Real Madrid have got an important win against Viktoria Plzen with a margin of 2-1 in the Group Stage match of UEFA Champions League. With this win, Real Madrid moved to the second position in their Group with 6 points from 3 matches. The group might be a little tricky at the end as AS Roma have already got 6 points and they are situated at the top of the table with better goal difference than Real Madrid. On the other hand, CSKA Moscow are also having 4 points from their three encounters so far.
This win might not be enough for Julen Lopetegui to save his job at Real Madrid. When Emilio Butragueño was asked whether Julen Lopetegui would be at the managerial position of Real Madrid in the upcoming El Clasico, he told
“Yes, yes, [we’re approaching that game] with absolute normality. In situations like this it is very important to stay calm, be united and trust in the players.”
“we hear rumours but we’ll go to the Camp Nou…”.
Real Madrid got the early lead in the match with the goal of Karim Benzema at the 11th minute of the match. Marcelo has doubled the lead for the Los Blancos at the 55th minute of the match. But the Spanish Giants were not able to keep a clean sheet in this match also as Viktoria Plzen put one back when Patrik Hrosovsky scored at the 78th minute. The match has ended with a scoreline of 2-1 in favour of Real Madrid. With this win under their belts, the Los Blancos will gain some confidence ahead of the upcoming El Clasico at Camp Nou.
