Real Madrid – La Liga Carlos Carpio’s opinion
Zinedine Zidane salvaged a result and that, along with his impressive CV, should give him enough credit when he says that his Real Madrid aren’t going to give up and that they’ll fight until the end.
But little faith exists nowadays and Real Madrid fans, more than promises, want results, goals and titles.
Los Blancos arrived at Huesca hurt by the absences of Sergio Ramos, Dani Carvajal, Fede Valverde, Lucas Vazquez, Rodrygo Goes, Eden Hazard, Eder Militao, and Isco – in order of importance. But they struggled to beat a lowly ranked side with set pieces.
Toni Kroos and Luka Modric controlled the game, but Real Madrid offered little as they approached the box.
They won their second game from their last five on Saturday, but there’s still a feeling that this side need too many chances to score and it’s clearer to see with each passing game.
It’s more apparent as the opponents get weaker, and what was seen against Huesca had already been witnessed against Alcoyano in the Copa del Rey.
That day, Real Madrid were knocked out because of overconfidence and complacency, which makes it worrying to think about the Champions League.
