Isco makes Real Madrid starting lineup for 1st time under Solari

Reports: Real Madrid slap whopping €700m price tag on Chelsea target Isco linked with Liverpool move as Real frustrations grow
| 09 December, 2018, 00:09

But there could be an arrangement for both parties; after all, Isco will barely play under Solari and unless his attitude changes dramatically, he won't be back with the first team any time soon.

Having left the newly-crowned Ballon d'Or victor Luka Modric out of the 18, Solari had to be patient and it was not until the 33rd minute that the La Liga giants got their noses in front when Asensio ran on to full-back Dani Carvajal's ball and fired into the bottom corner of Pedro Luis' goal.

I am thrilled for Isco, for his two goals and it is a shame about the other one that the goalkeeper kept out.

Marco Asensio's double and Javi Sanchez's debut goal earned a 3-0 half-time lead at the Bernabeu.

Solari also addressed Isco's Instagram post in which the attacking midfielder asked fans if he looked overweight, and took the opportunity to speak on the importance of team selection.


Real Madrid boss Santiago Solari has described the winter transfer window as "not his area", casting doubt over whether Los Blancos will make a move to strengthen their squad in January. The first shot was parried away, but the rebound fell right onto his feet, and he made no mistake, getting his goal.

"I was very sorry that he missed the goal in the first half, because it would have been a great one". Here are the talking points from the game.

Kroos' injury woe - along with the continued absence of Casemiro - has meant Marcos Llorente and Dani Ceballos have enjoyed game time.

Superb. What a lovely, lovely player. We train hard so that everyone is at their best and focused.
