Real Madrid has lost the leadand, what is worse, part of that game that led him to that privileged position and all the defensive strength that for two months made him a solid and effective team.The first warning came with the elimination of Copaof the King before the Royal Society, the secondagainst Celta and the auction against Levante, leaving Real Madrid very touched when it enters the week in which it puts into play the two competitions in which it is still alive, first against City in the Champions League and then against Barcelona in the League.
The worst part is that the team ofZinedine Zidaneshowed a lack of alarming resources, withViniciusas the only one capable of putting one more march onceHazard got injured. But with both the Belgian and the Brazilian on the grass, the lack of goal was once again the common denominator of the Real Madrid game. Occasions, arrivals,19 shots, seven between the three suits, but without success to beat Aitor Fernndez. It is not new. It is an evil that the white team has been accusing in the last year and a half.
Everything has as a consequence theloss of leadershipand a blow to the confidence of all sectors of Real Madrid, but still taking into account that Hazard has been injured again and looks like he will lose the decisive part of the season, just the one that starts playing Real Madrid from next Wednesday. Could this situation have been avoided? It feels as if the trajectory of the white teaminvited to think of a change in trendand because the eternal rival was worse, but the reality says is that the Madrid team, starting with Zidane (Rodrygo the second top scorer of the team plays on Sunday with Castilla) and ending withBenzemaand his absence of goal.
The Real Madrid team dominates Levante, but as it has happened in other games, when the goal does not arrive in the first minutes, the order and the meaning of the game disappears, becoming thearea centersThe only argument.Before Paco Lpez’s team they were 35.And the worst part is that on many occasions, the one who has to finish them off, the nine, is not in the area. It is not new, but in the face of the Levant it was exacerbated by the lack of success.
Now come theManchester City and Barcelona, that team that has a boiling club behind, that has undergone a change of coach, but that arrives at the Classic two points ahead, when not even in the Barca dressing room they imagined reaching the Bernabu in the best of their dreams. Zidane and histhey have given life to a dying manwhich incredibly arrives as leader of Sunday’s game at nine o’clock at night.
The match against Levante was one ms and even could win. In the first half, the white team was much superior, but in football they are goals and that is not left over Real Madrid, who also received the bad news of Hazard’s injury and see howCourtois eats Morales’ goal,Leaving the leadership on the road when many thought he would no longer leave the white wardrobe, the same one that was dejected at the end of the game and unable to respond on the green.
