Real Madrid were aware of their progression through to sbo333 the knockout phase of the Champions League prior to kick-off, yet first place was still up for grabs and Santiago Solari surprised many by leaving Isco out of his squad.The coach later defended his decision by suggesting the situation called for it. "There are specific decisions for specific moments," he explained in his post-match press conference after the 2-0 win."We are making decisions and that's it, they are almost always sporting except in rare cases, but that doesn't apply here."We're here to give everything and who starts and who is on the bench is a fictitious problem that doesn't exist." sbo333
Marcos Llorente did start and his performance in the Italian capital was impressive, yet the Spaniard is another midfielder who has struggled to make an impact this term and it's difficult for some to understand why he wasn't involved in the defeat to Eibar."That was also a decision, and we're here to make those decisions," Solari said."Sometimes we get it right and sometimes we make mistakes, it's easy to see things after the game."I am very happy with Llorente's performance, he's very disciplined and he worked very hard."We're all happy for him."Cengiz Under had the best chance of the first half, but the Turkish forward blazed over from little over five yards out, and Los Blancos responded in the second half much to the delight of their coach."Matches last 90 minutes and we knew how to mature over the course," he said. "We worked hard in the first half, but were more precise in the second. "It's true that they had a chance to change the match, but the first time we had such a chance we did what we had to do."The result means Real Madrid top the group and will be a top seed in the next round. sbo333
