Real Madrid Champions League Champion 2021-2022

The Champions League Final became a match that attracted attention among football lovers, because Liverpool's defeat was due to the negligence of the players who were included in the category of great players on the team.

Previously Liverpool failed to win the English league, whose match ended last week, in the final of this season's UCL match had a revenge mission from the Liverpool team.

Liverpool conceded in the first half by Karim Benzema's goal, but the goal was deemed invalid because Benzema was caught offside, and the first half was closed with the score 0-0.

And in the second half Liverpool's side continued to press with an attack dominated by them, and Real Madrid started to come out under pressure.

And in the 59th minute, the Reds' negligence was put to good use by Real Madrid and successfully produced a goal by Vinicius Junior with a pass from Federico Valverde.

Surprised by Real Madrid's goal, the Reds stepped up the pressure, but to no avail. Thibaut Courtois was great and slick with 9 saves. And the match ended with Real Madrid's 1-0 victory and made Real Madrid the UCL winner for the 14th time.

This game garnered a lot of attention and judgment, here are the mistakes that led to Liverpool's defeat:

Waste of Tempo and Domination
Failed to Take Advantage of Domination
After an offside goal by Karim Benzema, the Reds launched a revenge mission. Good dominance resulted in many chances, even the first 20 minutes forced the Madrid goalkeeper to make 4 saves.
In total, the Reds shot against the opponent's goal 24 times but none of them resulted in a goal.

Tempo Change
In the first half Liverpool played with a high tempo and high pressure, making it difficult for Real Madrid to build attacks. This scenario went well throughout the first half causing Madrid to be confined to the field throughout the first half.
But in the second half Liverpool even relaxed the pressure and caused Real Madrid to develop the game. And producing goals for Real Madrid and Liverpool instead trapped the opposing team's game.

Weak in the wing formation
Failed to Anticipate Trent Alexander's Duel - Arnold Vs Vinicius
Trent Alexander-Arnold has indeed become one of Liverpool's mainstay weapons this season through his 2 goals and 9 assists. And weakness while defending is in the spotlight. Where Vinicius' speed is a problem for Alexander Arnold.
And the unfortunate thing approached Liverpool, when Real Madrid had the ball in the middle of the field, it was Trenat Alexander-Arnold who was actually interested in Karim Benzema's movement, so Vinicius was not guarded by the Reds on the right side of defense and scored a goal.

Weakened Full Back Duo
Two fullbacks should be the key to attack but in the final the Reds performed poorly and in the end the attack did not go well.

Real Madrid defeated by Atletico Madrid

Mbappe after masterclass against Madrid

Kylian Mbappe scored the only goal in a crucial UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie between PSG and Real Madrid.

Paris Saint Germain and France superstar Kylian Mbappe has been the talk of the town ever since he burst into the scene for Monaco back in the 2016-17 season where he helped them win the French league. Since then, not a single transfer window has passed without rumours and speculations about where he would end up next, with Real Madrid being the most likely destination.

Mbappe himself has never hidden the fact that he idolizes Portuguese icon Cristiano Ronaldo and would want to follow in his footsteps which fanned more fire to the “Mbappe to Real Madrid” news mill.

On Wednesday, however, Mbappe did not look a wee bit distracted before putting the ball in the Los Blancos’ net in a crucial UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie between PSG and Real Madrid. That proved to be the only goal in the match, putting PSG in an advantageous position heading into the second leg in March.

According to sports journalist Fabrizio Romano’s tweet after the match, Mbappe had put all speculations about his future aside for the time being in order to concentrate on being a PSG player.

“People talk about me and my future, it’s normal – but as a player for Paris Saint-Germain I will give everything I have,” Mbappe had stated according to Fabrizio Romano, before adding, “I can confirm that my future has not yet been decided – and this game with Real Madrid will not change anything.”

It may be mentioned here that during the January transfer window, the Bild had reported that Mbappe was off to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window as a free transfer but from Romano’s tweet it’s clear that Mbappe has dismissed it, even if for the time being.

According to a report from the Sun who themselves quotes Canal+ TV channel, Paris Saint-Germain chief Nasser Al Khelaifi admitted that the French giants have ‘almost no relationship’ with Real Madrid after their Kylian Mbappe pursuit.

