La Liga

Opinion: Mendy is the best left back in the world and the best signing by Perez in the last 5 years.

Despite what people say, lots of positives from this match where we were playing without Ramos, Carva, Benz, Hazard, Rodrygo, etc. & with average age of our bench as 20 years.

Mendy is the best Left Back in the world and the best signing by Perez in the last 5 years.

Mendy's attacking contribution - we all know Mendy is solid defensively but Zizou is slowing using his attacking skills also, his pace & dribbling going forward were a joy to watch.

Zizou's masterclass - starting isco was a top tactical decision which allowed extra midfielder so that Vinicius & Mendy can go forward at will. We saw good pieces of creative play until Vinicius was removed.

Isco's Disco - top performance by isco, give him runners in front & he can destroy the defense, we can start isco instead of Asensio from now on with Benz & Vinicius upfront. Also, he didn't ignore Vinicius runs like other midfielders do.

Nacho is love - Another top performance by Nacho, looked so solid at the back always wanted to score goals going forward many times. Since Ramos is returning in next leg, we can use Nacho in place of Casemiro.

Away goal - Though I wanted Madrid to score 2 goals, but credit should also be given to the way Atalanta defended after the red card. 1 goal lead will be very helpful in 2nd leg given that we started a weak team & a better team would be available in 2nd leg.

I see lots of fans mocking Zizou's tactics, I have just one thing to say to them, "give me Zidane & 10 pieces of wood I will get you UCL" - is just a saying & not practically possible with this bunch of complacent players.
