They had done everything to Madrid at the Bernabéu. Everything but a goal, which is the best way to go through a bad time. It was the first act, painful. The second, on the other hand, started willfully, because you don’t go from fog to sun in an instant, not on a soccer field, although this stadium has been able to get to know the four seasons in 90 minutes, better more than 90. few will know how Faith Valverdewho came out of the fog as usual to reverse the logic of the game or, rather, impose the logic of Madrid, finished off by his nemesis, the subtle Asensio. A bit that came in peace to charge the peacemaker with reasons Ancelotti.
With the clearest things began, instead, Leipzig. A team that knows what it wants in each zone of the field. He advances the defense with risk to reduce the space, which allows coordinating high pressure. He does not linger in the offensive transition, tremendously vertical, and any footballer always finds an unmarked teammate, thanks to the continuous mobility of all of them. The ball is not expected, it goes to meet him.
Timo Werner He is an exponent of that game, devilish, always in search of the erónegas zones. If his effectiveness in the shot had been different, we would talk about something else and, surely, not at Leipzig. It is what he lacked in his time in the aristocracy. However, he has a lot to contribute, and much of what a good coach values. rose frame it is, one more in the emerging generation of German technicians, from Jurgen Klopp a Thomas Tuchel either Julian Nagelmannwho laid the foundations of the Red Bull team before leaving for Bayern.
Werner was a torment for an unprecedented couple of central defenders, Rudiger Y Nacho, with a breaded Madrid ahead. The group stage did not stimulate him like his rival, of course, but as the minutes passed they showed an excessively erratic team, without Tony Kroos start, rest, and without modric in its best version, although the Croat’s heart is a lion’s heart. He always arrives, always tries. Camavinga was the other interior with Tchouameni as pivot. Throughout the first half they were unable to raise a barrier against Haidara Y Schlager.
The stage called for the usual when a storm threatens. It is Courtoison your site to win two heads-up nkunku. By the third, he was beaten, but luckily for the Whites, the French striker didn’t reach Werner’s pass from the side. He is a footballer who arrives to be among the greats. On the other side of the Bernabéu, nothing had had to stop Gulacsi. The closest the goalkeeper saw the danger was in a possible penalty from Schlager about Modric. The VAR did not settle. In the Champions League he acts like firefighters, only in fires. Let’s take note.
Rodrygoin place of Benzema, had not found any loopholes for his niceties. It is not the same to go out before a team shaken like an olive tree than before the harvest. More than pepper in the attack, Madrid lacked seasoning in the entire field. He did it at the break.
First came the intensity, with the inevitable step back from Leipzig, because Madrid, even if it’s pushing, puts anyone in their area. Then Asensio jumped with a face of circumstances, very different from the one he had when he left the field after the artist’s goal that closed an uphill game and that, surely, would have ended differently if it hadn’t been for Valverde. The departure of the Balearic caused the Uruguayan to delay his position, but he likes to reach the area from wherever he is. I was there to receive from Viniciusdodge the defender and put Madrid in his place, leader in a Champions League that ends as it began and in which to play, what is said to be played, is not always important.
