Spanish League – Real Madrid The best version of the Zidane team arrived in Ipurua
The keys to the Real Madrid win in Ipurua are:
The defeat of Mallorca and the image left in what was his last league outing, served to make the entire Madrid team autocratic and exhibit a different attitude. The intensity that I put in a stadium where Eibar always demands the maximum, made him be the absolute owner of the game and disarm the rival. From its maximum concentration, Real Madrid unleashed its best football, signing the best moments of its season and becoming untouchable. The goals were rewarding their high level
At Rodrygo's stellar moment, Zidane made a decision that caused many to call him crazy before the start of the game. Feel the player who has knocked down the door of the first team of Real Madrid and left him without minutes against Eibar after his triplet in the Champions League. I paused the birth of an 18-year-old star and had a guide with the players who have been in the background for this irruption. Ownership more than a month later for Lucas Vzquez, who responded by giving everything he had and providing the claw that a scenario like Ipurua demands. Minutes for Vinicius who has gone badly from the recurring comparison with his compatriot, even if they are totally different players. It is Zidane's hand and his way of having a large part of his workforce.
Electric, direct, skilled. The true image of Eden Hazard appeared with Real Madrid and the whole team benefited from it. The Belgian cares little if he makes matches like the one he signed against Eibar, connecting with everyone, being the benchmark in attack to invent every time he received the ball. I left actions to frame in case the auctioneer had refined in the definition. Heels, cuts, speed changes, rabona centers. Hazard enjoyed the end of white.
There are already five consecutive games in which Real Madrid does not fit goal with Thibaut Courtois in the goalkeeper. It is the best moment of the Belgian since his arrival, key to the improvement in the results for his firmness. Before Eibar he did not have to leave saving stops as in the last matches, thanks also to the defensive improvement of the block, and he continues to gain weight the number of minutes without receiving goals from the rivals, 533. With his mark he exceeds the best record of Keylor Navas to claim against those who did not want the departure of the Costa Rican goalkeeper.
For the reconstruction of Real Madrid, the entry of Fede Valverde in the center of the field has been key. It has become indisputable and has caused Luka Modric to have a different role in substitution. I received the opportunity in Ipurua, so that Toni Kroos had a rest, and brought out his quality football. I understood that in order to play more you will have to sacrifice yourself and leave defensive actions full of effort without looking at the advantage on the scoreboard. And with the ball he showed the player he was accustomed to Real Madrid and that drives him to win the best individual prizes. Modric took out his pride to ask for more prominence. With the few midfielders available to Zidane it was necessary for everyone to reach their best competitive level.
