The Champions League , where Madrid (with Cristiano) was a legend, yesterday gave an ugly bite in the first function of the course. A win that complicates the league and makes it almost impossible to enter as a leader in the round of 16. Things of this tournament, able to read you already in the debut your future of February. That, being optimistic with the future of the whites before the other two rivals of the group, the Galatasaray and the Bruges . Faced with such competition, not achieving second position would be nonsense. He has time to straighten the road in Europe the picture of Zidane, while his demands in the League are more urgent. On Sunday he has to travel to the leader's camp, the always rough Pizjuán, and the next weekend he waits for the Wanda. A 3-0 like last night is not the best way to face visits. If you do not espabila, Real Madrid can enter in October with dangerous grenades, especially for your technician.
«They have surpassed us in everything, in the lead, in the middle ... but above all in intensity, and that bothers me a lot. It has been complicated, ”said Zidane at the press conference, perhaps in the most critical summary that has been heard in his years on the bench. It is also his worst defeat as a coach in the Champions League. It is not the best place, the European ring, to arrive with cough and doubts.
Anybody makes you a suit (the CSKA last year at the Bernabéu, 1-4, for example), much more in Paris, before a PSG who did not need his stellar striker to hit the whites. The Madrid coach did not hide his regret. «I worry about seeing my team without the necessary intensity at this point in the competition, knowing who the opponent is. We knew they would put pressure, but we have almost never entered the game. And without just creating occasions ».
No shots on goal
It was precisely he who recalled a shocking fact for Madrid: he did not shoot (legally) at the door in the whole match. The two shots he made, goal both, ended up annulled by the VAR. «Not creating occasions is rare, with the offensive players we have ...», acknowledged a technician forced, with almost no time, to activate his team to avoid skidding at such early dates. «If you put your leg, you can win duels and be in the game», analyzed the Frenchman, daring in his initial drawing. Without Luka Modric, James's bet on the core didn't work. The truth is that I didn't have many more options to give company to Kroos and Casemiro; or the Colombian or Lucas Vázquez. "There are no excuses. But we have time to improve, ”said the Brazilian midfielder.
In front, the local technician tried to modulate the euphoria logic. There's still a lot. "If someone asks me if we are going to win the Champions League, I get up and leave," Tuchel said with a half smile.
