Another day, another testament to consistent powerful play. Bayern Munich, the underdogs in this tie arrived at the Bernabeu to face a Real Madrid team firing on all cylinders. Fresh off of their win at Barcelona, the Galaticos needed to win 1-0 or by two goals if Bayern scored.

There is so much that needs to happen for a player to stand out or come out of his shell. If you have ever played soccer you understand that team cohesion, player quality, planning, club management, finances, individual technique, coaching, junior/base squads as well as many other events influence a player’s rise or failure. With that said, I think it is best to judge a players ease on the field, technique, vision, ease with the ball rather than their club victories.
