The Real Madrid he keeps his back to the goal. The merengue team went from the celebrated 0-0 in Liverpool, which certified his pass to the semifinals of the Champions League, to another goalless draw that complicates him The league. Now those of Zinedine Zidane are three points behind the leader, the Athletic, and at risk of losing second place in favor of a Barça with a less disputed match.
The Getafe he was closer to the goal than a Real Madrid full of substitutes. And that those of Jose Bordalás They are, together with Eibar, the lowest-scoring team in the First Division with 22 goals. Zidane initially left on the bench the squeezed Karim Benzema, who could not act as a revulsive when he entered in the 65th minute for a Mariano Diaz that he had suffered a severe blow to his right knee shortly before.
In the soulless merengue attack it was also irrelevant Vinicius Junior, the weakest player Zizou lined up last night in the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez. The Brazilian, whom the filomadridista press elevated after his double against Liverpool in the Alfredo Di StéfanoIn the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals (3-1), he is no longer ‘on fire’ in a team that will need a lot of goal in this momentous ‘rush’ season finale.
It is true that the Real Madrid had the merit of surviving yesterday with the same defense that the Alcoyano on the Copa del Rey. Without any starting defense, with the last loss of Ferland mendy, the central Éder Militao has gone from being a secondary to a ‘boss’ of a rear perfectly protected by a Thibaut Courtois heroic again.
The Real Madrid have not lost in their last 11 away matches in LaLiga (six wins and five draws) and have chained 15 games without losing defeat in all competitions, but the team from Zidane It seems pinned by accumulated fatigue and casualties. It will be necessary to see if it has enough energy to hold on Europe and keep fighting for one League that goes a little further.
