    Tierney omission explained

    Tierney's omission from the Real starting xi has been explained.

    Boss Alguacil has revealed they are managing the Scot's minute load, along with other stars.

    He said: "Tierney and Zubimendi have stayed inside, due to load management. Zakharyan… it seems like he has the flu, I hope that tomorrow he will be able to train.

    "If we want to compete in the Champions League again next year, it is games like these that we have to win. Those in the league, which are what will allow us to play in the Champions League again next year.

    "It is very clear to me. At the same time, finishing the Champions League match I was already talking to the players about the Getafe match, because it is much more important.

    "The players' chip has changed as soon as they finished the Inter match."
