Real Madrid did get this season’s Champions League campaign off to a winning start against the Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon this week, but it was a far from convincing performance that left all the pre-match talk about Los Blancos looking like a good bet to become the first club top retain the European Cup in the4 UCL era look a bit shaky.
Cristiano Ronaldo was the inspiration for the late turnaround and you can never give up hope when CR7 is on the pitch, but he has not been scoring free kicks too often of late and on another day and with another referee he would not even have had the chance after what looked like minimal contact from the Sporting player.
So if you want to win some cash I would go to a betting and Australian online casino website and look for something else to put your money on if I was you, especially as the main rivals to Real Madrid winning group F are the German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund and they are absolutely flying at the minute and won their UCL clash with Legia Warsaw 6-0.
The next European match for Madrid is away in Dortmund and unless we win that I can see Madrid finishing second and having a much tougher game in the knockout stage. One bet that does look better is for Real Madrid to beat Barcelona and Atletico Madrid to this year’s La Liga title, especially after the Catalan club suffered a shock defeat to Alaves last weekend.
So far it is maximum points for Zinedine Zidane and the lads and the next three league matches against Espanyol, Villarreal and Las Palmas are not likely to change that. It’s about time Madrid were Spanish chammpions and I’m sure that is the main goal for the season, so will it be our turn?
