RB Leipzig now leading the Bundesliga. I love Emil Forsberg, what a player he is. Dortmund beat Bayern too so it's not going to be a walk in the park for Ancelotti, which I thought from the beginning. A lot of people talking crap about how Pep walked the league because it was weak, well now Ancelotti is there and isn't really finding life that easy. Ancelotti even with his great AC Milan team didn't win many league titles and was better in Europe. Maybe his luck will come now in the CL anyway.
CR7 back to his best too. He was IMMENSE in the Madrid derby, but the game shouldn't have been 0-3. The free kick was pure luck, as the wall didn't do its job properly. Not sure about that penalty decision either. But in the end he got his hattrick and had a slew of other chances that he created. La Liga looks like it's going Real's way at the moment, but the season is long.
To be fair, last year Bayern didn't have Leipzig as a rival, so it was slightly easier for Pep. Still it seems as if Bayern isn't as dominant as they were in the last seasons and actually thats something really good. The Bundesliga was extremely boring in the last few years.
Since I'm a Real fan I'm also happy about Ronaldo's hattrick, although it was ofc an incredibly lucky one (a deflected freekick, a doubtful penalty and a goal for which Bale did most of the work). This weekend could be absolutely crucial for LaLiga since Atletico is already 9 points behind Real and might already be out of the fight for the title and Barca is already 4 points down as well. Thats not a big advantage but these two teams sometimes play such dominant seasons that 4 points should not be underestimated.
