Ancelotti did not opt to substitute Valverde off even when they were 4-0 up and he just came back from an injury.

Valverde then goes ahead and scores yet another class goal. That’s the golden rule at Real Madrid I guess, no matter what happens, Valverde stays on the pitch.

“That’s three Real Madrid goals in 20 minutes, which is a bit of a worry for Celtic as there’s another 20 minutes to go!”

There is Real Madrid, and other teams 🤭

Many were surprised during the summer when Casemiro left Real Madrid to join Manchester United. Toni Kroos has now revealed that he and Modric had to adapt after their long-time partner in the middle of the park left.

While speaking to the media ahead of the clash against Celtic, the German said (via

“I don’t know if I’m at my peak, because in the last eight years I’ve had a lot of good moments. This is quite a good moment and I’m feeling good. I try to adapt to what the team needs.

“When a player like Casemiro leaves, after everything he’s given, and new players join who play differently, players like me and Luka have to adapt.”

Kroos further added:

“In some games, especially the big ones, perhaps you have to defend a bit more. There hasn’t been a big change in terms of my statistics with the ball. I always try to help the team by playing deeper to get the ball up to the final third as quickly as possible. I try to play like that, but perhaps I have improved in terms of my defending this season”.

Kroos has already won five Champions League trophies with Los Blancos. When quizzed about how it would feel to win a sixth, he said:

“That wouldn’t be bad at all. I can count up to six, so it wouldn’t be a problem. It’s the same every year – we want to win every competition we play in. It’s a new season with a very good team.”

The German international has been a stalwart for Real Madrid and will hope to carry forward the momentum as the side look forward to winning the Champions League.
