Real Madrid Cup match in La Romareda
Huele a big match in La Romareda, a historic site in Spanish football that takes more time than advisable away from the great circuits of our football. The stadium of Real Zaragoza Be the perfect setting for a big game, of those who have marked the history of football in our country, leaving memorable evenings and evenings for both fans. The local fill the stands of the Aragonese Coliseum to receive Madrid in a ‘final’ First copera, it is that and no other the category of Zaragoza in the football records of several generations of Spanish fans.
Embarked on the always delicate process of returning to Primera, Zaragoza makes a stop along the way, tempted by the possibility of regaining its hierarchy before a throne rival. For Vctor Fernndez, the technician who passes the name of the Mao club in Europe, the return to lite remains the priority, and this is reflected in his eleven, but nobody in the capital of Aragn It makes disgusting to candy that this new RFEF Cup offers the most weakly weak. The pass to rooms is aired in La Romareda, an argument in favor of the locals, that never, throughout these years of desert crossbar, have felt the breathlessness of theirs. Nor is missing tonight in a game whose echoes evoke stages of greater glory for the Zaragoza club.
For its part, the Madrid comes to the duel up on the good wave, in its best stretch of the season. Or, at least, in which more revenue is being offered at the statistical level. Those of Zidane snatched the league leadership from the Bara with a very complicated victory in another historic stadium, the New Zorrilla, and their moral deposits are full after their access to the first place in the table, which is added to the conquest of the Super Cup in Saudi Arabia also in a promising January month for whites, with the return of the Champions hovering on the horizon of the team. There are another four weeks left for that, that Zidane intends to take advantage of to consolidate the leadership of LaLiga and take Madrid to the limit in the Cup, a cursed tournament for the French coach, to which Zaragoza himself endorsed a couple of loud revolts in his time as a player of the white team, when that of the Galacticos.
That limit that Zidane is looking for is the conquest of a title that Madrid has not tasted since 2014, with the French still as assistant to Carlo Ancelotti, with that ride of Bale by the band of Mestalla. The gals, a mystery with legs, stays in Madrid, presumably because of a physical problem, but that does not reduce opulence to the list of Zizou, who yesterday presumed as a template at a press conference and hours later, when preparing the list of summoned for tonight’s duel. A payroll with Courtois, Carvajal, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Mendy, Kroos, Modric, Valverde and Benzema, among others, although ZZ also saves clothes and leaves Madrid to Casemiro, the trunk player of modern Madrid, next to a Isco which also points to the Saturday derby against the Atlantic. The duel does not come Eden Hazard, for which no return date is shuffled, at least for outward doors, beyond assuring their presence in the best possible state in the European tie against the City.
Being the twenty-first copero confrontation between Zaragoza and Madrid, a rivalry that started in 1940 (White triumph in the semifinals, 2-1) and that has brought two finals, that of 1993, which sweetens the end of the Fifth, and of 2004, which crowns the Bone Galletti.
The last precedent, in 2006 (also in the semifinals) is the history of Spanish football, with that crushing 6-1 of the maos in La Romareda and the agonized attempt to comeback of the whites in the Bernabu (4-0). Since then, football has taken both clubs along very different paths, but the Cup unites their destinations again tonight. All in play at 90 minutes, without a turn of the leaf, in a First Final.
