Real Madrid love and go to Celtic at Balaídos (1-4)


Real Madrid still have plenty of room to adapt as they face title contention this season, but Carlo Ancelotti’s plan is going more than well at the moment, even after confirming Casemiro’s exit to Manchester United. They suffered at Balaídos, going from less to more, but carried some important three points, with goleada, thanks to the goals of Karim Benzema, a genius of Luka Modric, Vinícius Jir and Fede Valverde.

Celtic crashed against the madridistas and put him under very high pressure, constantly approaching Thibaut Courtois’ area and denying him the exit at Madrid, which did not arrive to feel comfortable at times, but who cost of his big stars to solve a “complicated” game and add his second victory in a row in the league, with a ‘master class’ from Luka Modric, which does not weigh his 36 years (nor the farewell of his ‘bodyguard’ Casemiro).

The intervention of the referee was also protagonist of the accident. Gil Manzano reported two penalties in less than half an hour, one for each team, by clear hands in the area. At 13′, the Madrid obtained zafarse of the pressure of the celtistas and, after a corner, Wall cut off the arrival of David Praises (direct to the goal) with the hand. Although he protested that it was an involuntary move, after review in the VAR, Madrid did so with the maximum penalty in favor. Karim Benzema has not forgiven eleven meters, right kick, and first as a scorer in this League 22-23.

The joy, however, did not last long. At 23′, in the attempt of a clear round, Militao touched the ball with his hand and was “doomed” to his own. Iago Sails went head-to-head with Courtois and, with a strong, batting shot, signed the tables. The Belgian guessed the launch, but was impossible to remember. Madrid suffered before the pressure, but without much work for its guardameta. Luka Modric was the tiebreaker.

Genialidad by Modric and goleada

The Croatian midfielder collected and sitting on the wall in the front of the area to send a zapatazo with the direct right hand to the square of Marchesín. An authentic golazo, in all the standard. Modric, in any case, didn’t want to go home only with this ‘detail’. In the recovery, became leader again. In a contragolpe, the ’10’ sent a long pass and a medito to Vinícius, the one that left behind in career to Hugo Mallo, encaró to Marchesín to seat it and to beat to the pleasure.

The Madrid, with the result in favor and without pressure, dedicated himself to the attack and turns to increase his advantage. The room arrived very quickly, with a well-played team from the team coached by Carlo Ancelotti. Aurelién Tchoaméni, called to fill Casemiro’s ‘hollow’, stole the ball and started a counter, open for Vinícius, who sent a cross pass in principle for Benzema, the one who slipped. Fede Valverde finished with the ball and, with a powerful and crossed zapatazo, nailed the ball to the long stick. The guinda of the cake for a full party of madridistas.
