When you set a certain record, you can’t blame the rest of the world for expecting too much from you or place you on a standard you have to perform from every season, for Real Madrid, they are lackluster at the moment and they have to fix it.
Ferland Mendy grabbed a late winner to earn underwhelming Real Madrid a 1-0 win over 10-man Atalanta in Wednesday's Champions League last-16 first leg.
Atalanta continued to defend doggedly after the interval, but Mendy's superb strike in the 86th minute gave the record 13-times European champions a slender lead to take into the second leg.
