    If they ask Odegaard for a scouting report, I’d like to see it.
    They got a real chasing tonight and the gulf between a crap team and a good team in poor form was never more evident. We were on a different planet to Arsenal tonight and poor old Martin will never have played in a game like that before. Bet he’s never had so few touches in 90 minutes

    You can count on that.
    If you're not sure what to do with the ball, just put it in the net, and we'll talk about the other options later... Bob Paisley.

    Apparently Real Madrid have lost 7 of the last 10 Champion's League matches that they've not had Ramos feature in. Absolutely insane stat if true, one I'd want to try to fact-check later.

    No Ramos, Hazard may make the bench. No Bale or Ronaldo of course.

    If Thiago/Wijnaldum/Fabinho can keep Kroos and Nordic quiet, then Benzema hopefully doesn't get much ammunition.

    Outrun them, try to keep the Dark Arts stuff to a minimum, stifle them in midfield and aim to be clinical. There should be an away goal to be had in this match.

    It's good for us Benzema isn't exactly the fastest, incredible player mind, I hope we don't give him any chances.

    There's been big rumours Eden Hazard would be fit to play but he hasn't been included in their 21 man squad.

    Think Hazard has scored 2 goals for them in the last God knows how long.

    I'd like to think that even if he came off the bench and got a goal for them, we'd have got an away goal anyway.

    Benzema is the threat. Very underappreciated player. A clean sheet would be huge. Hope Kabak and Phillips can help to conjure one.
