Asensio is an awful player. Does feck all. Poor Dani got evicerated by Mbappe like in the 1st leg

The subs absolutely changed the dynamics of the game. We went from being wide open in the middle of the pitch to covering every shade of grass and winning all 2nd balls

Cama is one heck of a player. Him, Valverde and Modric were unplayable when they played together

Bet Ronaldo misses these nkghts

Forgot to mention: Benzema 10/10, would save replay for records.

Once again he plays by example I thank his continued service to our club. I hope to enjoy watching for as long as he is able to keep going. Truly he is monsieur champions league.

ffs just realized our left side is going to be Mendy, Mbappe and free flowing Benzema. Not to mention alaba on LCB and whoever the LCM will be (camavinga?)

It'll be glorious

I think it would be best to examine past posts before getting carried away about yesterday’s performance. There are way too many of you here that were overly critical and doom predictors and equally so in the GL general section of posts stating how the so called dream team would dominate everything!

I’m not pointing fingers but there is a lot of boasting by previous naysayers!

One repeated comment is about Asensio! Reality is our team is lacking forwards. We expect that major issue to be rectified this summer. In the meantime, the only viable starting options for LW are Asensio and Rodrygo. the latter is still developing and is best suited as substitute or some rotation, which is exactly what Ancelotti is doing. All the other forwards Hazard, Bale, Mariano, Jovic and Isco can’t be trusted. They are either lacking in confidence, injured or not in game shape. So recognize that although Asensio is certainly not the RW we need, he is the only option! Unless you want to make Lucas starter again, lol!

Interesting to note that, imo, PSG would never have even sniffed a change on goal without Mbappe... now imagine that attack without him next season (yes, he's leaving).

Vini better learn how to play on the right next year because that's where he's going to spend 60-70% of his time next season. I think he can. His issue wasn't position as much as confidence. He can't play CF of course. But I don't see why he can't play on the right.

After having spent the last month or so, watching both Vini and Mbappe play, I’m convinced you are right Sports! Can’ t believe I am actually posting an agreement with Sports! Lol.

I said it after the first leg, you take Mbappe off of that team and they are nothing. And yet if you added Mbappe to existing Real squad and suddenly they become CL favourites.

And meanwhile Vini is gaining more confidence every week. If he can adapt to the right, the pair plus Benz or Haaland will be phenomenal. I’m hoping RMad can secure liga in next month and then let’s have Carlo play on RW and have Hazard on left, just to give Vini some experimental time on pitch.

The good news is, his contract ends next year.

Knowing Florentino, if he hasn't renewed him until now, he's not planning to.

We're losing alot of spanish players in the upcoming summer(s). If Asensio is ok with cameo appearances from the bench then it'd be wise to keep him. He doest cost much in terms of wages and he can still contribute by coming off the bench

Asensio isn’t going anywhere, except to a bench roll. There are requirements for # of spanish players on squad and as it stands now, you can expect Isco, Ceballos, Vallejo to go leaving only Carvajal, Lucas, Nacho and Asensio remaining and 2 of them are near retirement age! None of the possible additions being mentioned are Spanish and I thought we all agreed it isn’t a good idea to have young castilla players filling squad numbers and sitting on bench!

i wouldnt be mad at Asensio if he provided defensive workrate, but he literally offers nothing. Left Dani stranded with Mbappe, couldnt connect with others in the offense.

We got dominated by an average one man PSG side for 150 minutes. for 30 minutes we played well with high intensity and moved the ball fast and got the result. and guess what, there was no KCM and no Asensio. as i and many others said many times. it is not hard to see what we were missing.

I hope this victory and what happened during 2 PSG games is a wake up call for Carlo.

He was forced to play Cama and Valverde. not by choice. and it was the best thing that could have happened to him as a coach. lucky man.

That's incorrect

Yes we got dominated for the full 90 mins away. But we started the home game really well. Had a great 20 mins period. PSG grew into game and contained us fairly well. The second half was total dominance from us and it reflects on the stats board too. PSG had 2 shots against our 15 in the second half. Yes our dominance became more evident when Cama and Rodrygo came on because our pressuring became more relentless. But you're way off in your assessment of how the tie went imo

As for Carlo's forcing, you got to be a pretty naïve person to not know that Carlo was not gonna start Kroos and Asensio because, well, he totally was.

What Carlo did right is actually subbing both as neither had any meaningful contribution as oppose to leaving them there hoping they find some sort of form which a lot of managers tend to do.

Food for thought though: Modric only got his starts after we had a real midfield injury crisis under Mourinho and was forced to start him. Maybe this is Cava and/or Rodrygo's fate as well (probably not, Carlo is very Italian).

I have a different view of midfield than most of you. I do have a lot of trust of Carlo and his track record suggest that his strategies work. Both Kroos and Modric have had great, and good performances despite their age. even in this game, Kroos was good in first 15 minutes or so. The issue is they can’t keep it up, more so with Kroos this week.  Bottom line, Carlo sticking with his set starters is pure Carlo and generally works. BUT, he should be subbing and/ or rotating both of them with Valverde and Cava. Actually I think the biggest problem this year is Casemiro. I liked Cava in that role this week!

If I were Carlo (which I’m not), i would make some serious rotations between the 5 of them!

And re Asensio, i said previously, there isn’t a viable other option available other than the rotation with Rodrygo which has been happening. Besides, this will all change next season.

And Doc, thank you for reminding us of Mourinho’s distaste for Modric. Some have been claiming here that Mourinho made him the star he is!

This gives us the chance to draw 5 of our last 10 games. Safe to say barring an unprecedented disaster Carlo has finally won the much alluded LaLiga trophy

These takes are hilarious. Mourinho never saw him as a key component of his midfield and was planning on using him as a utility player that could be rotated with Ozil in the 10 and Both Khedira and Alonso in the double pivot.

10 points ahead and it's safe to say we are cruising to the championship. Well deserved

Now we wait for the medical reports on Benz Mendy and Rodrygo. Mallorca went to play today like it's the royal rumble. How maffeo did not get sent off is beyond me

I'll keep saying this.... but the fact that Benzema is getting better at his age is ridiculous. It's nonsensical really. Same with Modric keeping his form; he's not actually getting better though unlike Benzema.
