After the final La Liga match of the season vs Real Betis, the team discussed:

  • Carlo fields a full strength eleven — will it be the same team against Liverpool?
  • Who would we opt for in the Rodrygo vs Valverde debate
  • Militao’s performance today and his trajectory this season
  • The Pintus effect on the squad’s freshness heading into the final stage of the season
  • Comparing the fitness levels of the current squad vs previous Real Madrid UCL final squads (2013-2014, 2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2018-2019)
  • A long and emotional Marcelo send off — remembering the best of the Brazilian: a foundational figure in Madrid’s recent title triumphs and a symbol of Madridismo.
  • Remembering Isco and acknowledging his influence over the best Madrid squads
