Another Real Madrid game yesterday, another game Gareth Bale started on the bench.
But this wasn’t just another game; this was the second leg of the Champions League semifinals. For Real Madrid, this was the most important game of the season. It’s the only trophy they still have a chance to win. The fact Gareth Bale started this game on the bench and didn’t even play at all in the first leg is telling. It’s telling no matter what Zinedine Zidane tells you.
Hello everyone! We have a normal slate this weekend for the first time in a couple weeks. All 20 teams are in action. Next week we back to some double dipping action! So if you have been saving that free hit, it'll be a good time to use it. If not, maybe think of not using your transfer to stock up for next week. Here are some blokes to pick up:
3 Blokes To Pick Up
Dusan Tadic (Southampton):
With just a few weeks remaining in the 2017-18 Premier League season, we are quickly winding down towards one of the most anticlimactic final days of all-time. If Tottenham collapse, Chelsea might yet play themselves into the top four, and Southampton could still manage to avoid the drop — just look at what Newcastle have accomplished over the last four games.
Manchester City’s season took a blow with defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday. Combined with the second-half collapse to rival Manchester United last weekend, things were about as dismal as they could be for a team with a 13-point lead in the Premier League. But a 3-1 win for Manchester City vs Tottenham on Saturday at Wembley Stadium showed Pep Guardiola’s side is still the best in England.
Denmark are 80-1 outsiders at the World Cup, and that makes sense — Nicklas Bendtner remains the nation’s premier striker. However, you could waste $5 in a myriad of dumber ways than by throwing it on the Danish Dynamite. Here’s how Denmark could win the Cup: Kasper Schmeichel brings the 2015-16 Leicester City hoodoo, and Christian Eriksen is just the best version of himself for a month.
It’s possible that these things happen, and your $5 becomes $400.
As evidence, I submit the above video, which is just Eriksen doing Eriksen things earlier today.
