Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, is on a roll. During the national break, the soccer icon scored five goals for Portugal during World Cup qualification, per Yahoo Sports. When he returned to Real Madrid, he led the squad to thrashing Real Betis, 6-1, in a La Liga match. After drawing, 2-2, with their Borussia Dortmund (their biggest rivals in their group) this will be a chance for them to pull away from the Germans.
“We will go into the game strong,” Francisco “Isco” Alarcon, 24, a midfielder for Madrid, said, about both this match and the subsequent rematch on Nov. 2. “We know that these two games will have a big impact on our place at the top of our Champions League group.”
This might also be Isco’s chance to shine. With Luka Modric, 31, and Casemiro, 24, riding the bench due to injury, he was given a rare chance to start in Real’s game against Betis. The risk paid off, as he netted two goals and earned a start in this Champions league game. “Isco is important,” coach Zinedine Zidane, 44, said, per Goal.com. “He has been working hard all along. I’m happy with his goals and with everything he is giving us.”
Hopefully for Legia Warsaw, Isco doesn’t give them any headaches. They lost 6-0 to Dortmund and 2-0 to Sporting. Without a single goal to their name, they have a lot of ground to make up if they have any hopes of somehow advancing. Can they end their dry spell in this match?
