It is quite funny to see that FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are after it during the final sprint in the speed version. In this funny period where games and days intertwine, the leader plays consistently ahead of her rival. History of him put a little pressure it takes. After Eibar last Sunday (3-1), the team of Zidane entered into the heart of the matter with a serious test in Valencia. An outsider less glitz than a few years ago, but sufficiently armed for disturbing her. The challenge was clear : come back to two points of the band to Messi, that is a respectable distance.
The plan of Valencia worked a part-time
The photograph of the first minutes set the scene. The block of Valence, low and compact, imageait a plan as basic as it is effective : leave the possession of the ball at Real, reduce the spaces at the maximum, and deploy rapidly to the recovery. The classic for the band to Benzema, accustomed to this type of configuration. Inspired, the French was quickly noted by shifting Kroos for a first alert (in the 11th).
In the aftermath, Hazard has also stumbled on a Cillessen clever as a cat (12). Valencia has let pass the storm to get out of his camp with a little more personality. Rodrigo, aligned to a point, has been spending a few chills – shot turned away by Courtois (14th) and a disallowed goal (21st). The guardian belgian, he has still ensured that the grain in front of Kondogbia (43rd). In short, there was something missing in Madrid.
It was not until the return of the locker room to see all this beautiful world the second. Without losing its style, the Real has insisted, attack placed, therefore, to find the aperture on a model set in triangle. A change of pace is devastating, Eden Hazard has sparked a movement full axis with Luka Modric before put Karim Benzema on orbit, the number 9 terminating in a flat foot clinical (1-0, 61).

Restless, Hazard (63rd) and Modric (66), yet, they also sought Cillessen still more alone. The break was inevitable. It is made by the returning Marco Asensio, author of a recovery is clear in the reception of a center in the line of Ferland Mendy (2-0, 74th). The stroke of the knife before the coup de grace. Because at the end of the night in madrid, a man took the light : Karim Benzema. After you have matched the immense Puskas to become the 5th best goalscorer in the history of the Real, the French concluded the festival of his own in the flow “sombrero to the right – hit the left” absolutely sumptuous (3-0, 86th). Ultimate glow of an evening without history, for a Real course of her strength.
