That's a bit more like it.
good game. entertaining. going forward madrid looked strong. defence was another story. clearly they tapped off after the 4th goal. the goal by Basel though was a good one. great interplay in the build up. one touch quick passes. great finish to end the move.
Decent team performance, shame about the goal (Ramos running out of position making the through ball on to the goal). Nacho played well, Casillas made a great 1 on 1 save just a few feet from him too. Modric was superb as he usually is, Kroos & James will get better and Bale could be less wasteful as well. Carlo getting his tactics spot on as always in a cup competition match, he clearly cares more about UCL than La Liga. Fun fact; In 18 complete seasons as a manager, Carlo has won the same amount of Champions League titles (3) as League titles (3) and as domestic cups (3). Totally not a cup manager! /s
