'It's not luck': Barca chief Jordi Cruyff praises Real Madrid

Barcelona football advisor heaped praise on Barcelona's perennial rivals Real Madrid following their relatively impressive season, particularly in the Champions League.

"Real Madrid's Champions League run? When they've been doing it for several knockout rounds in a row, it's not luck," Cruyff told the media.

"It's a quality they have of belief, of character, of mentality.

"You have to have a bit of luck, but when something is repetitive, it can't be luck."

I strongly disagree with Cruyff in this case. Real Madrid may not be riding luck in the Champions League, but they've been lucky with injuries. Benzema and Vinicius have barely been injured this season.

Compare with Barca, who missed most of their key players due to injuries, the likes of Fati, Pedri and Dembele. Braithwaite's fine start to the season was halted by injuries. Sergi Roberto is yet to recover.

Do you agree with Cruyff about Real Madrid?
