Too juicy were the defeats of Barcelona and Athletic so that a Madrid with positive inertia you will miss the opportunity to sink your teeth into them. Thus, those of Ancelotti, not without difficulties, they achieved with their victory in Saint Sebastian get a little further away from their direct rivals to live at ease in the solitude of the leadership.
First Vinicius and then Jovic they threw theirs towards a privileged place on the table from where, if they continue like this, silver will soon begin to be seen. And it is that the whites already get 10 points at Athletic, with whom they play next week, and 16 at Barcelona. Although that yes, with a party more than them. Also about the Seville, which they won last week and got eight units.
A striker was injured
The clash started with the two teams awake, running everywhere. The 22 seemed to want to accomplish the impossible task of filling in the green gaps of the 105 x 70 and they came close to achieving it. And while the boots of Vinicius Sparks flew, magic sprang from Oyarzabal’s. Each one in their own style, they were the banners of the attack of their own.
Even more so when Benzema, the most decisive player in The league (top scorer and top assistant), ended his participation at 20 minutes due to muscle discomfort. There were then tremors on the merengue bench as the horizon scares more without the healthy starting striker. Jovic entered his place, who was resuscitating at that time, although at that time no one knew about it.
In those, the Real society gradually took command of the party and although the Madrid it was not diluted, Imanol’s painting was more striking in attack. Spurred on by their own who made the stadium a boiler, the txuri-urdin team wanted. The problem was, he couldn’t. Courtois, the merengue defense and some precision error at the last minute prevented them from taking the lead before the break. It was a really electrifying 45 minutes.
A striker was resurrected
Already in the second part, everything turned to face for him Real Madrid when to Vinicius It seemed like the right moment to re-certify his metamorphosis. He has managed to make no one remember when he was a worm. The Brazilian grabbed the ball on the left-handed side, dribbled inside to give a ball to Jovic that, with a brilliant maneuver – of genius – he returned it to be executed by Remiro with an exact and punctual touch with the net. Is another one.
But Jovic, who knew little about that tray to Vinicius, certified his resurrection with a goal in the style of what he has been asking for since he arrived: a striker. The Serbian put his head in the small area after a cross and when he saw that his ball entered, he breathed. He had not marked dressed in white – last night was in blue – since February 9, 2020. It has rained since then. Maybe more than ever.
And with the result in favor, Ancelotti allowed himself the luxury of withdrawing the warning Casemiro. Then the team did not wane like other times and remained upright until the end. Thus, he added the three points and struck a blow at The league that although it is not definitive, it has a lot of foreboding.
