Real Madrid ‘Galactico’ hopeful gets benched, young players shine on Champions League stage

Last night’s UEFA Champions League match between Real Madrid and Inter Milan was a victory for the Spanish giants, but it was a major setback for one of their “star” forwards. Eden Hazard failed to make it to manager Carlo Ancelotti’s starting lineup, and the manager even opted to keep him on the bench in favour of the young talents in the roster when it came to substitution time.

Ancelotti’s decision paid off, after newcomer Eduardo Camavinga latched on to a lob from Uruguay international Fede Valverde. The last-minute summer signing fed Rodrygo Goes, who scored the decisive strike that gave Real Madrid the 1-0 victory over the Italian champions.
