Vinicius needs to calm down, he's more and more agitated and his behaviour with refs isn't tolerable. We know he's going through a lot in some games but it can't excuse everything.
To be fair he didn't really deserve that card, I'd be furious as well if I were him.

Why was he carded though?

Liverpool seemed to have made you look better than you are
Liverpool's defense is terrible, and we know Real Madrid is a different team in the CL, but people who frequently watch La Liga know they're just not good, I don't think Real fans here are surprised. Modric is still hands down their best midfielder and he's 37, he can't make it happen twice a week.

He gets riled up too easily and doesn’t focus on the game. Very annoying and seemingly no one is telling him to stop.

That was some lightning in a bottle stuff, we have been poor all season and even an injury ridden Barca has it easy against us. Fair play to them.

Barca player down in the box yet the Madrid attackers were still trying to keep in line with the defenders 5 yards in front of him.

That's a hard one because he used to be far calmer, but since the abuse/racist stuffs started he's on very short fuse. Hard to blame him but he needs pick his battles. When it's only about football, he can't react that way.

Why wasn't De Jong carded too then?
Vinicius and De Jong held each other, that was a foul but nothing crazy. De Jong didn't throw Vinicius on the floor with a judo move though, I think it was pretty obvious who went overboard.

So no player booked after Vini? Not Carvajal, not Araujo, not Gavi..

Gavi is having a mare. Fouling a lot, missing a lot, not marking his player, when he's out of it he's really out.

Didn't de Jong try to grab Vinicius by his thigh first? Pretty sure that judo move preceded the headlock takedown by Vini Jr.

Pathetic how dangerous Barca look going forward, and how we have done feck all. This would be a thumping if they had all their players.

Can someone explain to me why Gavi is so highly rated?
When he's in tune he's impressive because he can be technicallly good with a huge energy, he sometimes looks like he's everywhere on the pitch. But he has consistency issues (which is a normal at his age) and failed to rise in many important games.

I've never been a fan of this player to be honest, I right Pedri far higher.

We are playing very bad. We are too rushed and now too much focused on the referee. Although I think that if I were at the Bernabéu tonight I would be as well protesting everything.
On the other hand, Gavi makes countless small fouls without a yellow.
Whatever team it is, repetition should be punished more.
As usual Araújo is eating up Vini.
Let's see what they do in the second half

A miracle that we lead here....We play horribly as I expected and Madrid defeats itself at the moment.

Who cares about the ref, Real should focus on their game which has been absolute trash.

I wouldn’t mind losing to a fantastic Barca side, this is just incredibly frustrating as they are missing all their key players and still bumming us.

Despite Madrid bossing the Scousers over the last few years, I still don’t trust the feckers 100% to see the job through in the return leg at the Bernabeu. Madrid are capable of having a wobbler at home from time to time and this average-as-feck Barcelona side are causing them all sorts of issues tonight again.

Nah this Madrid side only cares about CL so will always turn up for that. As they're old now they just don't bother with league and cups as much

Juventus and Chelsea almost did it :nervous: :lol:

So that is the Copa gone as well. Ancelotti really copying his first stint. Wins the CL in the first season and feck all the second, gets a trashing in the process (4-0 Atleti loss, 4-0 Barca loss). I wouldn’t be surprised if this was 0-3 as well.

What happened to Barca? Though they would at least dominate possession against Madrid but they sit back and let them have the ball. Is it 'just' because Lewandowski, Dembele and Pedri are missing?
