Controversial VAR assisted penalty given and disallowed , Morata’s goal of the season disallowed and VAR assisted penalty wasn’t given to Atletico Madrid. Some decisions were questionable but nothing to take away from Realmadrid’s team performance. Casemiro was excellent as Bale and Benzema.
Saturday’s Madrid Derby has a touch of French flavour like never before. There could be up to five French players on the pitch ( three for Atletico, two for Madrid ) when things kick off at the Wanda Metropolitano, where karim Benzema and Antoine Griezmann will be charged with finding the goals and leading their respective sides to victory.
Realmadrid are through to the semi finals of Copa after completing a 7-3 aggregate over Girona.
Realmadrid’s coach Santiago Solari celebrated his first trophy and Realmadrid won the trophy for the third time consistently.

Modric named the winner of the 2018’s Ballon d’or. Anyways Raphael Varrane and Griezman has been prolific this year both of them won World cup and European troffies.
On the other hand,Modric has not ended the regin of the two legends Messi and Ronaldo, he only interrupted it. I expect one of them to win it for the next year.
