Gareth Bale & Blancos stronger without Cristiano Ronaldo, says Roma defender Kostas Manolas

Madrid have started a new era under the guidance of coach Julen Lopetegui, and with Cristiano Ronaldo sold this summer to Juventus, it has opened the door for Bale to play a more regular role in the team.

Recall that Messi earlier this month said that Juventus are clear favorites to win this season's Champions League now that they have Ronaldo.

"Obviously it's going to be a little different from having such a big player there", Bale told the Daily Mail.

"Now it's a bit more hard than it was before - before it was complicated but focused a lot on Cristiano, and now it's a bit more unsafe, at least [in terms of] how I see football and my concept of this game". "I suppose there is more of a team, more working as one unit rather than one player".

Alisson's fantastic start to life at Liverpool was slightly marred by a freakish error against Leicester City, but the Reds remain unbeaten this season and have conceded only two goals so far in five matches.

Real Madrid face Roma tomorrow night in the Champions League as they look to win it for a fourth consecutive year.

Fired by his anger at being left out of the starting line-up in Zinedine Zidane's last match in charge of Madrid, Bale came off the bench to score twice in last season's Champions League final to beat Liverpool 3-1.

"We can be even better again", he added. "We're ready for it".

Wales worldwide Bale was sent on by then coach Zinedine Zidane with the score at 1-1 after 61 minutes, beating Liverpool keeper Loris Karius with his sensational strike three minutes later. Bale said, "Angry. Quite angry, to be honest". I'd been scoring goals.

"I always try to put a bit of wobble on the ball", he points out.
