- Tribute: Applause and silence from the Bernabéu in honor of David Gistau
- Narration: So we live the game
- First, this is the classification
A football night begins with the tribute to a journalist who leaves us. Good thing. It was David Gistau, who exercised the profession and Real Madrid in the same way: with emotions and without sides. Deserved. The night followed with another David who is not called David, but who makes each match a fight against the Philistines. It is Iago Aspas, who has more criteria than goal, which is to say, and everything that invokes the Atlantic soul, from the courage to curse. Aspas put Celta in the direction of the martyrdom goal of a Bernabeu who saw Courtois fly before flying his own to his nirvana, the comeback, but it was not a day for cursed, not even the goalkeeper Ruben, but for heroes, as Aspas, as who emulated him in the outcome, Denis Suarez, or as David, our David. An entire match, from start to finish, was the best tribute. [Narration and statistics: 2-2]
The show was better than the result for Madrid, which leaves two points and reduces its network in the lead to one when there is only one more day before the classic. Each encounter will be, from now on, a small battle. A passionate outcome awaits.
What Aspas represents for your team has no comparison. Not even Messi, the best soloist surrounded by excellent performers. Aspas is the two things and, in addition, the leader and the extension of the coach in the field. He does not stop giving instructions to others. But it is also a strange case in this stateless football, because it is only in its midst. In this Celta better than the classification says, Aspas is the pill of self-esteem.
In a few minutes, the Galician footballer found the pass for Smolov between Varane and Carvajal, who may be criticized for lack of attention. The Russian striker made a splendid control in the race and defined with the coldness proposed by his latitude. For this Madrid that has grown since defensive security, it was a blur. For Celta, an opportunity to settle in the field in the way his coach had thought, which aligned three centrals. In advantage on the scoreboard, he could already delay the 'lanes' to form in a 5-4-1 that would greatly complicate the attack of Madrid.
The brothers García Junyent, Óscar and Roger, are heirs of 'late-crucifixism', but they exercise it without prejudice or dogmas. During the first half they turned the offensive phase of Madrid into a torment, delivered the Zidane team to centers without a natural auctioneer in the area. Benzema finishes but it's something else, more things. In the outcome, they were right with the changes, Denis Suárez and Santi Mina, makers of the tie.
The French coach returned to 4-3-3, opting for Hazard's return as a starter and Bale's lineup. Probably, the line that was on the official road map but the waters are like the parties, have a life of their own, and force them to improvise in the middle of the crossing. The only thing we can say about Zidane is that circumstances, such as Bale's injuries and, above all, Hazard, have prevented us from knowing more. The background speaks of feeling more comfortable when he has had one more midfielder. Before Celta, he did not initially have it, with Modric and Isco on the bench, and that left him with vision and last pass in front of a line of five, without being solved by the overflow or the ball into space, because it did not exist.
Hazard was found recovered and active. He is an electric footballer who will excite the nervous system of Madrid, something necessary in a team that grows collectively but has lost explosions. The Celtic defense was not the best context, but as soon as speed overflowed it, after the break, Hazard had the space he likes. He had intervened before in a triangulation with Benzema and Bale that did not end in goal but it was the best of the game. It was, however, the way. The goal came in the same way, thanks to the French process and the arrival of Marcelo to the line. His back pass was hosted by the Kroos network, which is like a Swiss watchmaker. It doesn't even mess up.
Broken the spaces, then yes, it was the dominating Madrid and went to his hunt Hazard. The Celtic goalkeeper, naive, measured badly and made a useless penalty. Sergio Ramos executed what looked like a sentence, but Oscar had one hand left, and he played it big with his double partner, Denis-Santi. What they did lived up to the match and the tribute.
