Viktoria Plzen v Real Madrid: Case for Solari appointment will grow

Navas started Madrid's three European fixtures under previous boss Lopetegui but was among the substitutes for Wednesday's victory, which saw the reigning champions rise to the top of Group G, but Solari said he's made the choice to go with Courtois.

The Los Blancos side now have interim boss Santiago Solari in charge and appear to have revived their spirits, ending their win-less run in their 2-0 victory over Real Valladolid last weekend.

"I want to give assists, play, score goals. what a striker does". "We played a very serious game from start to finish, you can not win 5-0 in the Champions League without that". If Solari can continue his winning start into that match, it will be tough to see past Madrid getting what they need to finish top. "Football is about the present and it's the next game that matters", he said, with a trip to Celta Vigo on Sunday next up for Real. After that match, he must either be confirmed as Lopetegui's replacement until the end of the season at least or return to coaching Madrid's Castilla youth team.

"I only think about the next game".

"We are facing up with Solari as coach of Madrid", Casemiro said.

According to court documents, a police investigation determined that Watts "was actively involved in an affair with a co-worker". The girls' bodies were found submerged in an oil tank, and Shanann Watts' body was found in a shallow grave.

"I said it before he was Real Madrid coach and I'll say it again now that he's gone".

Things could have turned out much differently on the night as Real initially struggled in an unorthodox 4-3-3 formation that had Dani Ceballos - in for Luka Modric in one of two changes - fielded just behind Karim Benzema. Los Blancos won their first two games under Solari's leadership, and this will be his first Champions League test.

"But I have to say that Keylor is a man and has all my admiration as a footballer and respect as a man". Madrid were far from convincing in their 2-0 win at home to Real Valladolid at the weekend, with both goals coming within the last ten minutes of the game, but every victory will add a little confidence to what was left by the time Lopetegui departed.
