Marcel Schmelzer's second-half volley was enough to hand Borussia Dortmund a fine 2-1 win over Real Madrid and move the German champions to the top of Group D.
Stun... hardly. Sky (more like English press) getting desperate because only United won and it wasn't that convincing. 0-2 at home against Braga? Seriously? Any decent side would of demolished United. So yeah, English press can't praise English teams because they were shit, so they go and attack Madrid since they were the only Spanish team to lose this week in the Champions League. Dortmund are a good side, especially at home. City was bossed for 90 minutes at home and were lucky to get a point against them. Madrid are playing a formation which isn't ideal for the team's playing style. We have no full backs; Arbeloa, Fábio Coentrão and Marcelo are all crocked. 3-5-2 would never be a formation if all players were fit. Mourinho rarely changes his 4-5-1 and when he does it's a 4-3-3 system. No natural full backs has forced Mourinho's hand here and games will be difficult because of it. 3/3 German wins, 3/4 for Spain and 1/4 for England (1/5 for GB) in this week's Champions League... oh dear!
maybe mourinho should trust in his academy players, nacho, is one of the captains of Real Madrid Castilla (B) and touted as one of the biggest talents coming from the academy and is a natural LB and what does he get to do? sit on the bench, if he even brought cause him, im not sure
