Fitting, indeed! The boys smacked in 5 goals against Deportivo to give our legendary #5 a fantastic welcome as he helmed his first match.
Gareth Bale may find himself feeling a bit more settled as he netted a hat trick (22′, 49′, 63′) and Benz got a brace (15′, 90+1′). Cris was unlucky in scoring, but did make two assists. We also had our first clean sheet since October 2015! (Video)
That picture of Marcelo might as well have been me after the match. I felt lighter and happier. The boys seemed in a similar mood. What did you think?
Fresh starts are a good thing. Let’s hope we continue to build on the mood and momentum of yesterday. (And tomorrow is the Ballon D’Or. Go Cris go!)
Hala Madrid y nada mas!
