3 Crucial Points
A solid resurgence from the squad leads to another 3 points. Of course, it was a bit concerning early when Espanyol scored but some Vini brilliance and a brilliant Tchouameni assist put Los Blancos in a position to win today’s game.
All Arbeloa Does is Win Win Win No Matter What
Juvenil A have won the CDR. Arbeloa has not lost a game all season. Truly an incredible feat even at the youth level.

Wish Us Luck for the Wars Ahead
The next few games (minus international break) will likely be season defining for Real Madrid. We’ll need all the black magic we can get.

Rodrygo Should Take More FKs
Yes - thats the tweet. I understand he didn’t score today, but our FKs have been somewhat inept for years. I may be bias but I feel like Rodrygo is often closer than Benz / Kroos and should garner more opportunities from the left side of the pitch. Unless the plan is to have Alaba shoot all FKs (which I’m ok with).
RODRYGO HITS THE BAR -- nice free-kick striker. If he's on the field he should take those right-sided direct FKs— Managing Madrid (@managingmadrid) March 11, 2023
