No off days. The UCL returns!!

The Champions of Europe (that’s right, say it as many times as you like) begin their campaign on Tuesday night at one of the most electrifying stadiums in Europe. Celtic Park or Parkhead can be a notoriously difficult place to get an away result but Carlo and the gang seem to be up for the challenge. Here’s the team’s schedule for their travel to Glasgow. Vinicius Tobias and Iker Bravo who were both surprise inclusions in the UCL squad registration did not however make it to the match squad. APorLa15!!

Our season so far.

It hasn’t always been pretty but Los Blancos have a 100% winning start to the league campaign and with Barcelona breathing down their necks they will most certainly need to keep it up. One positive is Ancelotti has been rotating much more with Camavinga, Tchouameni, Rudiger and Rodrygo all getting starts. He will however need to find his optimal starting 11 as the season progresses, especially for the big games.

The right side isn’t dead with Rodrygo’s inclusion in the starting lineup.

So that brings up a difficult question.


Which midfield do the Madridistas prefer based on early results so far this season?

Notice how Tchouameni is the only constant. He’s earned his place.
