Shakhtar vs Real Madrid by FP
Benitez has taken a lot of the stick for the result and his long term future is in doubt already, but what I took out of the match was that it was a case of Barcelona being that good as opposed to Real Madrid being that bad. Barcelona played at a very high tempo and were first to every single ball, they made it impossible for Real Madrid to play football and their superstars did not get chance to get into the game at all - simply because Real never had the ball.
Away in Ukraine will be a different match entirely. Shakhtar will allow Real time on the ball to play football, and I imagine Real will have the majority of possession and be able to build attacks effectively. Striker Karim Benzema will now be closer to full fitness after making his return at the weekend, as will Ronaldo and Bale who both missed out on playing for their countries during the international break. All three should start and I expect Real Madrid to bounce back with three points. The top two positions in this group should belong to Real and Paris St Germain in that order, with Real tightening their grip on top spot with a win here.
