Real MadridAt 10 Barça, fifth, nine defeats in 29 games, the same as last season …
LReal Madrid's reaction to Solari's hand has vanished. Nothing remains of those first matches in which it seemedthat the arrival of the Argentine pointed to a change in the erratic white route sheet in the current season.
If in the first games it seemed that even luck was facing Solari now or with that ally his team counts.Completed the process of the Club World Cup, especially with the fall of River in the semifinals, the return of LaLiga has caused the word crisis to reappear in the white vocabulary. A dozen points away from Barcelona and outside the posts to play the Champions League make up a dark panorama.
When Lopetegui was dismissed after 5-1 at the Camp Nou, Real Madrid saw Barcelona to seven points. This morning he rises to 10 after the defeat against Real Sociedad and the victory of Barcelona in Getafe. The worst for Madrid is that their feelings in the last few days have been bad against teams with water to the neck.He won, suffering, Huesca and Rayo Vallecano, and could not pass the tie in Villarreal.They were consecutive games against the three teams that occupied the descent.
The first defeat in LaLiga de Solari at the Bernabéu occurredbefore a Real Sociedad that changed the coach before the end of the year andHe had lost four of the last five games. To that it was added that the Donostiarras had only managed to win, until yesterday, three times in 71 visits to the Bernabéu.
The 0-2 of yesterday makes Real Madrid put his defeat counter this season in nine since he started in Tallinn ceding the European Super Cup to Atletico Madrid.In 29 games he has already lost the same games as in the 62 of last season. That's equivalent to 31.1% of failures so far this season by 14.5%with which he closed the last year.
In addition, there are seven meetings in which he has remained unmarked, something that last season only happened six times. The 28 goals he has scored inLaLiga in 18 days do not find a worse figure until 25of the 1991-92 season. And six league losses at this point did not suffer from the 2005-06 season.
The big problem for Real Madrid is that the coach's bullet has already burned it.The dismissal of Lopetegui and the delivery of powers to Solari, in theory until 2021, was the bet to place the problem on the bench. The passage of matches and the damage of the first two days in 2019 weaken the position of Solari, which does not help the speech he has maintained in the last hours.
It was a day when Luka Modric could have made excuses. The penalty was not awarded to Vinícius, the number of missed chances … But no, the Croatian faced the problem with an open heart and with a hard speech destined to the dressing room and more to his teammates than to the coach. "We have to speak clearly, it's not a matter of luck, we create a lot, but the ball does not go in and we give a lot." There are reasons that explain why things are not going well.The referee has not had the day, but our problem is not the referee or the VAR, although they have not helped us. Our problems are others "explained the Croatian. And it went further: "Many of us are not at our level, we can not have a shit at the beginning of every game".
Sergio Ramos, white captain, was on the same linebut more moderate: "We will say things to your face, the way is that, talk about doors inside and not go out.It is true that you need a reaction and a change, but without pulling your hair.They go three points very fucked and the League is still getting more complicated ",
And in the background, two bulls in La Liga: Betis and Sevilla.
