Real MadridDangerous and repeated drift of white equipment
ANDlReal MadridHe has once again dropped out of the league even before reaching the equator of the League. Seven points are in thelimit of the removable(It would be eight if the whites do not raise thegoalverageto theBarça, which is the most logical after 5-1). After histie in Villarreal, the white balance is bleak.Of 17 games they have won nine, tied three and lost five. That is, stop winning almost one in two games. They have flown 21 points. LaLiga, a sentence for theMadrid.
It is not something new in the last decade of the league, in which Madrid has only been champion in two seasons (Mourinho 11-12 and Zidane 16-17). It is tradition that Madrid stops competing for the leagues well in advance. The last course ended16 points.
In eight of the last 10 in which Madrid did not win the title, came alive to the last day in three: withPellegrini on 09-10, withAncelotti at 14-15and withZidane on 15-16, although in this course the title was almost impossible in February. He survived until the last day thanks to 12 consecutive victories and a mini-cricket of Barça with a point of 12.But even then they could not be champions.
The debacles are on 08-09 (theBarça champion four days from the end), in 10-11 (Barça title to three of the 38), 12-13 (same situation), 13-14 (mathematically dismissed afive days) and in the past course. Now, seven from Barça,there is no history of Madrid in which he has raised such rent to the leader.
How is it explained thatMadridwho has won four of the last fiveChampionsWill it cost so much to compete in the league?Zidanegave value to the League that won even over theEuropean Cupsbecause he knows the value of being the best in a 38-match tournament. And for the same reason it was one of the reasons that invited him to leave. He did not seem able to have this team plugged infor 10 months.
Lopeteguifirst and nowSolariThey have found the same problem. With Julen Madrid he edged him againstRome, a night that by stage and competition motivated the group by itself. But then Sevilla arrived (after the UEFA gala), the derby, the petardAlavés and Levanteand the condemnation ofClassic. Lopetegui was fired at seven from Barça,same distance Solari is.
The Argentine was optimistic after the reliable version of theMadrid in the Club World Cup. As much as the entity of the rivals was smaller, there was a title at stake. Return to the League, return to the cyclothymic and unpredictable version ofMadrid. It was thought that the Eibar was a bad afternoon.Now it is believed that it was not so casual.
A team that has coexisted with the glory of everyday life in the most attractive scenarios finds it difficult to get plugged into the daily routine, that ofMendizorroza, Ipurua and La Cerámica. In addition, at this point, it is undeniable that the template is inferior to the last one that the League won. Along the way, not only did the coach and the striker go from goal to game,Cristianor, they also accompanied themMorata, James, Danilo, Pepe, Kovacic… Many of them decisive in that B team that allowedZizourotate between League and Champions. Only one signing in two years is indisputable:Courtois.
At this point, the dynamic is more than dangerous, with the League without having reached the middle of the road and theMadrid playing in almost one out of every two games. The Cup and the Champions are there, but the shadow of another drifting League threatensBernabéuto which, on the other hand,every time they go less madridistas.
