This Tuesday, the Madrid dailies Marca and AS strongly criticize UEFA after the unsuccessful draw for the knockout stages of the Champions League. But the opposition between Real and PSG still offers the local press the opportunity to display its serenity in the Kylian Mbapp file.
Madrid’s UEFA draw sparks a lot of ink
Unsurprisingly, UEFA’s procedural error on Monday during the first draw for the knockout stages of the Champions League made the headlines of Madrid sports dailies this Tuesday morning. In the Spanish capital, we cannot digest the result of the second draw …
