Salute the luck, Real Madrid fell behind Barcelona

Real Madrid paid the price for wasted opportunity and a bit of unlucky after being Athletic Bilbao held 0-0 at the Bernabeu at 18 La Liga to fall behind in the competition with rivals Barcelona in championship race.


This was the third draw in just a week (previously split points with Valencia and Barcelona) of Real Madrid, leaving them to lead by the Barcelona leader 2 points (39 compared to 37). However, in fact, in all three draws, apart from glitches of the strikers, coach Zinadine Zidane’s army has somehow made friends with bad luck.

In the early match this morning, the trio of strikers Kazim Benzema – Rodrygo – Vincius Junior Real Madrid created a game that overwhelmed and rarely allowed Athletic Bilbao’s goal to be peaceful. However, midfielder Toni Kroos and the aforementioned trio failed to beat the crossbar, vertical column and the god of luck.

Coach Zidane did everything to strengthen the attack when launching all attacking personnel like Gareth Bale and Luka Jovic on the field but Real Madrid still could not break the deadlock. “It is not bad luck, nor complacency. There is no reason to be depressed about this, we need to stay calm and keep our heads cold to continue. We have created many opportunities and if we take advantage of it, things will be different. I just feel sorry for the players when they deserve to get 3 points”, coach Zidane said after the game.

For Bilbao, they almost cost the Royal team to pay for the waste of opportunity when suddenly flooding in the final minutes of the match, but in turn Kenan Kodro and Asier Villalibre both let the goal go smoothly through the toe of the shoe. But the visitors may be very pleased to leave the Bernabeu with 1 point to continue to adhere to the top of the European Cup next season.

The stalemate of Real Madrid further reflects Lionel Messi’s talent as the superstar has reached the 50th goal of the year in Barcelona’s Alaves 4-1 victory. By overcoming the rival, the Catalan team can enter La Liga’s short winter break in optimism to return to the journey to protect the championship from January 4, 2020.

In the early match, Madrid team Atletico climbed to the top 4 with 32 points after a 2-1 victory at Betis thanks to two goals from Angel Correa and Alvaro Morata. Sociedad continued to impress when he defeated host Osasuna after a rain with a victory that ended with a score of 4-3 and followed Atletico Madrid.
