The Real society remains undefeated, although also without winning, in the Europa League, in which his match against a AS Monaco who went ahead on the scoreboard but who had to suffer in the second half after the equalizer achieved by Mikel merino and now the Donostiarras will face their next two games against the Austrian Sturm Graz.
The Monegasque team proposed a tactical match, without haste, waiting to be able to solve it in the second half since the approach of their coach Nico Kovac It was clear, with his best attacking players on the bench in a first half that would not be placid on a defensive level for Real.
Monaco slept the game and so did their players. After 10 minutes of play, the Real made one of their classic counterattacks led by Oyarzabal and the final auction was left to Januzaj for the Belgian to finish off a shot that was close to passing over Nubel.
I was the party where I wanted Imanol Sheriff when the cold water jug arrived moments later, in a corner kick to the center of the area in which the blue and white centrals were not very forceful to stop Disasi and the French central topped the right post of Remiro making his stretch unsuccessful.
It was up to the Basque team to row against the current and he didn’t do it wrong, but the lack of aim was again a very expensive bill, Oyarzabal had it in a Portu qualification that left him alone before the goalkeeper Nubel and the scoreboard began to become a heavy slab for a Real in which there were not many ideas .
Compete without such important players as Alex Isak, David Silva or Monreal It seems impossible for this young Real, but as she is audacious at the beginning of the second half, she had already balanced the match by returning the blow to Monaco in the same way as she conceded it, with a corner kick that connected with the head of Mikel Merino, who signed the tie to the Reale Arena scoreboard.
The Donostiarras recovered their morale and after that, their best minutes arrived, which did not have the desired prize because the gunpowder was still not completely dry and because Nubel also demonstrated solvency in the demands to which they submitted. Portu and Januzaj In the second half.
Sheriff tried it with the recovered Barrenetxea, on the left, on the right and in the center of the Monegasque rear, which had to suffer to maintain a result that leaves them next to PSV at the top of the classification of this group and the Donostiarrras required for their next commitments.
