- Facts: The worst start in the history of Real Madrid in the Champions League
Nightmare for Real Madrid and wet dream for others. The possibility of seeing the whites fall in the Europa League is going to put a lot of morbidity to the usually bland group stage, where the club that has won the tournament has always passed round. Now he will have to be very careful, if he does not want to suffer the penance of playing the second continental competition. The draw is little to an opponent like the Bruges, but it is a relief for the Zidane team's accounting. That goal of Casemiro is worth gold, because it leaves theirs depending on themselves and with a much better color than they would have had this morning in the case of losing. He avoided the disaster.
On a frantic night, marked by premature local defensive mistakes, the Bruges grew bigger at the astonishment of the Bernabéu . "We did nothing in the first part," dared to sum up the substitute Vinicius , more blunt in the analysis than in the field, something run over when his coach gave him a rope. His replacement in favor of Lucas Vázquez was commented in the previous one.
The young carioca saw desperate, like the rest of the stadium, the two Belgian zarpazos, in paths pifias back. The afternoon turned from the warmth to the cold wind that sticks in the ribs. An appointment that came with a routine appearance, one more in these first sets of the Champions League, almost always little for Madrid at home, soon became a total anguish for the white fans, who looked at the calendar and sweating by the threat of an early elimination in the Champions League , he does nothing the territory of his dreams. «We were playing good games in the League. It was a good sequence but today we play the regular first part again, ”acknowledged Casemiro, the savior again. There are several important goals of a defensive midfielder.
"He is sick of the gut and has gone to the hospital," explained the Brazilian about Courtois , beaten by the public and with stomach problems. Areola came out , who is demonstrating security in his appearances. The debate on the goal could return due to the bad position of the Belgian in some of the goals conceded.
«Blame him? We all did it wrong. We did a bad first time. We were not concentrated. We got a goal of laughter. I keep the reaction later, we play more with heart and dedication, ”said Zidane, very angry with the many Belgians. "If we press, such a rival does not exist," he said angrily. «We have to do more and better», closed Sergio Ramos , author of the first goal yesterday.
