The Real Madrid equalised home in front of the Manchester City (3-3) in a night for the forget of Jude Bellingham. In spite of the frantic rhythm that, by moments, imperó on the lawn, the international English grieve had incidence in the game, prejudiced by a plan of game of Carlo Ancelotti that dumped all the danger 'merengue' to the sides, mainly leftwards with the tandem Vinicius-Rodrygo.

Further of some destello of quality, with a pair of dribblings and pipes near of the half of the field, the one of Stourbridge completed a quite grey party, far of the arch and with little participation in the rival area. The complete English 27 of 31 passes (87 %), but hardly tested with a shot diverted and only could take out a fault to the rivals.

In principle, the '5' outlined like the 'false 9' of the team, a work that recayó in 'Vini'. In the complement, the '7' returned to his natural position like left-handed extreme, but the wear and the fault of ideas isolated even more to the ex footballer of the Borussia Dortmund. The only positive of the day for the 'pichichi' of LaLiga was to finish the party without cards, since a yellow had left him out of the duel of turn in Manchester the next week.

Ancelotti, 'satisfied' with the party of Bellingham and the Madrid

In the press conference post party, the Italian technician referred to the performance of the mediocentro English. "The work that have done at the front has been very good, have worked very well. They have not had (the City) the freshness that are used to to have usually. His work (the one of Bellingham) has allowed us have a good control of the party", explained on the work of the '5'. And it is that, unlike other meetings, Jude was more far of the area, giving a hand to Camavinga in the high pressure that tried to exert the Madrid.

In this sense, 'Carletto' admitted his inconformidad by the tie with a sentence that denotes resignation with a positivist mask. "What wanted to was to take a small advantage, but have to be satisfied. We have competed and if we do it also in the turn can happen", puntualizó the one of Reggiolo. For the the 'merengues', the turn will be very hard because of the obligation to win to advance to 'semis', a mission that will have to face without Aurélien Tchouaméni (drop by sanction).
