CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2010 - 2011 | GROUP G RESULT | AUXERRE 0 REAL MADRID 1

Yes the three points are important & yes REAL MADRID won away 0 -1 AUXERRE in their Group G CHAMPIONS LEAGUE qualifier, but the image was sad. The Spanish team looked impotent most of the night & the French had their chances ( post included from a Pepe header in defence) of getting ahead.

http://spanishfootballsports.blogspot.comThe French team put up a very organized defence that waited for their chances to counter-attack, which they did on numerous ocassions & nearly surprised the visitors. The Spaniards have a real problem upfront even with 3 forwards ( Benzema, Higuain & Ronaldo)
that couldn't break through the French defence. In fact, the observer comes to the conclusion that there is no creative spark, a true play maker or simply someone that does something out of the ordinary to surprise the opposition.

Mid way through the second half Real Coach Mourinho had to pull something out of his bag of tricks to change things. He took off Benzema for Ozil & later Lass for Di Maria in order to mix things up & change the "boring" course of things. Then in the 78th min the ocassion came when Sergio Ramos ( suspected hand-ball) passed to DI MARIA who hammered the winner to give Madrid eventually the victory.

Yes, the 3º points are important, especially after the other Group teams Ajax - AC Milan finished their game in a 1-1 draw to give Real Madrid the top spot of the Group G ladder. But, oh my dear, the image was below the level of what one would expect from this Real Madrid team & they could have lost the game. Yes, the 3º points are certainly important!
