Real Madrid – La Liga At fault for both the first half goals
Lucas Vazquez was the player in the spotlight for Real Madrid in the first half of their Supercopa de Espana semi-final against Athletic Club, and not in a good way.
He made two mistakes while filling in for Dani Carvajal at right-back, with Raul Garcia benefitting on both occasions.
In the 18th minute, a bad pass ended up in the first goal as Raul Garcia was played in against Thibaut Courtois and finished.
Lucas then made another mistake in the 38th minute as he misjudged a ball into the area and fouled Inigo Martinez, giving away a penalty. The Real Madrid player didn’t even argue against it, even collecting a yellow card for the foul.
From the penalty spot, Raul Garcia didn’t hesitate and made it 2-0.
