- Chronicle: Madrid regains respect in Seville
Real Madrid has gone from the hangover of Paris to the coliderato of the League , with four points of advantage over Barcelona . He took advantage of the picture of Zinedine Zidane on Sunday, giving a serious image in the house of the shield that the championship was up to now. A triumph suffered and of immense value, for what it means in the classification and, mainly, for the mood that gives a team in need of hugs.
Way of the derby, with stop first Wednesday at the Bernabéu before Osasuna, the whites are recomposed thanks to the trade displayed in the Pizjuán, supported by the work of Ramos , Varane or Mendy back and to Benzema , again, up. Five days and five French goals, pichichi with Gerard Moreno. «It is one of the most complicated fields. We were convinced not to make mistakes. We have defended as a very compact block. Very fair result. At least to be calm for a week, after all that is said, ”Sergio Ramos said at the end.
«You have to trust the coach. Talking about others is disrespecting ours. We have shown that we are with Zidane, ”said the captain, wanting to reinforce the figure of the patron. The exit of Marseilles, more than a year ago, opened the door to Lopetegui , in the band of the Pizjuán as tense as the 22 players who jumped on the grass. His nerves paid them with a yellow one to protest a lack of Bale. The local coach spent a good time saying the same thing: "He takes it from me."
The two technicians were one more in the drawing, moving their pieces as a chess board. Tactics won to talent, with tiny battles in every meter, in every set. Low oxygen in the center of the field because of the pressures of both sets.
I was sweating the appointment without work for the goalkeepers, until the talent opened a cat in the form of a pass between the lines. It was James , of course, the thin left-hander who has become the most unexpected signing of Madrid this summer. Nobody takes the Colombian out of the eleven headline, struggling in this work of engagement, between the core and the attack, forced to create and work. So it happens to him, that on the planes of the TV the boy snorts out of the effort. You cannot deny the interest you are putting in this second white stage.
Bale circulates more seriously, as headline as James but without noticeable changes in his way of understanding the trade. In the battle of the first part, he barely appeared, beyond a distant fault that stopped the Sevilla goal. The chances were of Carvajal , to the filtered touch of former Bayern, and before Hazard , meeting both with Vaclik. The two good white opportunities lowered the temperature of the Pizjuán, stubborn in their rancor towards Ramos. Thunder for the Madrid captain every time he touched her. His yellow in the second half, when cutting an Ocampos race, was celebrated as a goal. "If I ever did anything [to sevillism], I apologize," he said.
Those of Zidane knew how to stop the expected Andalusian brios, although they took a while to appear in the opponent's area. The intensity lost in Paris was noticeable, which the Frenchman longed for in that ugly premiere of the Champions League. «We played 90 minutes with personality, all. They all helped each other in the field. Solidarity has been obvious and, above all, defensively, ”said ZZ, with Sevilla well studied. The fluctuation of the crises was at stake. And it is always better that your protagonist is the protagonist of the gatherings. Monday dawns overcast at the Camp Nou.
