Real Madrid more unsafe without Ronaldo - Dani Alves

"Ronaldo doesn't only improve Juve, but the whole of Italian football, and as far as the Champions League goes, I agree with [Lionel] Messi that Juve, with Ronaldo, are an even stronger candidate to win it", ESPN reported.

"Obviously, it's going to be a little different from having such a big player there", Bale said in an interview with the Daily Mail.

"Now it's a bit more hard than it was before - before it was complicated but focused a lot on Cristiano, and now it's a bit more risky, at least [in terms of] how I see football and my concept of this game".

"Now they play more as a team".

Alisson's fantastic start to life at Liverpool was slightly marred by a freaky error against Leicester City, but the Reds remain unbeaten this season and have conceded only two goals so far in five matches. "He's very professional and always wants to win, even in the training games", Ozil added. "We're ready for it".

Deadly Florence Wreaks Havoc in Carolinas as Death Toll Rises
The storm once known as Hurricane Florence has killed 20 people, trapped hundreds more and made parts of the Carolinas impassable. Large segments of the major corridor also were closed in North Carolina, making north-south travel subject to long detours.

Madrid's all-time top goalscorer Ronaldo was crucial to the club's three consecutive Champions League wins under former coach Zinedine Zidane, although it was Bale who scored twice against Liverpool in the 3-1 triumph in May's Kiev final.

"This year I have a good feeling, things are improving here and they are doing well, there are things that are changing and people are understanding a bit of what this game is about".

Bale was coy on the question of whether or not his goal was superior to Ronaldo's, saying: "It's not for me to say!" Bale said, "Angry. Quite angry, to be honest".

Bale and Real may have been delighted to cruise to their third successive Champions League title, but the Welshman admitted he felt sorry for his rival on that night.
