“We are cooking today”, “Thank you Ancelotti” – Fans react as Real Madrid veteran starts in La Liga clash against Rayo Vallecano

Must read

Fans have reacted to Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric starting in their La Liga game at Rayo Vallecano on Sunday (February 18).

Los Blancos are coming off a 1-0 win at RB Leipzig in their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg. In their last league outing a week ago, Carlo Ancelotti’s side beat Girona 4-0 at home in a top-of-the-table clash to go five points clear at the top after 25 games.

Veteran midfielder Modric is making a rare start, having been in and out of the first team all season. Nevertheless, considering his proven pedigree and experience, fans are undoubtedly elated to see the 2018 Ballon d’Or winner start.

One tweeted:

“Modric is back on the starting lineup. We are cooking today.”

Another chimed in:

“Modric starts today. Modric starts today.”

Here are some of the top reactions on X:

Los Blancos are in imperious form this season, especially in the league, where their only loss was a 3-1 loss at Atletico Madrid.

They have also fared well in Europe, winning all seven Champions League games, including all six in the group stage for a record third time.

Having won the Supercopa Espana for their first title of the season, Real Madrid fell early in the Copa del Rey, losing to Atletico Madrid in the Round of 16. But they are firing on all cylinders once again.

How has Luka Modric fared for Real Madrid this season?
