Real MadridTOThe white coach saved his first 'final' with a draw at the Camp Nou
Santiago Solarihe took his first big test with a note.Madrid arrived at Camp Nou as a victimfor those who most doubted the project and the work of the coach, but the reality is that it was a very different team that fell precisely on the same stage last Wednesday.That 5-1 fulmin to Lopetegui, already questioned, and very few thought that Solari was going to fix something because the least guilty of all was the coach.But the return of Madrid to Barcelona has left very different sensations, in view of the criticisms, now very different.
Madrid can be reproached for not knowing how to finish the eternal rival when he could, that he has not won anything and that it is too early to draw conclusions, butin the Classic an idea and a job were seen behind, a tactical order that annuls Barcelona. In short, a plan, a coach behind all this and has been making decisions for a long time, much as for some the improvement of the team until the arrival at the Camp Nou has been infused science.
It is something, in any case, that the technician knows is not new.From one of his idols, Zidane, he told himself that he did not make decisions either.The famous flower of the French ended with three consecutive Champions and one League, among other titles, and that is why Solari often remembers at a press conference that we should not underestimate anyone, least of all Madrid.
Solari continues his good run at the front of Madrid.He is aware that there are two key games remaining to judge the team better, against Attico and Ajax away from home, but he had five consecutive games winning, since he beat Betis at home (1-2) plus a draw at the Clsico.Your best streak so far and the whole season, but the technician is aware of the position he occupies and the club he defends, and therefore does not go beyond the derby, also aware that two important matches are enough for the gaps that they now see in the highest to be storm clouds
But the reality is thatSolari has gained more support after the Camp Nou match. Since he arrived, his pulse has not trembled and he has made decisions, which is what is asked in complicated moments.The most delicate was to leave Isco in the background, but the results are giving him the reason and the noise of the first games due to the absence of the malagueo has gone into the background.To seat Marcelo in many matches, to bet on Vincius, to recover Marcos Llorente or Reguiln,Inditos until their landing to the white bench, or see the best Benzema that is remembered, are some of the decisions that have given their results.
As it happened with Zidane,Solari arrived in the middle of the storm.Now it has the support of the players, although many discouraged the dismissal of Lopetegui, but the technician has won the group and in the club they wait at the end of the season to assess the work of the coach.
Solari Madrid is still alive today in all competitions. And it has returned the confidence in the team and what is more important in the face of the fans, who now believe that there are even options to fight for LaLiga if the team is able to win the league clinician in the Bernabu, waiting for what happens until then. At least, in Madrid they believe again, andThat is largely due to Solari.
