Atletico are well ahead in La Liga this time around. Real Madrid and Barcelona are running behind. Real will be able to close the gap if they win against Atletico next Sunday. But how possible! Real survived the defeat against Real Sociedad last night. There are questions about how much the Brazilian star can do against Real Atletico, which has somehow saved his reputation.
The way El Zinedine Zidane’s team came back from the brink of defeat can raise doubts.
Real Madrid drew 1-1 at home against Sociedad last night. At the last minute, the young Brazilian winger Vinicius Jr. saved the team by scoring a goal. Or Real had to leave the field with the dirt of the rate on his head!
The draw widened Real’s points gap against Atletico. Real will be five points behind Atletico before next Sunday’s derby. Neither team scored in the first half. Sociedad opened the scoring in the second half.
Porto put Arsenal’s former left-back Nacho Monreal in the crossbar. Zidane put Vinicius on the field at the end when there was no work with Isco, Mariano and Asensio in the attack. Zidane made a little change in the table after scoring a goal. The team started playing from two centerbacks to three centerbacks. The Brazilian winger did not take long to repay the coach’s confidence. Vinicius brought a valuable point to the team by scoring from the cross of Lucas Vazquez coming from the right side. He got this first goal after 24 matches.
Midfielder Tony Kruse has become the German footballer who has played the most matches for Real Madrid through this match. He played his 309th match last night in a Real jersey. Meanwhile, Mariano Diaz, who got another chance due to Benzema’s injury, played disgustingly. I couldn’t score a goal, I could never score a goal, I didn’t think so.
Real is in the third place of the points list with 53 points after playing 25 matches. Get more news from abdsportstv.com
