Camavinga, a beast
The statistics make it clear that Madrid got into the semifinals being inferior to their rival in the second leg. Data that Ancelotti must handle to try not to play with fire on successive occasions. One of the lessons that the Italian technician should write down in his notebook is knowing how to refresh the engine room. This Tuesday the Camavinga entrance was key for Real Madrid’s comeback. At 19, the Frenchman plays without complexes, as if he were a true veteran. Character, grit, quality, muscle, physique… his match against Chelsea was extraordinary.

Ancelotti must react and make decisions. The initial party plan did not work. Yesterday the changes saved the tie, but until the 0-3 did not come, the Italian did not know how to react. The divine gene will not always appear to solve a critical situation. Or if? With this team football logic has no place.