Marquinhos Confirms PSG Players Are Ready to Face Real Madrid

MDP Live - Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos commented on the upcoming match between his team and Real Madrid. Ahead of the match, the Brazilian defender made sure the Les Parisiens squad was in a combat-ready position.

It will be a tough match in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 as Paris Saint-Germain are scheduled to host Real Madrid at the Parc de Princes on Wednesday. This match itself is believed by many to be exciting because it will bring together two teams with five-star material.

Ahead of the match, Marquinhos gave news regarding PSG's readiness to face the LaLiga giants. The Brazilian defender claims Les Parisiens have gone through so many moments this season which has had a positive influence on the team's maturity to face important and decisive moments.

"We have struggled since the start of the season," said the player as quoted from the club's official website.

"We've been training every day, we've traveled a lot, we've played a lot of games – some good, some not so good. We've won, sometimes in the last seconds. We can't ignore what we've done.”

"Tomorrow will be a very important game, because it will define our season. Everything we have done so far has given us a bond with each other on the pitch. You can feel that the new players are more comfortable and fully adapted to the squad." .

Gareth Bale has been urged to leave Real Madrid immediately

MDP Live - Gareth Bale's fate has been unclear at Real Madrid since 2019. The departure of Cristiano Ronaldo did not necessarily make Bale number one.

Until now, he still lost his place in the main Madrid squad. This position is clearly not profitable for the Welsh winger's career.

Marca launched, there were messages from family and friends in Cardiff urging Bale to leave Real Madrid immediately. The presence of Carlo Ancelotti is a bit encouraging for Bale.

He had several opportunities to start as a starter and still earns the respect of the Italian coach. On that basis, Bale was asked to leave Madrid with honor.

But unfortunately, even though it is ready to be sold, Gareth Bale is empty of fans. This is completely different from when he moved to Madrid in 2013.

Not Embarrassing

Bale's family and friends think the player still has a chance to leave the club in a good way. Bale is still considered prestigious because he has won four Champions League titles, four Club World Cups, three European Super Cups, two La Liga titles, 3 Copa del Rey trophies and 3 Spanish Super Cups.

Although urgent, but the family wants Bale to make a decision on his own accord. Not in a shameful way.

His family and friends want Bale to leave Madrid with achievements. Not as a player who failed to get a chance to play.

Copa del Rey

Currently, Bale is most likely to be called up to play against Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals. This is because core players like Vinicius, Casemiro and Rodrygo are playing for the Brazilian national team.

In addition, Eden Hazard and Marco Asensio are also injured. This is a great opportunity for Bale to show off.

Lack of interest, Eden Hazard will not leave Real Madrid this month

MDP Live - It was easy for Real Madrid to get Eden Hazard from Chelsea in 2019. But when it comes to selling him to another club, it is a tough matter for Los Merengues.

Hazard performed brilliantly during his seven years at Chelsea. It's clear that anyone who wants his services will need a lot of money to get him away from Stamford Bridge. That's what Real Madrid can fulfill.

The Spanish giants are able to meet the asking price of 100 million euros set by Chelsea for Hazard. Obviously that's a reasonable number, especially since Hazard had only just helped the Blues win the Europa League at the time.

Hazard is expected to be the focus of Real Madrid's striker who is looking for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo. But, instead of becoming a star figure, Hazard actually spent more time in the treatment room due to injury.

Lonely Fans

Once expected to be a star, Hazard is now seen as a burden to be rid of. Real Madrid had to reduce their salary spending and that's why the 30-year-old was on their list.

Unfortunately, there are very few clubs interested in Hazard as reported by Marca. There are only two promising clubs, namely Chelsea and Newcastle. The first name is said to have not been interested in approaching the former.

Newcastle can provide a tempting proposal for Hazard. He is certainly capable of being a savior figure so that the Magpies are not relegated to the Championship division. But from the last report, Hazard is known to be reluctant to move there.

Wait for the End of the Season

Again, according to Marca's report, Hazard is known to be waiting for the right club to take him away from the Santiago Bernabeu. The end of the 2021/22 season is the final benchmark.

If the right offer has not arrived, Hazard is very likely to stay at Los Merengues. But as a consequence, he had to accept a pay cut. Moreover, he had to find a club that was willing to accommodate him with all their might.

Of course it's not easy. It is very difficult to find a club that is interested in 'gambling' with Hazard. Especially if you look at the fact that Hazard has only appeared 59 times and scored five goals in all competitions while strengthening Real Madrid.
