"Real Madrid is the best team in Europe at the moment," voter Cedric Rouquette of Eurosport in France said. "They're showing it just as much in the Champions League as in La Liga. It's the most efficient and complete team around at the moment, All they need to do is to maintain this form for two months, which is not a given."
"His season has been monstrous," Rouquette said. "Beyond his level of play, it was a captain whose performance on Sunday gave life to what he has long claimed: his club is building a team identity and a soul."
