If you were to create a sub-point to the 5 mentioned, it would be the removal of Felipe Luis through injury. Up until he got subbed off he was arguably Atletico's best player along with Godin and was putting out fires right across the back line. Tracking runners and keeping Bale + Carvajal rather pinned back and under wraps. In fact Real weren't really up to much and looked the poorer of the two sides for a large period of the game, the second he had to go off injured the momentum switched and Real started gaining free reign to bomb down the left backs side of the pitch. Not to mention it was the man who replaced Luis, Alderweireld, who lost Ramos off the corner for the equaliser and also looked like Bambi on marbles when trying to defend Bale's header.

tonyv25 - Cristiano Ronaldo used to play for Manchester United. That will ALWAYS be the pre-set agenda when comments and opionions are expressed about him.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish

rop Rooney (he's so disappointing, overrated and overpaid), and play Di Maria and RVP upfront, much like the set up at the Netherlands team with Roben and RVP...
