Real Madrid Vs. Lyon: The Special One Slowing Things Down?

As if Jose Mourinho told the players to calm down and remember that a 0-0 draw is all they need, Real Madrid have let their foot off the gas slightly. Hugo Lloris was forced into a save on a Cristiano Ronaldo header from a free kick, but that's been about the only serious action in recent minutes. Real are no longer looking for the kill, but Lyon aren't looking the least bit dangerous either. This could be a classic Jose Mourinho Champions League match.

And don't act like you didn't know this might happen. The Real Madrid board and fans have a history of demanding beautiful football, but at this point, I think they're a little bit more concerned with winning trophies. Jose Mourinho is a guy who has won this trophy twice and lost another final on penalties, so it's safe to say he knows what he's doing. All hail The Special One.
