“The changes are requested by the party,” he replied. Zinedine Zidane after the victory against Valencia after having made only two of the five substitutions allowed. Yesterday a fierce Getafe put Real Madrid on the edge that could only be unleashed from the entrance of Valverde, Rodrygo and Marco Asensio.
The white outfit, extremely uncomfortable for a long hour due to the pressure and intensity displayed by the GetafeHe saw the light at the end of the tunnel on his right wing to tip the balance of the game and open a four-point gap with Barcelona. The white players celebrated the victory with relief after spending almost 80 minutes on the tightrope.
The intervention of Zidane locating Valverde already Rodrygo on the right bank, added to the exit of Marc Cucurella off the pitch, he gave wings to the white team, unable until then to free themselves from the shackles of azulones.
The blackboard of Bordalás and the union spirit that their players squander in each set and in each divided ball completely neutralized the entire system of a Madrid where almost everyone, except perhaps Carvajal, were unrecognizable throughout the crash.
Kroos, Modric, Isco and Benzema they were engulfed by the tactical gear arranged by the Alicante coach. Especially unfortunate was the performance of Luka modric, which was a machine to lose balls in committed situations. The years do not pass in vain for the Croatian, physically overcome by the requirement of the Getafe and also the calendar.
When things were worst Zidane he drew on fresh sap and the Getafe He no longer had an answer. Carvajal put the turbo, Valverde short-circuited the azulón system and Rodrygo Little by little, the visitor resistance was undermined. From a penalty, suffering from the beautiful and asking for the time, Madrid opens the gap thanks to his bench.
