Magia Brasileña y precisión Francesa para concretar una goleada y triunfo de la casa blanca (ESP-ENG)
We arrived to Sunday, day of reflection, rest, get organized and leave everything ready to start the week.... For us content creators here at Hive you could say it's something similar 🤔, depending on where we make life on the platform we can cover the actions just mentioned, in my case, today is a Sunday of analysis and sharing with the whole community immersed in sports and active life, about what? Well, about one of my favorite topics, soccer and for which I enjoy being present in my blog, for this we will direct the look at what happened yesterday in the Santander League where the 32nd day was carried out in which each time there is less to know the great champion or maybe we already have it in front of us and it is only a matter of time.
Real Madrid-Almería, one of those matches that does not arouse emotions and less if you do not have affinity with any of these clubs, for the curious like me it calls our attention for other reasons and it is to discover if there will be the margin of error that can put an end to the doubt of the previous question, the truth is that everything about Madrid is reason enough to bring it here before you 😁, so join me and let's talk about everything that happened on the field of play.
One more day was disputed, the 32nd to be exact, with few points left in play that can make the difference in the standings, with Barcelona enjoying the air of the top and with a comfortable difference, against a Madrid that had in their hands opportunities to approach the culés, but let escape, this match against Almería was another in which they hoped to add and that their rival stumble to put to work the calculator of possible scenarios.
Knowing the realities of the merengue team it was time to know the 11 chosen by DT Ancelotti, who once again chose to rotate some positions on the field, as first mention we had Courtois who returned to action after leaving his goal absent due to health problems, the Belgian is an essential piece for the merengue defense and that was noticed in the previous day's match against Girona.
Moving forward we would see Lucas Vázquez as part of the defense instead of Carvajal, who would be on the bench as a possible alternative.
In the center of the team, the Croatian Modric and the Uruguayan Valverde will be left out of the squad due to injury, Ceballos and Tchouameni will be replaced by the experienced Kroos.
Finally, in the attacking zone, the trident of Brazilian wingers (Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo) and Frances Benzema at the forefront of the attack.
A decent team regardless of the names on the field, Real Madrid has support on the bench due to the good response that the substitutes have been giving the Italian tactician.
The match kicked off and as expected, Madrid quickly took control of the game, taking advantage of the flanks from minute 1 to quickly move the ball to the opponent's zone. The first chance would be Merengue with the usual protagonist Vinicius Jr who showed his ease of overflowing and dribbling that unlike the previous match, this time he had his partner Benzema who received this first assistance from the Brazilian, ending all in the hands of the goalkeeper Fernando Martinez, this was the first indication of how the match would go.
With a similar play to the previous one, Madrid would again reach the area around Martinez, this time with more effectiveness from Frances taking advantage of the assistance of the skilled Vinicius with the outside of the boot, the white house managed to add to the scoreboard after just 4 minutes.
The reunion of the Brazil-France duo was doing a lot of damage on the left flank, Madrid's arrivals were constant in that area, however this day would bring inspiration in some and one of these was Rodrygo, that player that when he is at his best level is impressive the things he can achieve despite his young age, facing scenarios with such calm as are the Champions League duels, with the attitude of an experienced player. The Brazilian player who would look for the ball to the center of the field to join with a couple of passes with Lucas Vázquez, the play would end with Rodrygo on the right flank being marked by Samu Costa, he would get rid of that mark with an incredible ball stepping leaving the Almería player in place, to finally be an assistant once again for the hunter of the small area Benzema who finished the play with a goal in the 17th minute, things were placed 2-0 very early in the match without a close reaction from Almería.
This time things were going as planned, the changes were working and helping to get the positive result that was so much wanted, but as if the good moment of the Brazilians was not enough of a headache for the Indálicos, the penalty sentence would come to make the match even more rounded for the white team, Lucas Vázquez would suffer a foul on the edge of the area where the referee would not hesitate to whistle and change the action for a penalty, Karim Benzema would be the one in charge of a possible sentence of the match and from the penalty spot he would show his usual security deceiving the goalkeeper and scoring the 3-0 of the match in the 42nd minute and his hat-trick that would be significant since the Merengue striker would become the 4th highest scorer in the history of Liga Santander surpassing Hugo Sanchez.
Almeria had no resistance to the Merengues' attacks, but the first half would not end in blank, after a mistake in the marking by Rüdiger and Kroos that lost the reference of Lazaro who entered the area all alone to score the discount and go to the locker room with a 3-1.
The second half arrived and Madrid did not change their attitude that despite the result, they would continue looking to increase it even more and the truth is that the team had good rhythm and dynamics, everything seemed to work out, especially because their offense was so well lit. The account for the white house would not end here and the goals would also come from outside the area, in this match the starting lineup of Rodrygo would be very efficient for Carletto, the Brazilian would try from a distance after receiving the pass to the middle of Ceballos and would take a shot to the incredible and unexpected angle signing the 4-1 in the 47'.
Almeria, with the objective of not ending up with more goals than to turn the game around, would continue to resist having a Madrid team that seemed to have no mercy... Or at least that's what it seemed, since in a very strange way a play would come out for the visiting team where Kroos would make a mistake in a very short pass, the German, who was very precise, would have his moment of lack of concentration which would be intercepted by Lazaro, who in a joint play with Portillo, would cross a ball that would take advantage of the ball to the goal, The ball was crossed by Portillo and Lucas Robertone headed the ball in at 61', a 4-2 score that was misleading for what had been experienced in most of the match, but it was still a discount on the scoreboard due to the lack of concentration of the Merengues, perhaps because of the comfort of the result or the feeling of superiority.
After the Almeria's discount, Madrid had some dangerous plays that, due to offside and lack of precision, did not materialize, including some very good passing sequences where the ball ended up crashing against the post. The score remained intact for the rest of the second half.
The Almeria team subdued by an inspired Madrid where their strikers had one of those brilliant days where they bring out all their talent, another remarkable situation is the forced departure of Vinicius due to discomfort, an alert for Ancelotti for the commitments for the white house that are just around the corner, Real Madrid needs all its arsenal if it wants to win titles this season.
So colleagues of the community gave as culminated this match of the 32nd day, a Santander League becoming a story with an expected end, but it is still a commitment that the club must leave its best version and while there are pending days there I will be there to have content and place it on the table for discussion and know their views. With this I can only wish you a happy Sunday and I hope to see you soon in a next opportunity!
