The stars of Real Madrid including Cristiano Ronaldo greeted the Syrian refugee family whose plight was made famous when they were tripped by a Hungarian camerawoman.
The scene appeared to be set at a sunny Bernabeu for Cristiano Ronaldo to surpass Raul to become Madrid’s all-time top goalscorer.
Both the sides came close to break the deadlock in the first half of the match but all their chances were denied.
Marcelo admits referee Jose Martinez Munuera may have mistakenly disallowed Youssef El-Arabi’s goal for Granada against Real Madrid on Saturday.
The relationship between the Portuguese superstar and Fiorentino Perez has never been the most friendly, but La Confidencial – via the aforementioned report – have published a comment from the club’s president that reportedly annoyed Los Blancos’ No.7 last season.
Granada have one of the worst defensive records in La Liga this season, by giving up seven goals in their first three matches. “He [helped] us win many games so everything I will say about him would be good things”.
“Of course, James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale can also take free-kicks, but they were not there against Granada”.
Bale had to be substituted during Madrid’s 4-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday and the club announced on Thursday morning that tests had shown the Wales global has damaged his calf, according to Soccernet. I love Real Madrid, they’re my favorite team and my whole family’s too. “Three points in the league isn’t enough and it is the league that tells you whether you are playing well or not”, said Athletic coach Ernesto Valverde.
“We knew before the game it could be a hard game, against a good team that counterattacks well, and that was how it was”, Real Madrid coach Rafael Benitez said.
Bale was one of three injury concerns for Benitez in the win over Shakhtar, with Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane also withdrawing early in the game. Ronaldo added “We didn’t get off to the best of starts in La Liga after a draw, but since then we have done well”.
