In the wake of their cruel defeat against Sheriff Tiraspol (1-2), Real Madrid fell into the den of Espanyol Barcelona (2-1) on Sunday in La Liga.
La Liga was at the party this weekend, with the removal of any gauge in the stadiums, a year and a half after the health crisis. After the crazy night at the Wanda Metropolitano for the clash between Atlético and Barça (2-0), it was the public at the RCDE Stadium in the suburbs of Barcelona who caught fire for the arrival of the Real Madrid and the … victory of theSpanish (2-1) ! Karim Benzema can’t always save his team …
Carlo Ancelotti’s Merengues thus remained on this improbable defeat against Sheriff Tiraspol (1-2) on Tuesday in the Champions League, but also on a scoreless draw against Villarreal (0-0). They were ultimately beaten for the first time in the league and now share the lead with the Colchoneros, who have a lower goal difference.
Madrid are still exploding in defense
Real Madrid’s defensive struggles were once again glaring. On the opening of the score signed Raul de Tomas (17th), a goalscorer trained at Casa Blanca, David Alaba, left side, was particularly caught up in speed on the side. On the goal of the break, Aleix Vidal moved forward full axis, eliminated Nacho from a small bridge, before beating Thibaut Courtois (60th).
The Italian “Mister” tried to upset his team, first by replacing Eduardo Camavinga by Rodrygo back from the locker room, since by throwing Luka Jovic (62nd) and Eden Hazard (72nd). It was “KB9” who closed the gap with an individual action, for his 9th goal in La Liga. His Belgian teammate believed to equalize with a huge recovery but the goal was refused for an offside (84th). Real will not play in La Liga again for 3 weeks, with a… Clasico at Camp Nou!
