Ronaldo deserves Ballon d’Or not Modric, says Casemiro – football news

Cristiano Ronaldo should win the Ballon d’Or this year rather than Luka Modric, according to the Croatia star’s Real Madrid team-mate Casemiro.

Isco backed Modric to win the prize for the first time after he shone in Madrid’s 3-0 Champions League defeat of Roma on Wednesday.

Modric, who won the Golden Ball at the World Cup after leading Croatia to the final, created Madrid’s second goal with a perfectly weighted pass for Gareth Bale.

In sharp contrast, Ronaldo was sent off on his first Champions League appearance for Juventus after clashing with Valencia defender Jeison Murillo in an off-the-ball incident.

Ronaldo’s goals helped to fire Madrid to a third consecutive Champions League crown before he left for Juventus and Casemiro feels the Portugal captain deserves a sixth Ballon d’Or.

“Luka’s year has been spectacular,” Casemiro told reporters in a post-match interview.

“But in my opinion I would give it to Cristiano Ronaldo because he has been the best throughout last season.”

A three-goal win against Roma at the Santiago Bernabeu gave three-time reigning European champions Madrid three Group G points in their first game in the competition under new head coach Julen Lopetegui.

Isco’s perfect free-kick gave Los Blancos the lead on the stroke of half-time before Bale secured the result, to which substitute Mariano Diaz added late gloss.

“Last year they reached the semi-finals, almost got to the final, we have to value the match we have played,” Casemiro added.

“I would say it was almost perfect, I’ll keep the goal chances that we have created. We will correct [mistakes], the important thing is to create 30 goal chances.

“With Luka, Toni [Kroos] and Isco we have known each other for a long time, the quality they have is impressive, everything is easier, I know them and we feel very comfortable.”

Courtois or Navas? Lopetegui tight-tipped on Champions League starter – football news

Real Madrid goalkeeper Julen Lopetegui refused to say whether Keylor Navas will be handed a first-team return in Wednesday’s Champions League opener against Roma.

Navas was Madrid’s first choice in each of their consecutive Champions League triumphs but has lost his spot with the European titleholders to close-season signing Thibaut Courtois.

One option for Lopetegui would be to select Navas as his cup goalkeeper – splitting duties in the same manner as Barcelona once did between Claudio Bravo and Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Although he again praised Costa Rica international Navas at his pre-match news conference, the former Spain boss refused to commit to this course of action.

“Navas is training very well,” Lopetegui said. “He’s doing what we thought he would do and what he’s going to do throughout the season – fight and compete.

“I’m not going to say anything about [which goalkeeper will play]. We have fantastic options in goal and whatever decision we make is going to be a good one.

“I’m not going to say who is going to play and who is not going to play.”

Lopetegui moved to allay fears of fatigue surrounding star midfielder Luka Modric.

The playmaker inspired Croatia’s run to the World Cup final and was named UEFA Player of the Year following his recent efforts for club and country.

However, the 32-year-old was substituted after an hour of Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Athletic Bilbao and has not completed 90 minutes this season.

“After the World Cup players come back at different levels and different times,” Lopetegui added.

“I think they are back to their best now. We’ll always take the best decision for the team.

“He’s had a summer of highs and lows but he’s getting through it now and training and playing. I think he’s more prepared with each passing day.”

Benzema: Real Madrid favourites to win Champions League – football news

Karim Benzema insists Real Madrid are favourites to win the Champions League this season, despite the departure of the club’s record goalscorer this summer.

Ronaldo joined Juventus during the transfer window, ending a nine-year spell in Spain, and scored his first brace for the Old Lady as they beat Sassuolo 2-1 at the weekend.

His move to Turin has clearly boosted their chances of winning the European competition, which Real have established something of a stranglehold on in recent years.

Real have won the past three competitions, and Benzema is confident that, even without the Portugal international, they will be able to taste success for an unprecedented fourth time come May.

“This competition is another level, all the matches are important, there is no easy one, and it’s one thing I like: Real Madrid is the best club in the world, every year you have to succeed,” he told Codere, per AS.

“We know there are a lot of strong rivals, but if I have to say a favourite, it’s always going to be Real Madrid, in this club the goal is always to try to win everything and play well, we have to sacrifice a lot to always be victorious.”

Real kick off the defence of their European crown this week, when they host Roma at Santiago Bernabeu, and Benzema is wary of the talents of the Italian club.

“As always, the first game at home is very important, we have to have the ball and get more rhythm than them.

Article continues below

“Roma are a good team with very good players.”

Benzema has scored four goals in Real’s opening four games of the season, netting twice against both Girona and Leganes.

Supporters will be hopeful that the Frenchman can deliver the goods once again on Wednesday, as Los Blancos look to bounce back from a disappointing 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao on Saturday in La Liga.
