Cris greeted an old pal at the team hotel: David Pawlaczyc! For those who don’t remember the amazing story, David was in a 3 month coma in 2013 after an accident and awakened after listening to one of CR7’s goals. They originally met in 2014. It’s great to see David looking healthy and happy.
The starting XI for the match:
Keylor Navas, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kroos, Benzema, Bale, Coentrão, Kovacic and Morata.
On the bench:
Casilla, Lucas Vazquez, Mariano, Marco Asensio, Isco, Danilo and Tejero.
Let’s do this, Blancos!
