That takes its toll.
“Real Madrid had everything in their favour: injured players like Neymar, Robben, Boateng, the referees, the most important player in Liverpool who they hurt, theBayern and Liverpool goalies who messed up… It looks like witchcraft.“Barcelona have been winning titles, but Real are winning the Champions League.”
