CHAMPIONS LEAGUE:REAL MADRID VS ATALANTA

It has not been exactly happy days at Real Madrid this season especially at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium but Los Blancos rolled back the years with a clinical display to beat Atalanta 3-1 for an aggregate win of 4-1 in the round of 16. The side from Bergamo helped Real on their way after 34 minutes. Goalkeeper Sportiello cleared the ball straight at Luka Modric who unselfishly squared the ball to Benzema for the easy finish.As if Real need the help come on. Benzema is Mr reliability for Real who is benefiting from an international career cut shot. Vinicius is a talent there is no doubt about it. The one thing he needs to polish up is his finishing. He is in a way similar to Marcus Rashford of Manchester United who gets himself in good areas but lacks the finishing product. The comical way in which Toloi tried to con the ref by pointing just outside the box left me in stitches. The Atalanta captain tripped the marauding Vinicius INSIDE the box for an obviuos penalty. If I was Toloi I would protest the foul rather than admit guilt and point outside the box, you will never get away with it when VAR is around. Captain fantastic Ramos did the rest to leave Atalanta with a mountain to climb. When the Italian side got the odd chance, they found Courtois in great form. The Belgian keeper saving well from Zapata on 75. Muriel got the consolation with a free kick that beat Courtois with 7 minutes of the 90 to go. Right from the restart Marco Asensio finished off a great attack orchestrated by Lucas Vazquez.
