Real Mdrid boss justifies critical calls after AS Roma win

Real Madrid secured first position in Group G courtesy of a 2-0 win over Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

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.

The arrival of Zinedine Zidane as coach brought a new challenge for Isco, who played the final of the Champions League in their 11th triumph in the tournament and with his goals and assists, knocked down doors to become an essential piece of the side which won the league title in the Frenchman's second season.

Raphael Varane then nearly scored a spectacular own goal in the 33rd minute when he met a corner from Cengiz Under, but the ball flew over the Real Madrid crossbar.

Under should have put Roma ahead just before the break but he somehow planted his finish from Nicolo Zaniolo's low cross well over the crossbar from inside the six-yard box.

Bale has scored 74 goals and registered 42 assists in 138 LaLiga outings since joining Los Blancos from Tottenham in 2013 in a then world-record €100m transfer.

Putin lashes out at West for backing Ukraine
The Ukrainian parliament on Monday voted in favour of Poroshenko's request for the introduction of martial law in border areas for 30 days.

Fazio's backpass was sliced high by Robin Olsen, with the defender's attempted header back to the goalkeeper seized upon by the Wales star, who drilled into the bottom-left corner.

And his agent, Jonathan Barnett, has fuelled more talk of a move away for Bale in the future despite saying he is now happy at Madrid.

What does it mean? "It is up to all players to be at 100 percent, so the coaches pick them".

Additionally, a further report from COPE has claimed that Isco refused a handshake from Solari in the dressing room after Real's shock 3-0 defeat at the hands of Eibar last weekend.

Roma were without injured forward Edin Dzeko, the Champions League joint-top scorer this season with five goals, and the Bosnian's absence was felt during a wasteful first half.

According to Mundo Deportivo, all four English sides are alert to the situation after holding long-standing interest in the four-time Champions League victor.
