    Real looking good.

    At this rate Atlético might lose this tie. The intensity and the quickness of Reals passing is so much more than the previous game. Thought fwiw there was no point having Khedira in for this type of game. They're going to struggle to match the work rate of the Atlético Madrid players but just going all out will make them struggle. Isco usually has a good game against Atlético anyway.

    Also don't get why he doesn't just start Carvajal against Atlético all the time.

    Also Toni Kroos is completely dominating this game. The guys passing is unreal and he does it with so little effort. Honestly think he has the passing ability of Xavi at his prime. Great crosser of the ball too.

    Have you changed your keyboard settings to put accents over letters when you press shift & the apostrophe or are you pasting accented letters from Google?

    Alt+Gr allows you to do accent grave. Just hold that on top of the e.

    Doing it with German characters is long so I avoid that.

    The guy is magic right now. Remarkable how he's turned from a #10 into a regista, didn't think he'd be able to pull it off.

    Real are a horrible team to park the bus against. Too many power players.

    Real are ****ing crossing the ball with their heads.

    Big. Didn't know this. I changed my keyboard settings to type with Spanish format and you press the apostrophe before whatever letter you want accented. Bit quicker, but I resetted my PC so now it's back in English.

    Real need another before HT.

    I thought he'd be a good regista. Guardiola spent last season refining his passing. He initially was a box to box player playing at 10. Was a complete midfielder just like Schweinsteigger.

    Definitely, you try attack them they just counter you better than you can you park bus they will use the wingers and the fullbacks. The defence are so fast you can't counter them either.

    Should just bring on Arda for Torres and stick Griezmann up front. Torres is too ineffective when Atletico are this deep.

    Yeah that's true. I think Torres' energy and pressing is good though. They just need another player in support of Torres.

    Atlético need to do another one of their quick bursts and press for about 5 mins. They're missing Gabi's calmness in possession too. Think they should push one striker deeper and then push the backline up. Reckon with Isco and Kroos you can get a run at the midfield. Atlético really need some pace.

    Thought Atlético will try and do a quick start like that and startle Madrid, the worst thing is that there's nothing the opposition can do about it when the opposition start with such a high intensity and pick up a couple loose balls they just have to stick it in, slow down the play and hope for the best.

    Hopefully Torres finds some more form and confidence, he can develop into a different type of striker as he was in his earlier years. But evidently, his finishing ability is still there.
