Santiago Solari Is The Man To Lead Real Madrid To Champions League Glory (Again)

This evening Real Madrid have confirmed the appointment of Santiago Solari on a three-year deal, which runs until the summer of 2021. The hierarchy at the club have been staggered by the turnaround that the Argentine has produced, given the mess Los Blancos were in under Julen Lopetegui.

However, he is now the permanent gaffer and once again Madrid are in full flow. As the temporary boss, Madrid won four games out of four, scoring 15 goals and conceding just two. The departure of Cristiano Ronaldo has made Madrid a different outfit but perhaps more of a team unit, with players such as Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric coming to the fore, along with Gareth Bale.

Now with the international break upon us, half an eye is being kept on what is around the corner for Madrid, especially the Champions League game away at Roma. Of course, Barcelona threw away their two-goal lead in the same competition last season which saw them crash out at the quarter-final stage.

A draw for both teams in that game would all but seal qualification to the knockout stages for both sides but Real Madrid will be going all out for the win in order to top the group. Then we enter the knockout stages where Madrid are the experts.

Just to remind you in case you have been living under a rock, these 10/1 shots to win the Champions League this season have won the last three tournaments. Yes they do not have Cristiano Ronaldo but they have the experience and know how to navigate their way through the latter stages and pressure moments of big tournaments.

This team have not lost a two-legged tie in the Champions League since May 2015 when they were defeated by Juventus in the semi-finals. WIth Solari in charge and every player pulling in the same direction, do not back against the biggest club in the world making it an outstanding four Champions Leagues in a row.
