Real Madrid does not start in this preseason, defeated again, this time by Tottenham, the runner-up in Europe, and not thrashed thanks to the stops of Keylor Navas. Collective errors and individual errors condemned the whole of Zidane. The most striking was that of Marcelo, who wanted to save a throw-in as a gift to Harry Kane. Above him, the most lethal footballer of the English, who did not forgive in the hand to hand with Keylor. The goal came by a fault but before it had been around the goal of Madrid and only his goalkeeper had prevented it, proving again that he has a thousand lives. Courtois was injured, it is not known if he will reach the start of LaLiga, he played and played a great game.
Marcelo was serious, but it can happen. More worrying perhaps was the operation as a group again. For many sections of the meeting, especially at the beginning, the pieces did not fit. Losses at the start of the ball followed each other and Kroos and Modric were again overcome in the center of the field: they could not organize or give them time to defend. The Korean Son was undetectable, sneaked between the lines and could be turned. Eriksen was everywhere and Kane warned. The goal did bring the first reaction of Madrid, which was activated and went higher, although it continued to grant back. But Benzema, at least, had a couple of opportunities to tie. He missed them. It's not being the French preseason. The truth is that it does not put one.
Zidane's team continued to rise at the start of the second half. He made no changes and Tottenham replaced nine players. Marcelo tried to solve the defense failure in attack and on his side he carried danger. But the Pochettino team settled down, became the owner of the ball and again tested the reflexes of Keylor Navas, who had to fly especially before a shot by Dele Alli. The volley was spectacular, but the paradón overcame him. For not having had no luck in Madrid, since he scored a goal, Rodrygo, but was canceled out of play. The illegal position of the Brazilian was clear.
Kubo's enthusiasm in the last minutes didn't work either. The new Real Madrid is still waiting. Also something else of Hazard, which leaves details every day, but without breaking.
