What happens to Fede Valverde now?
Well there will be consequences for sure and violence is never the answer but at the same time what repercussions are there for player’s making extremely hurtful comments? Really not sure how to put an end to something like that. Player mics perhaps? Though there’s plenty of downsides to that as well.

On to the Champions League.
Like Real Madrid, Chelsea are also coming into this game having lost to Julen Lopetegui’s Wolves 1-0. The London side are now in 11th place and desperately need something positive to salvage their season. Los Blancos should be able to take care of business but in the Champions League funny things happen as we know all too well.
