Luka Modric reckons that there is a bit of biasness against Real Madrid in the Footballing world.
As per Modric, nobody cares when Madrid has to suffer because of the errors committed by the match officials, but, if such errors provide any kind of advantage to Madrid, all hell breaks loose.
Modric disagrees to the popular opinion that the result of the European Cup quarter final tie between Madrid and Munich would have been different if it was not for a string of refereeing errors.
The veteran playmaker opines that Madrid was a superior team to Munich throughout the tie and it was only fitting that they ended on the right side of the stick. To take the credit away from them by pointing out the refereeing errors is completely wrong.
Modric recalls that refereeing errors had happened during the first leg as well which had been held in the German capital. The home team was awarded an unfair penalty there. They eventually missed it, but, nevertheless, it had given them an opportunity. Read more “Luka Modric on Real Madrid”

A hospitable setting during the game against Ukraine is important for them to be allowed in subsequent games as this is the first time they are allowed into a home game since the ban.
The Prime Minister asked that State resources be employed to ensure a trouble-free match.
“We must all take responsibility so that everything passes in order,” Plenkovic said. Read more “PRIME MINISTER ASKS FANS TO BEHAVE IN WC QUALIFIER”
