Starting with confidence, Madrid has created a series of early opportunities. Eden Hazard With a shot, Casemiro aimed at the goal from half of himself, but at the other end Thibaut Courtois He was wary of a goal-bound cross from Manuel Sanchez of Osasuna.Hazard was brilliantly denied by the goalkeeper Sergio Herrera, Vinissius Jr. shot into the side net and followed up by shutting out two headers from Militao before Chimmy Avila ruled out an offside goal.
Militao approached again after half-time and acted as a substitute Rodrigo Wide shot before Militao finally found the net in another header and Casemiro’s miscontrolled efforts sneaked in to ensure victory.
The first half was a more fluid and aggressive display than we saw at Real Madrid.They may not have scored, but there were plenty of opportunities, and there were moments when they were offered the appetizing potential offered by. Karim Benzema/ Hazard Front 2-If only the latter can maintain good health-it became clear momentarily. But in the end, the game became a practice of patience, and Militao made a breakthrough.
There was a promise with young people even in the middle stage Antonio Blanco Look at the house with Casemiro. The swing has been seen by academy observers on a one-to-one basis for several years. If he maintains this form, he will give Zinedine Zidane a chance to rest. Toni Kroos And Luka Modric More often.
These opportunities were not lost as Madrid was repeatedly rejected by keeper Elera in the first half. It may have come back later to annoy them, as Osasuna tightened after the interval before the late Madrid rally reopened the visitors.
The manager’s evaluation is a perfect score of 10
8– Zidane rested Claus and Modric in anticipation of the second leg of the Champions League next week, but given Madrid’s return to the title race in the mid-week defeat in Barcelona, no major changes could be made. It was. Attackers are Benzema, Hazard, Vinicius, Marco Asensio Everything was pushed into XI. The coach took advantage of all five changes when refreshing the team later. Isco, Rodrigo and Miguel Gutierrez are all influential.
Player Rating (1-10; 10 = Highest. Players referred after 70 minutes will not get a rating)
Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, 7- He has only scored one goal in Madrid’s last six games and has successfully dealt with Sanchez’s spinning cross and has been truly tested only once in the game.
DF Alvaro Odrio Zora, 7- It’s one of his great games and offers something in the future, even if it never convinces critics to defend.
DF Raphael Varane, 6- After feeling uncomfortable prior to the Chelsea match, I played only for the first 45 minutes before withdrawing as a precautionary measure.
DF Edel Gabrieo, 9– The misplacement of the back pass in the first half ended in an own goal, but everything after that was positive. He could have scored with two headers and another acrobatic effort before he finally broke the deadlock. Since joining the team last month, it has exceeded all expectations.
DF Marcelo, 7- Accurate delivery provided the hazard with the best opportunity in the first half.
Midfielder Casemiro, 7- I’m confident that his shot across the halfway line can be anything. He was lucky with his goal as a heavy first touch from Benzema’s pass defeated the keeper. This is the seven goals of the season and not bad for a “defensive” midfielder.
Midfielder Antonio Blanco, 8– It worked well when he started playing against Cadiz and looked even better here. A very promising player who is absolutely comfortable at this level, moving the ball with calm authority.
FW Eden Hazard, 7- He played 71 minutes on his first start since January. Built on his minutes off the bench this week. With the original back heels in the first half, the shot aimed at the goal was overturned.
FW Marco Asensio, 7- Play on the right side. I’m busy in the first half, including one shot over the bar, but I’m still not completely convinced for 90 minutes.
FW Vinícius Jr., 6- I had a hard time making a consistent impact. Shooting to the side net after 30 minutes was his only note and he took off early.
FW Karim Benzema, 7– Obviously enjoying the hazard company. Casemiro later played a nice through ball to secure three points.
DF Nacho Fernandez, 7- He exchanged varane in half time and was not overtested.
FW Rodrigo, 7- It seemed more likely to score sooner than his compatriot Vinicius.
DF Miguel Gutierrez, 7- A similar swap with Marcelo. Immediately burst forward and find Asensio on the left.
MF Isco, NR- I came for a hazard. After a quick footwork in the box, he approached Madrid’s third goal.
FW Sergio Arribas, NR- Played for the last few minutes.
