Gary Lineker expressed disbelief at comments made by Jude Bellingham following Real Madrid’s Champions League clash with Manchester City. Despite City dominating possession and having more shots on goal, they lost the match on penalties. Bellingham had praised Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti for the freedom he gives his players tactically, a statement that Lineker found surprising given Real’s defensive approach in the game.

With City having 67% possession and a passing accuracy of 92%, compared to Real’s 33% possession and 82% passing accuracy, it is clear that Bellingham and his teammates did not have much freedom on the pitch. Despite City’s dominance in various metrics, they were unable to secure a victory in the match. Lineker’s reaction to Bellingham’s comments reflects the stark difference in perception between the two teams’ performances during the game.

The outcome of the match, with Real Madrid progressing to the semi-finals, despite City’s dominance on the stat sheet, highlights the importance of effective game management and efficiency in football. Bellingham’s remarks and Lineker’s response shed light on the contrasting perspectives on the tactical approach and performance of the two teams in the Champions League clash.
