the better team and then something happened as so often happens to the 13 time champions. Ancelotti made substitutions and Los Blancos ran amok. The Remontada was complete. PSG looked shell shocked and further disgraced themselves by threatening the referees after the full time whistle. That’s all she wrote. Read all about it on the immediate reaction and 3 answers and 3 questions articles as well as the Managing Madrid podcast. These locker room celebrations say it all.
