PEEEP! PEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEP!

THAT IS THAT AS REAL MADRID CONFIRMS THEIR FAVOURITE STATUS WITH A COMFORTABLE WIN OVER MANCHESTER UNITED... LUKAKU WILL NEED TO MORE CLINICAL IF UNITED ARE TO CHALLENGE THE TOP SIDES, AND MOURINHO NEEDS TO DECIDE IF HE WANTS A BACK THREE OR A BACK FOUR 

REAL MADRID ARE A SCARY, SCARY FOOTBALL TEAM. 

THAT'S ALL FOR ME FOLKS, ANIRUDH MENON SIGNING OUT... 

TOODLE OOO!
...
96' The ball is on it's way to the International space station now
...
95' Rashford sends in another free kick that is once again headed away easily... Ronaldo then does supremely well to roll Valencia and win a freekick off the Ecuadorian. I wonder who'll take it. 
...
94' Matic sends the ball into the box - and Ramos heads clear with absurd ease... Rashford then goes into the box as Vazquez does supremely well to draw a foul out of the frustrated United man
...
93' OH RAMOOOOS! A free header in the box from a Kroos delivery and the ball goes miles wide. How very unusual. 
...
92' Madrid stream forward and Vazquez sends Darmian for a sandwich with a sublime swivel of his hips before picking out Asensio. The Spaniard's shot is going in before a superb save from De Gea keeps United in the game. 
...
91' Seven minutes added on. Valencia sends in superb ball that finds a backpedaling Fellaini - whose header is straight at Navas
...
90' Lukaku loses the ball... after taking a foul throw. HOW DOES A PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALLER NOT KNOW HOW TO THROW  A FOOTBALL
...
89' Marcelo bombs forward and tries to pick Ronaldo in the centre - but Valencia stands in his way. From the corner, Ramos sends the ball back to Iberia. 
...
88' Cristiano Ronaldo is using all his wiles to make sure United's momentum is stopped - he wins a smart foul off Lindelof. 
...
85' Sergio Ramos body-checks Paul Pogba with absolutely no intention but to stop the Frenchman in his tracks. From the freekick, Rashford tries to catch Navas out - and the Costa Rican almost carries the ball into the net!!! 
...
84' Carvajal gets into the book for tugging on Rashford and the young man will take it from what can only be described as David Beckham territory... he sends it into Greece.
...
82' Real Madrid counter at supreme pace - thanks to a lovely reverse ball in the middle of the park by Asensio. Corner for Madrid and it's substitution time... Karim Benzema is taken off, and on in his stead comes CRISTIANO RONALDO!
...
81' OH WOW OH WOW. Darmian's long ball is controlled on his chest with typical excellence by Fellaini who then lays it off to Mkhitaryan. The Armenian slips in Rashford with a lovely ball that he tries to pass into the far corner - but Navas saves superbly
...
80' Valencia tries to pick out Lukaku, but that man Ramos is right there - 
...
78' Fellaini is getting bandaged up like he's Tutankhamun!!! The man's got cojones, though, he'll play despite his nose having started to bleed like a leaky faucet 
...
76' Lukaku chases a hopeful punt forward and does well to squeeze out a cross from which Rashford wins a throw-in... the ball is pinged in by Matic from which Fellaini smashes the ball into the stratosphere and Ramos's noggin. OUCH - both hard men look in considerable pain 
...
75' Substitutions for Madrid as the exciting Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez come on for Gareth Bale and Isco. 
...
73' Drinks break now - and Mourinho has a final chance to inspire an unlikely comeback from his side
...
71' Fellaini sends a lovely cross in that is cleared away by Ramos- United have a freekick that Rashford takes but Madrid clear that without much bother as well, 
...
70' Corner for United as Rashford runs into Carvajal.., the young man will take it himself. 
...
69' Pogba and Fellaini try to work the ball into the box, but Benzema does his tracking back well - and it's Madrid's ball to lose yet again. 
...
67' Smalling heads Bale's pony-tailed noggin' instead of the ball, and that's a freekick for Madrid and a painful knock for the poor Welshman
...
66' A silly pass from Marcelo lets Mkhitaryan run forward and United pass the ball around rather well. Till Fellaini strays offside. 
...
64' Carvajal charges into Darmian and lets the Italian off a cul-de-sac that he and Matic had worked themselves into. 
...
UNITED ARE BACK IN IT!! Nemanja Matic smashed one in and Navas can only parry it onto the path of Romelu Lukaku who this time does not miss the tap in. 
...
62' GOOAAAAAAAAAAL! LUKAKUUU!!!!!
...
60' OH LORD!! THE CROSSBAR IS STILL SINGING... GARETH BALE RUNS ONTO A SUPERB CASEMIRO THROUGH BALL BEFORE ABSOLUTELY SMACKING THE BALL ONTO THE WOODWORK. The ball bounces around and Lindelof makes sure Benzema doesn't tap it in
...
59' Rashford sends in a lovely little cross that is headed off Lukaku's forehead by an excellent Ramos header. Great defending from the Madrid captain, there
 
