Real Madrid V Manchester City about to kick off.

Here we go. Been waiting for this match for a while. Hope it's a good un.

“Jack graelish has been on the end of some physicality”
He’s been “fouled a lot” but there’s barely been any contact in any of them. The shove into the board was rough though

Carvajal got him good at the 27th minute too. Should’ve been a yellow.

Carvajal is a POS Madridista, but he's an ELITE shithouser and I'd take him on my team any day. World class fullback. That Camavinga fellow is OK too

Mind bending that Camavinga couldn’t crack France’s starting XI in Qatar. I think he started the 3rd group stage match at RB?

That's just Deschamps things though. He came on for Hernandez after 70 mins in the final, and lo and behold France improved greatly thereafter.

Madrid are competing well obviously, but City's bench is much better. I expect to see Tchoua shortly, but who else on Madrid makes it on? Asensio perhaps?

Some great articles on the Milan derby out today in the Guardian, the Athletic, and The Independent (I'm sure many other places as well).

Such an interesting state of affairs given their relatively tame derby, history of success, fallow period, recent success, and uncertain futures.

Blazing start from Internazionale!! They've been my Italian side ever since Zannetti was el capitan, and they've always had lots of Argentinos. Got to see them lose to Udinese back in 2003 or 2004. The San Siro is special.
