Real Madrid wins Viktoria but does not convince | sports


Not even a rival of the broom truck of the European Cup was a sedative for this Madrid crashed and lost. The boys of Viktoria Pilsen arrived distressed before a possible shower and saw themselves a goal of the tie in the final stretch. Meanwhile, Madrid was the Madrid of these times of anxiety. The goal, even if it generates chances, is an alpine milestone, and in his area he swings with anyone. Even against Viktoria Pilsen, who had him in suspense near Keylor half a dozen times. And he even had him distressed in the last minutes. The victory, pyrrhic and without grace, will not clear the commotion around a team that suffers even with a rival that, already defeated, gave an Olympic round for the Bernabéu.

There is plenty in Chamartín. Also with the devotees of the European Cup, usually more complacent than the followers of the League. The call to rest was eloquent. Just before, Hrosovsky, a Czech gregarious, had just scored a goal that could only be goal, goal or goal. But the man, a reflection of this limited Viktoria Pilsen, gave him a panic attack and missed the opportunity a foot from the goal, wide open. That a parvo opponent added his third chance in half time disturbed the tier, angry by so many recent disappointments.

That the Czech set hurry to Madrid showed that the Lopetegui group is not well screwed. Either against Levante or against a rival of scale lower than the Granotas as the Czech representative. Of course the Real had trances in the Hruska area. Just missing. But, despite their discounted superiority in the visiting area, Madrid did not give the sensation of having the whole party embridado.

The beginning was apparent, with Viktoria afflicted by the magnitude of the Bernabéu and the Madridista heraldry. The disposition of Pavel Vrba's team, which scored five goals in its passage through Rome, was surprising. Despite his defensive mound, in his trench there were spaces in every corner. There were his boys, huddled together, but nobody bothered. Not even in the corners, with Sergio Ramos, who is not an anonymous in this of the air soccer, released completely to head to the right post of Hruska to the five minutes. At what seemed a paseíllo, answered the Viktoria with a double chance of Petrzela. Lucas, improvised lateral, the chain went out, and Bale, his assistant on the right bank, did not take notice. And it was not the first time, so Lucas was intimidated more than necessary.

More or less managed with the ball, the Czech painting showed an extraordinary defensive softness. A great lateral service by Lucas caught Hedja disheveled and Benzema nodded wonderfully to the net. The Frenchman's goal gave way to a stretch of monserial, ordinary football. The Madrid dealt with the duel, without more, while the Viktoria was the Viktoria except when he found Krmencik, a pole striker with class with his feet, or Madrid allowed him to be what he is not. Limbersky played a rattle for Madrid. His bite in front of Keylor went by a finger. Neither before such adversary was a Real sewn.

Pulling, Benzema, active this day, had no eyes for Bale in a diaphanous attack. The same as Isco paid no attention to the loneliness of Benzema and Kroos when the visitor goal was clumsy with his feet and served him on a plate a goal. And there was no view of a goalkeeping assistant. In his noses, Limbersky was clumsy when giving the ball with the chest to his goalkeeper, Lucas anticipated and the Czech got him a kick. A book penalty.

Something more fluid in the offense, Madrid multiplied its attacks in the second act. But he is cursed before the goal. It is hard to believe that a classic puncher has become a flyweight. Without much plasticity, but rowed on the sides and funnel. Without success by one way or another. Until he found respite with a rookie, Fede Valverde, relief of Isco before the time. The Uruguayan premiered with such ease that in his first touch he played very well with Bale, who connected exquisitely with Marcelo with a terminal heel that left the side facing Hrusca. The 2-0 did not wake up Madrid, nothing categorical in any of the areas. They left Bale and Benzema, Marcelo was injured and Real, stunned by the course of the night and by the course of the last weeks, only found relief when the referee lowered the curtain. By then, the expected Viktoria goal was looking for the equalizer before the astonishment and the twisted gesture of the people. Seldom will a triumph have turned out to be so little analgesic. Unlike. The Madrid of the next hours will continue to burn.
