The Real Madrid won against the Inter of Milan his first final in this Champions League that so much has complicated by fault of the tropiezos against the Shakhtar Donetsk and the Borussia Mönchengladbach. The merengues added his first three points in what it goes of competition and now carry 4 in total, the same that the Ukrainians and 1 less than the Germans, by what follows having the first place of the group to shot.

The meeting in front of the Italians supposed the first face or cross of the season, since a defeat or even a tie would have supposed to approach a lot to the dispute of the Europe League from the phase of groups. Add a point would have been to remain to 2 of the Shakhtar and to 3 of the Mönchengladbach, taking into account that the next week the whites have to visit to the Inter in Giuseppe Meazza, with all what this supposes.

The interistas, by the way, have remained with alone 2 points, last of group, but still aspire to classify . The ones of Antonio Conte need to win at least two of the three parties that has to contest in this phase of groups to put second or third. The Madrid seems that it also goes to need the same to try remain leaders of group, since it is likely that the germanos win like minimum his crash in front of the Ukrainians.

What is indisputable is that win to the Inter has done that the Madrid save, at least by the moment, the bullet of the Europe League or of the total elimination. Lose would have left to the ones of Zidane with 1 point, to the Inter with 5, to the Shakhtar with 4 and to the Mönchengladbach with the 5 that has. In other words they would have remained to a step to remain was, since it would have needed to win practically all what subtracted him to dream with classifying .

Rodrygo Goes Avoided that his team fell to the abyss to have to struggle contracorriente to try at least go in in the second maximum competition of clubs of Europe. Contest the Europe League or not playing at all would suppose a failure of biblical proportions for the madridistas, accustomed this last decade to win Champions or at least to compete them until the semifinals. Unfortunately for them, now no longer they give fear and have turned into a team that has credited to fall in eighth.

The Madrid no longer gives fear in Europe

The whites carry two consecutive years remaining out of Europe in eighth of final, in 2019 in front of the Ajax and in 2020 against the Manchester City. The ones of Concha Spine no longer impose respect in Europe and this is carrying them to have to suffer only to happen of phase of groups. A hard news after winning so many 'Orejonas', but that the merengues will have to assume to launch to the mud and try classify and can be in these eighth of League of Champions.
