Real Madrid camp worried about the state of the team’s defence – report

Despite Real Madrid’s stellar start to the new season, the team is starting to show signs of complacency, as evident in their relatively poor end to the Champions League group stage campaign.

The club have also lost ground in La Liga, even more so after a 3-2 defeat to Rayo Vallecano that helped Barcelona become the league leaders as we head into the final matchday before club football grinds to a halt, in light of the upcoming FIFA World Cup.

In the aftermath of Real Madrid’s defeat to Rayo, a report from MARCA suggests that the feeling around the camp is not very positive at the moment.

It appears everyone in the Real Madrid camp is worried about the state of the team’s defence this season which has underperformed even when the club have managed to squeeze points out of matches.

Indeed, in 13 league matches, the Whites have conceded 13 goals this season, which is considerably higher than the four Barcelona have conceded all season so far.

In fact, Real Madrid’s tally of 13 goals conceded is the joint-highest among the top five spots in the league table. The club’s defensive shortcomings are further indicated by the fact that star goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is yet to even keep a single clean sheet in the league.

However, there is still time for Real Madrid to improve defensively, especially with club football set to go on an early hiatus due to the FIFA World Cup. It should give coach Carlo Ancelotti ample time to address the issue and get his ideas across to the team.

What is the price tag on Kylian Mbappe’s Real Madrid jersey?




Kylian Mbappe’s arrival at Real Madrid has sparked a frenzy among football fans, with the club swiftly making his iconic jersey available for purchase starting July 11. 

Notably, before July 11, eager fans could not get their hands on a jersey featuring Mbappe’s name and number 9, as he was under contract with PSG until June 30. 

However, once the clock struck July 11, enthusiasts could finally purchase his jerseys in various styles, prompting a rapid sell-out at the Adidas store within hours.

The pricing of these jerseys has garnered significant attention, varying not only by size but also by the type of jersey—Replica or Authentic—that fans choose, reports Diario AS.

Initially, the Real Madrid online store listed the Replica version of Mbappe’s jersey at €100, while the Authentic version, identical to those worn by the team’s players, was priced at €160.

The highest-priced option is the Authentic Mbappe Men’s Home Kit Shirt, retailing at €185. This premium version allows fans to add additional patches such as La Liga or Champions League badges for an extra charge. 

Surprisingly, the women’s version of the jersey is priced equivalently, reflecting gender-neutral pricing practices, while the children’s edition is slightly more affordable at €130. 

Furthermore, even the youngest fans can join in the excitement with a baby version of the jersey priced at €80.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more budget-friendly option, the Mbappe Men’s Home Shirt comes in at €120. 

Fans can customize these shirts with either a La Liga or Champions League patch for an additional €15, affixed uniquely on the right sleeve, opposite the iconic HP logo on the left, a prominent sponsor of the club. 

These prices apply to the short-sleeved versions; opting for long sleeves incurs a slightly lower cost.
