The stops of Thibaut Courtois and the clairvoyance of Karim Benzema explained the draw of a gray Madrid in the Derby, surpassed by a Athletic ambitious during almost the entire match that paid for his conformism when he was already stroking a capital victory in his fight for the title of League.
The Belgian goalkeeper saved the Madrid against his former teams with several worthwhile interventions at the start of the second half. The performance of the former goalkeeper of Atlético de Madrid sustained those of Zidane, who could well conceive two or three more goals. Carrasco first and Suárez later had in their boots the 2-0, but the Belgian was enormous to keep alive a Madrid that went from less to more until he ended up locking his rival in the area of Oblak.
The Slovenian responded to his counterpart’s stops with a double intervention against Karim Benzema that would have made him the hero of Atlético again. However, Madrid’s nine amended his mistake to give his team a transcendental point and put the League Red Hot.
Benzema He was returning from injury and it took his time to take the temperature of the game. In the first half he went unnoticed due to the good mattress pressure and the good work of some imperial Savic and Felipe. They didn’t help him Asensio Y Rodrygo, missing in the Wanda, and instead Vinicius and Valverde gave Madrid another air based on intensity and courage.
The personality of the Brazilian and the Uruguayan began to incline the field towards the area of Oblak and that allowed Benzema it will start to appear between the lines very frequently. At his side also emerged the figure of Casemiro, capable of disguising himself as necessary. In all the games it is the defensive bastion of Madrid and yesterday he acted as an assistant to summon Benzema with the goal after a great combination between the two.
At Madrid of Zidane, Courtois it is the beginning, Benzema the end and Casemiro is the element of surprise that allows white people to continue dreaming of The league.
