Post game stat crunching.

Benzema has already matched his goals from last season and in 13 fewer games. Outstanding!! Leading by example just as a leader should in the post CR7 era.

Yash Thakur goes deeper into the game against PSG with some in depth analysis both on an individual and team level. Take a look at these numbers.

Will Nasser Al-Khelaifi face any consequences for his actions?

After the game it was reported that Bernabeu security had to step in to stop Al Kheleifi and Leonardo from getting to the referees. Now further reports are coming out that shows that this is nothing new. Romain Molina a freelance writer whose done investigations for The Guardian, CNN and BBC has reported that “many employees at PSG were happy that Real Madrid eliminated their club from the UCL last night. There’s an awful dysfunctional atmosphere at the club and the employees are treated horribly, some were even spat on by a person in Nasser’s entourage”.

He goes on to say that “Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s entourage isn’t surprised by his meltdown at the Bernabeu last night. It’s not the first time, he gets very angry, he even calls employees at 1 or 2 in the morning sometimes to put pressure on them. He loves conflict and If PSG fans knew 5% of what goes on in their club, not one person would go to Parc Des Princes anymore”.

While Real Madrid are not likely to take any action they could face some fallout.

Also this didn’t age well.
