Real Madrid is visiting Manchester City from the Champions League after the 2-1 defeat. Johan Derksen sets up afterwards in the commentary SBS6 are arrows against Eden Hazard, who was totally invisible the Citizens and van Derksen should have been replaced before half time. That eventually happened in the 83rd minute.
“I actually thought the worst was Hazard”, Derksen opens his scathing speech. “The big games are decided by the big boys anyway.

Real Madrid lost to two major mistakes by Raphäel Varane, who gave both goals as good as gifts to Manchester City. “It is terrible for that boy, because he is entirely responsible for the defeat on his own.
