we're not being crap... this is the Mourinho pragmatism that Zizou saw. He's looking to get a draw away minimum and maybe get a lucky goal. But things should open up later.

Very cautious... but with our defense, I understand it.

The weird thing is Benz has gotten the better of Kompany before... So Kompany shouldn't have been a problem even if slightly unfit.

Then again our midfield isn't doing a good job creating chances. Only one or two crosses, and passing is abysmal and worse Benz is getting himself out of position. He needs to stay up a little more with CR7 gone.

Well, at least City isnt bending over. We'll have to work this result.

Then he should also know this is what made Mourinho a failure here. There is zero room for such nonsense. City needs to be challenged. when they are challenged, they fold easily. Real Madrid are being way too casual. and it will cost us if we don't take charge of this tie.

A team that sits back and wait for a lucky goal isn't a big team or a team worthy of silverware. This is a disgrace, plain and simple. He's parking the bus against Pellegrini. For f sake.

More like 2v6 lol. Benzema has been invisible. I don't blame him, he is very unfit injury wise and needs rest. Jese on please

You need to get off your French bias train . look at this thread, does it look like I'm the only one seeing Benzema getting dominated by half arsed company?

He aint getting dominated, just not getting chances and being stupid with the one that he had. tarnish not Bale hasn't a single chance all first half.

Midfield not doing its job.

With the season we have had we are hardly in a position to play like this has been like a smooth ride. We have like the worst first leg record out there with 1 win in 6 and no more than 1 goal scored. And with our habit of only giving one half of excellent football i am not too fussed about the cagey first half

He is not playing well though. But the guy is clearly not fit. I mean, good for him for trying his hardest (which he is) but I don't think he can be of any real use today.

And let's not forget we have La Real this weekend. We need Benzema as fresh as possible.

We need to attack. We attack, we score and gain an advantage.

Clear as day De bruyne and Aguero are overrated pos. We need to take charge now while city are complacent.

Jese for Benz... Interesting. Let's see what happens.

Casemirio's passes have been horrrible. Its so disgusting.he is. So scared to hold d ball and loses it everytim. Now I see what people were saying when they said we could upgrade.

We miss Ronaldo. These players lack ambition. None of them making runs into the box

It sucks because Casemiro is so damn good defensively. I'd argue he saved a few goals today

Not with this attitude and passing we're not.
Totally lacking apart from Bale and Vazquez. Defense doing their job at least.

but the midfield and frontline have been absolutely disappointing.

Bale and Vazquez are exempt. its mostly the midfield making everything more difficult than it should be.

We trying to play some bs possession footy all game, we need direct, risky passing ffs. possession is worthless if its not being put to use.

Midfield is a game of control. Naturally I want controllers there or at least peeps who are comfortable with the ball. The dm naturally do not excel here. This is why I strongly disapprove of dms in a tactical setup in the first place.

Casemiro needs to be more brave, he can pass but right now it seems he isnt handling the pressure very well and its affecting his confidence. ofc he cant hold it but he can pass it quickly enough that it shouldnt be a problem.

I can't believe we haven't taken advantage of the away goal rule. Now every time City scores at the Bernabeu, we'll have to score two.

Better second half but still too many sloppy passes. Especially Marcelo who couldnt find a navy blue shirt to save his life. Lucas as well was atrocious in the second half. Turnover after turnover. Pepe saved our arses time and time again. Should have scored though

City came out from their own home game with a grand total of 0 shots on target. We shouldve won

Very professional gameplan.  Unfit CR + Benz = play tight and have it decided at the Bernabeu with both players fit hopefully. Last thing you want to do is open up the game where City don't have to cheat to cover WC strikers... they can defend straight up and, thus, attack with more bodies.

Wise decision. Gameplan with your head and not your heart. This is how you win trophies.

Pros:
Surprisingly well disciplined. Ramos kept his cancerous ways in check and Pepe actually rewound the clock to show why I rated him highly. First half was dog shit football because our midfield just couldn't string anything together but our back four was legit.

2nd half was way better so Hala was correct.

Cons:
Our midfield played dog shit football for way too long. Bale and Lucas faded as the match went along and Jese has regressed into something unrecognisable. Kroos has obviously been getting lessons from Ronaldo on set piece taking.

Honestly, a fitter Benzema and Cristiano would have made this match better in terms of the scoreline.
