With no Kylian Mbappé to look forward to, all eyes are now on Eden Hazard, who many of us had written off.
I really like the photo of Carlo Ancelotti surrounded by a group of Real Madrid greats with the veteran Pirri through to the youngest in the snap being Iker Casillas.
For the average football fan, recent examples of VAR's application have added to the belief the system is making life more difficult for decision-makers.
Real Madrid will consider their 2-2 home draw with Elche as two points dropped despite the late equaliser from Éder Militão.
The game itself was nothing to write home about but the extra time was scintillating.
Carlo Ancelotti's style of play has seen his side secure ten wins back-to-back. His team tend to sit deep and launch quick counters with Vinicius' pace at the heart of this strategy.
