Dortmund failing to win against Apoel basically paves the way further for Real and Spurs. Both will qualify, just remains to be seen who tops the group and who finishes second.

Decent game tonight, attacks too strong for defences but goalies did well.

I can't believe the two missed chances by Benzema but in the end Keylor saved Real Madrid the point with those amazing saves.

At what point do Real Madrid starts looking for a real 9. No matter the great Linkup plays, helping Cr7 score and all, Benz status will always be questioned as long as he keep missing those easy key chances. It used to be acceptable when Cr7 was younger and was scoring more, but he's older now, and as expected his rendering is becoming less, and Benz is not helping.

Also one thing that hit me today, our team is becoming predictable. We have become a systematic goal scoring team. Who in our offense makes runs beyonds the Defense now. Cr7 tries but his legs can't do it anymore. Benz has never been that kinda player, and Bale is more injured than helathy.

Really not signing Mbakpe, and giving more role to Isco is just counter productive. James gave us direct play from midfield to offense. With Isco, we have more intricate passing and a running striker would be ideal to him. But we have neither.

Another night with same problems, ZZ will be arrogant to not see whats obvious.. Its just October and we already drew 3 times and lost once at HOME.

Chances are not converted, we went from having Morata and Mariano to no striker at bench ( Mayoral was left out btw )

as bad as Karim was, we never created any threat after he left because we needed a striker and a presence in the penalty area when Spurs are defending with 5 or 6.

Same story over and over again. Madrid is slow and lack dynamism. And why does keep playing Hakini? He's not providing anything and is more of an hindrance than anything else. We might as well play a 3-5-2!!