...
57' United are going to lump it long, aren't they? They do try that, but the ball bounces off Fellaini's afro - not unlike how it would bounce off a banyan tree - and Madrid have the ball yet again
...
55' Real Madrid are toying with the opposition right now as they ping it around with supreme ease... United make a substitution as Marouane Fellaini is thrown on for Ander Herrera. 
...
53' HOW! HOW! HOW! Valencia pinged in a lovely ball that found Pogba in the middle of the box ALL FREE but the Frenchman heads it straight at Navas... the ball drops to Lukaku - who proceeds to smash the ball straight into the stratosphere from four yards. Even Alexander the Great is laughing in his grave
...
OH WOW. JUST WOW. OH WOW. Isco and Bale play a lovely one-two that CARVES United apart with the ease of a steaming hot knife going through melting butter... before Isco passes it into the back of the net. LOVELY, LOVELY, GOAL. 
...
52' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOALL!! ISCOOOOOO DISCOOOOOOO!
...
51' Bale and Marcelo are pinning United back before the left back sends one into the box that's calmly headed away by Matic. United then proceed to lose the ball with a careless pass. United have been sloppy on many an occasion tonight. 
...
48' OH!! LOVELY, LOVELY BALL FROM POGBA SENDS RASHFORD screaming into the 2nd half, but Casemiro does just what's required to make sure he can't slip in LUkaku. Lovely stuff from the underrated Brazilian. 
...
47' OH!!!! TONI KROOS HAS A GO WITH HIS LEFT FOOT... but De Gea does supremely well to palm it away... Madrid win a succession of corners after MArcelo's shot is deflected off Smalling.
...
46'  Modric plays an absolutely lovely ball straight out to Benzema - and the Frenchman squares it into the box, lovely little ball, but Smalling makes sure Bale can't get a shot away
...
PEEP! WE'RE OFF AGAIN!

Jesse Lingard has been taken off for Marcus Rashford!! United are GOING for this!
...
Akash Mishra has chimed in with - "Getting a bit frustrated over choosing loyalty tonight which is just because of that one guy... Man utd is the first crush while Real Madrid is the love lady!! Already feeling nostalgic about Ronaldo playing against utd!!!"

Well, you support only ONE club, my man. Best enjoy this as a neutral, I guess!
...
Well, Shankar, Manchester United would have been happy with a 0-0 at halftime, and if not for that goal (offside, wasn't it) it might have been. They've conceded the wings; surprisingly, and Real Madrid have dominated the possession. United have had a few great chances and they've not been too shabby when they have moved forward...

As for Ronaldo, I'd always start him: but with two clasicos coming up over the next week, this might be the ideal situation for him and Madrid. Zidane has shown the world he knows best doesn't he. 
...
PEEEP! PEEEP! HALF-TIME

The ref blows his whistle to bring to close a rather entertaining first 45 in Skopje... the second half promises to be interesting; especially if Marcus Rashford comes on sooner rather than later

...
47' Isco's dinked ball into the box is utterly wasteful... 
...
46' Two minutes added on... Valencia swings a ball in and Madrid hack the ball clear... before sending Isco charging forward...
...
45' Lingard swings the ball in but Lukaku's header is straight at Navas. 
...
44' Mkhitaryan tries to ping it into Lukaku but the two are on different wavelengths. Pogba charges back to win the ball back with a superb tackle and United come forward again...  
...
43' Modric steams into the box but Matic wins that foot race, the ball squeezes out to Benzema who smashes it at goal - but De Gea saves. If only that fax machine was working in 2015...
...
42' Lingard gets into the ref's naughty book for steaming into Isco from behind... he argues his case vociferously but that's always a yellow. 
...
41' Mkhitaryan pings a nice little pass to Valencia whose cross into the box is headed away by Varane.
