Pour oublier son échec avec Kylian Mbappé en début de mercato estival, le Real Madrid ambitionnerait de recruter une star de Liverpool. Zinédine Zidane en 2001, Ronaldo en 2002, David Beckham en 2003, Michael Owen en 2004, Robinho en 2005 : à chaque mercato une des plus grandes stars de la planète rejoint la Casa Blanca à prix d’or. Présent au Real Madrid depuis 2013 et ses premiers pas chez les jeunes, Casemiro pourrait changer d’air lors du prochain mercato estival. 46′ We’re underway for the second half as Real Madrid kick-off. Perhaps the first-place club in La Liga was guilty of resting on its laurels a bit because Madrid flattered to deceive in the opening half. With the lead now in its hands, it plays into the strengths of that trio and I can see it doing a great job of keeping the ball and not allowing Chelsea to get a foothold in the game. Chelsea have had a couple of big chances, including an effort from Lukaku but Benzema’s hat-trick is the difference between the sides. James opens his body up to curl a cross into Lukaku. He looks like the less-confident version of the Lukaku most of us are used to.
Madrid’s midfield are visibly tired. 21.05 BST: Clubs around Europe are continuing to circle for France U19 international Alan Virginius, according to Le10 Sport. Real Madrid, Bayern, Manchester City, Juventus: un à un, ensemble real madrid les clubs européens dévoilent leurs maillots pour la saison prochaine. Auteur d’une merveilleuse saison avec le Real Madrid, Vinicius Jr a franchi un cap ces derniers mois. Vinicius Junior is a certainty on the left-wing for the Merengues, with Karim Benzema spearheading the attack. Bien qu’emmené par son incroyable MNM composée de Kylian Mbappé, Neymar et Lionel Messi, le PSG a malheureusement subi un nouvel échec cuisant sur la scène européenne lors de cette saison 2021-2022, avec une terrible élimination du Paris SG face au Real Madrid de Karim Benzema dès les huitièmes de finale. Karim Benzema becomes the first player ever to score a European hat-trick against Chelsea. Chelsea by contrast get a little more nervous at this stage of the competition; they’ve reached the semis on seven occasions, but have only made it through to the final twice.
They get it through a nice move by Havertz but his final product is lacking. Courtois collects. Militao is down now after a challenge with Havertz. Tuchel said after the 1-0 win over West Ham. Meanwhile, teenager Jayden Braaf moved to Borussia Dortmund after City did not enter into new contract negotiations. Reece James curls a free kick from way out on the left straight into Courtois’ hands. Chelsea look for a way through. So, it will be interesting to see which way he leans on Tuesday night. The 34-year-old will again be the biggest thorn in the side for the Blues as they look to mount an unlikely comeback at the Santiago Bernabeu. 10 from where he will look to pull strings in the final third. Ancelotti’s side will still look to pose a threat going forward, but we will not see them overcommit bodies to the attack, especially in the opening 45 minutes. That will suit Madrid. Madrid have pressed well, exposed space in Chelsea’s set-up and attacked with speed when possible. When called upon, the Belgian has done his job tonight, despite all the boos from Chelsea fans.
Chelsea are 3-1 down if you’re just joining. Real Madrid are using all their experience now to slow the game right down. Real Madrid have won eight of their last nine matches in all competitions and are in top form. Once again Thomas Tuchel’s side are in the top four of the Premier League but aren’t in the title race. En revanche, il est vrai que le profil de Carlo Ancelotti a du mal à convaincre, même si son premier passage au Real avait été couronné de succès avec une victoire en Ligue des Champions, avec un certain Zinedine Zidane comme adjoint. The Hard Tackle predicts a scored draw at the Bernabeu, which should ensure safe passage through to the semi-finals for Carlo Ancelotti’s men. Moreover, star striker Karim Benzema is just possessed in his quest for his maiden Ballon d’Or. Benzema looks to play Vinicius in down the left but Chelsea deal with it.
