    Marcelo needs to be more disciplined in this game otherwise Salah and co are gonna cause havoc in that defence, I can't see Madrids defence containing the pace of Liverpools attack and counters. My heart says 2-1 Madrid but my head says 2-1 Liverpool

    Yeah I agree. But Liverpool's fullbacks are going to have a tough time. Especially when Bale comes on nearer the end of the game.

    Come on, surely someone’s watching

    Damn, Bale on the bench. That's what your call a super sub.

    Probably tactical decision to bring Bale's pace versus tired fullbacks while starting a possessional type game, later to get them on counter

    Yeah that's very true, for me, Liverpools first team is better but Madrids team + bench is greater so it's really difficult, if it's still a tight game by 60 minutes and Madrid bring on Bale or Asensio then Liverpool will struggle

    Imagine Zidane starting 4321, pausing at kickoff and subbing on Bale for Kroos 1st min and switching 41212(2) :D

    Completely agree. But I think Zidane wants a more solid midfield today, hence why he's started with three CMs and a CAM.

    I have no idea why Emre Can isn't starting.

    Massive game for Alexander Arnold, against CR7. This is going to be very tough.

    Benzema only plays every game because hes Algerian French, hes been pretty woeful this season.

    Bale has 16 goals in 20 starts in the league, Benzema has 5 goals in 25 starts :D

    I know right! And he won't start for Brazil because hardly any manager uses a false nine.

    Looks like the shaky Real have shown up, could go either way at this point.
