Real Madrid on the verge of exiting the Champions League in the group stage


On a day when two of the last three Champions League winners could have sealed their places in the last 16 of this season’s competition, Real Madrid made sure that he was not even guaranteed a group third place and a later place in the knockout stages of the Europa League.
While a shorthanded Liverpool managed to progress, with a 1-0 win over Ajax, Real Madrid slipped to a second loss to Shakhtar Donetsk in the group stage this season. It seemed like last week Madrid had done the hard work. After slightly defeating Inter Milan 3-2 at home, he went on to win at San Siro, edging out Antonio Conte’s side, who lost discipline and focus. There were signs of promise from Eden Hazard and Martin Odegaard and a feeling he would survive a poor start to competition. But Saturday’s home loss to Alaves was a reminder of just how bad this group is.
