Madrid must do the talking on the pitch against Plzen
- Updated: October 23, 2018
Real Madrid go again tonight in the UEFA Champions League when they welcome Czech outfit Viktoria Plzen to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Los Blancos are favorites for all three points in this one but this logic has not translated to maximum points in their last 5 games.
This is because seemingly easy games have suddenly become very tough, tricky, and with high possibilities of upsets.
Regardless, Julen Lopetegui and his men have another opportunity to put smiles on the faces of their fans but only a resounding victory can do this.
They lost on Matchday 2 of the UEFA Champions League away to CSKA Moscow and must win tonight to keep them in good stead for a first place finish as the group is still very much open.
Madrid are surprisingly second on the log with 3 points, 1 point behind leaders CSKA Moscow who are currently on 4. Meanwhile, today’s opponents are last on the table with just 1 point.
Lopetegui has to get his men firing, and it will do the team a lot of good if some of the players do the talking on the pitch and avoid media distractions.
Isco is one of such who has been loud on the media with regards to Ronaldo’s absence as well as Lopetegui’s future.
He and his teammates have to put all their focus on helping Madrid emerge with all 3 points against the supposed minnows of the group.
Anything short of a resounding victory tonight will surely not be acceptable at the Bernabeu. Surely, Lopetegui and players know this. It must not be that bad!
