UEFA screwed Real here and with Juventus and Barca having very little chances to play CL next season I wonder how long we will wait for another Super League push? After all, those 3 are still in it...

This is Greek league? @cosmicway

Must be from several seasons back.
From the colour it looks like a player of the visiting team -Ergotelis- and they are up 1-0 against AEL.
Those guys want to take him out quick and they stumble.

Marc Overmars allegedly displayed stalking-like behavior towards a female employee of the club and sent her messages including dickpics. His career should be over after this scandal lol.

86.png&w=126&site=espnfcAre Real Madrid doomed without Benzema?

https://www.espn.co.uk/football/blog-espn-fc-united/story/4591677/real-madrid-cant-scoreman-united-cant-winlucky-barcelonabayern-munich-humbled-weekend-review

Real Madrid were always going to suffer without Karim Benzema, but even so, their scoring struggles in the three games since he picked up a hamstring injury -- the latest being Saturday's 0-0 draw at Villarreal -- have been a painful reminder of just how much the team's chances of success this season depend on getting the forward back on the pitch as soon as possible.

None of the alternatives at manager Carlo Ancelotti's disposal are capable of adequately mimicking Benzema's unique skillset. Gareth Bale was tasked with filling in at No. 9 at the Estadio La Ceramica, and he did as well as could reasonably be expected in his first league appearance in over five months. He was Madrid's biggest goal threat by some distance and was denied three times by Geronimo Rulli, including one vicious, dipping second-half shot that the keeper tipped onto the crossbar.

- HIGHLIGHTS: Real Madrid, Villarreal draw 0-0 (U.S. only)

Bale was later replaced by Luka Jovic, who also hit the woodwork with a deft lob in added time. Ancelotti blamed bad luck, and on another day Bale, Jovic or both could have been on the scoresheet, but the importance of Benzema's absence goes far beyond the team missing his clinical finishing. The role he plays as the fulcrum of Madrid's attack, and the space and opportunities he creates for wide players like Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio, are every bit as vital.

Benzema had better be fit enough to contribute against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday to keep Madrid on track in the Champions League, as well as helping them avoid the worst-case scenario that would genuinely jeopardise their LaLiga title push.

For the laughs, I wanna see PSG go out in this tie. Like City, I delight in seeing PSG spending all that money in desperation to win the CL only to choke season after season.

take away those 2 giant buys years ago on Neymar and Mbappe, and they have not been that much of monster spenders at all
