Mario Balotelli is facing a ticking-offfrom Brendan Rodgers today after riling his managerby swapping shirts with an opponent at half-time during Liverpool's 0-3 defeat against Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
With Liverpool alreadythree goals down at the time, Balotelli swapped shirts with Pepe as the two teams made their way down the Anfield tunnel at the interval which, if the general reaction is anything to go by, was and is the ultimate affront to all that is holy in this world.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a sublime goal for Real Madrid against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday to open up the scoring at Anfield.
Ronaldo netted the goal in the 23rd minute at Anfield to score his first-ever goal at the stadium. With Liverpool looking more threatening in the first 20 minutes, Real Madrid's goal was against the run of play, but who other than Cristiano Ronaldo would score the goal to open up the scoring?
Remember the 1-3 loss to Manchester City? That, but worse, because the defending on the second and third goals was vastly worse, and Real Madrid are even better than Manchester City, and Liverpool were at home, and there was no own goal late consolation.
