  • Madrid eye champions league consolidation against Roma

It's only worse news for Ünder after Gareth Bale opened the scoring for Los Blancos in the second half.

Luka Modric's shot was blocked and Raphael Varane made a last-ditch clearance to keep Madrid level, while a ferocious Aleksandar Kolarov long-range drive flew just wide of the post.

The midfielder hasn't started once under Solari in six matches, with the Roma match being the latest disappointment for him.

Whether Solari saw this as a sign of disrespect and is deciding to punish Isco, or whether his exclusion is a tactical decision remains to be seen, with the manager refusing to comment much on the situation. Starters and substitutes are fictitious problems that don't exist.

Madrid goalscorer Gareth Bale said that he hoped clinching qualification for the Champions League last 16 as group winners would help calm what has been a "turbulent" first four months of the season at the club. "It is up to all players to be at 100 percent, so the coaches pick them".


As for Real Madrid, it was the flawless response to their 3-0 defeat to Eibar at the weekend, and the result reminded a few that they will not be giving up their European crown without a fight. All players want to play, but we need to work.

Cengiz Under produced a contender for the worst miss of the season late in Tuesday's first half, the Roma forward blasting a awful effort over the crossbar from close range.

A massive blunder by Roma centre-half Federico Fazio gifted Real Madrid their opening goal, a sight that will come as no surprise to Tottenham Hotspur fans.

"It has been a bit of a turbulent start to the season but we have to keep fighting every game no matter what position we are in".

"That is football, it can be frustrating sometimes when things are not quite coming off". We are a young team, we need patience and have to earn a lot of experience.
