Real Madrid continues to run within the Spanish league. In the derby in opposition to Atlético, the group celebrates a sixth win in a sixth recreation and conjures up with ruthless effectivity. The targets of “Royal” are brilliantly performed.
The indisputable fact that Carlo Ancelotti might be coping with an issue within the coming weeks will hardly make Carlo Ancelotti price elevating his legendary eyebrows. Because the state of affairs is sure: even with out star striker Karim Benzema (injured), issues are going very effectively for Real Madrid. In a heated City derby in opposition to Atlético, Rodrigo (18th) and Federico Valverde (thirty sixth) scored to make it 2–1. Mario Hermoso struck too late for the hosts (83rd). Hermoso was despatched off with a yellow card in harm time.
But the story of this recreation is totally different. The story revolves across the ruthless effectivity with which Los Blancos determine video games within the absence of their world-class striker from France. The present Champions League winners weren’t group in opposition to the Rojiblancos. It also took some luck to not fall behind. But Real struck simply seconds after Geoffrey Kondogbia’s highly effective long-range shot went simply large of Thibaut Courtois’ purpose. And how.
Choumeni’s finest soccer artwork
Federico Valverde labored his approach into midfield, performed the ball down the left and from there discovered the toes of Aurelien Choumaeni. And then what the French newcomer did with the devices of the play was supreme artwork. Almost from the beginning, he chipped the ball over the protection so effectively that Rodrigo had little hassle making it 1-0. He pushed in from six metres. But that purpose, all of them knew, got here from Aurelian Choumaeni, who joined from AS Monaco for €80m earlier than the season and now has the troublesome activity of changing the departed six-man legend Casemiro at Real.
Over the years, the Brazilian has been an indispensable a part of the Imperial directing division alongside Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. Now (effectively, he isn’t an everyday but) he is taking part in for Manchester United. The indisputable fact that they did not grapple with Madrid lengthy sufficient to lose Casemiro is exactly as a result of they bought Chouamey. Renovation of the middle is underway. With Eduardo Kamavinga, Real have a expertise from final season who ought to and can fill the position of playmaker sooner or later. But there may be nonetheless Kroos. And Modric. And regardless of what number of swan songs are sung, they ship. On and on.
Such velocity, such precision
For instance, Modric ready 2-0. And how. Again so superior. Vinicius Jr. paces down the left, lays it onto Modric, who performs a razor-sharp one-two by the Atlético collective. Vinicius passes alone, the submit fails, the ball crosses the purpose space earlier than Valverde runs in and scores. Like Rodrigo, the Uruguayan has scored for the third time this season. An actual offensive position – even with out Benzema. Without the person who’s the highest favourite for this 12 months’s World Footballer of the Year election. Problem for Ancelotti? Well, that can take a cushty be aware for now.
After the sport, Atletico coach Diego Simeone of all individuals got here out as a fan of the royal group. The Real Total portal quoted him as saying: “Real Madrid defend very effectively, run a bit, shut down areas, assault on the counter. I like a group like that. Their penetrating energy is unbelievable. A group like that To see somebody defend so deep after which counter like that’s superb.” In this case, nevertheless, extremely painful for the Rojiblancos. It was the sixth win within the sixth recreation for Real. This makes Los Blancos the one clear sheet in La Liga. FC Barcelona are two factors behind the Royals and former Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski scored a 3-0 (2-0) win over FC Elche.
Meanwhile, some Atlético followers staged a scandal. Videos circulating on social media present Vinicius Jr. being racially abused once more. Among different issues, he was denigrated as an ape. Pedro Bravo, president of the Spanish Association of Football Agents, not too long ago continued this story on the favored sports activities program “El Chiringuito” in regards to the comfortable dances 22-year-old Vinicius did after scoring a purpose. “Anyone who desires to bop samba ought to go to Rio’s sambodrome. Here (in Spain) you need to respect your teammates and cease making a idiot of your self,” he shouted. Before the derby, Atletico captain Koke warned: “If he scores targets and dances (…) there will certainly be hassle.” PSG star Neymar, however, inspired his compatriot: “Dance, Vinny.” He did. First on the left – after which along with his colleagues who scored targets.
