Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro: Of course we missed Cristiano

Football: Atletico punish tired Real in extra-time to lift Super Cup

The former Chelsea striker was at his imperious best, giving his side the lead with only 58 seconds gone and then equalising ten minutes from time after Karim Benzema and Sergio Ramos had put Real ahead.

But they could not hold on.

Simeone has missed the club's last three European matches - most recently the match against Real Madrid on Wednesday - and he will miss a fourth as he continues a ban imposed upon him after being sent off against Arsenal in the Europa League semi-final in April.

Casemiro joined Real Madrid in 2013.

It isn't a disastrous result for Los Blancos, although it's certainly not an ideal way to kick off the new season.

"We can not talk about Cristiano to cover things up, because any team would miss Cristiano".

Calixto apparently fell ill during the procedure and Furtado rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she died hours later. Additionally, Furtado wasn't allowed to practice in Rio, due to not being in possession of his license to practice.

Interesting. One defeat and Real Madrid players are already pointing out that losing Ronaldo has been a massive blow to the team. "We always say the door is open for new arrivals but it is more important to have the right mentality than any other talent".

Casemiro, however, said the loss to Atlético did not mean his side had to go out and make urgent signings.

Lopetegui endured a tumultuous summer after being sacked as Spain coach on the eve of the World Cup and faces an unenviable task in following Zidane, who lifted a remarkable nine trophies in less than three years in charge of Real, including three consecutive Champions League titles.

It was Courtois' first experience as a Real Madrid player, even if he did have to watch on from the sideline. Here, we win together and lose together.

Julen Lopetegui's Madrid open their LaLiga campaign against Getafe at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday.
