Real Madrid's defeat against Athletic (1-0) left many points for the analysis of Carlo Ancelotti's decisions and none have been positive. The Italian 'happens' of his most expensive players

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The Real Madrid received a painful bathroom of reality in Saint Mamés and the memories of what sucedió in the season 2014-2015 are more present that never. They have fallen in the quarter-finals of the Glass of Rey and all the team is in the eye of the hurricane; Carlo Ancelotti the first after his decisions that have not been of the all hit.

The Italian failed in his approach and could not react neither improve to the Madrid with the changes. Marcelino, by the contrary, learnt of his errors in the Supercopa of Spain and reinvindicó to win the pass to the semifinals. It has been a result and party, in general, dramatic for the Real Madrid that left clear an important appearance: it seems that the whites only can shine when Karim Benzema, but sometimes neither is sufficient.

The merengues have, however, a very complete staff and several options for the forward, but Carlo Ancelotti only trusts his fixed players. In fact, in Saint Mamés forgot completely of Eden Hazard, Gareth Bleat and Luka Jovic, three of the costliest signings of the last decade in the Madrid that have happened on tiptoe by the team in this season.

Hazard Was the only that heated, but did not go in. Only they went out from the bench Camavinga and Isco. Of five possible changes in ninety minutes. Ancelotti Left in the bench, once again and -almost- as always, to 261 million euros in the bench in question of signings, remembering the 101 that paid by Bleat, other 100 by Hazard and 60 by Jovic. The situation begins to be more than alarming, because neither react the players and neither Ancelotti has they.

The ex of the Everton bet by an offensive without a leading pure centre. Marco Asensio split like false nine, whereas Rodrygo and Vinícius Jr appeared by the two extremes, although they came of a long trip from Brazil and to play with the selection in front of Paraguay. Zero rest for both... And the bet failed at all, because they also happened unobserved in the meeting.

It supposed that in the second part Ancelotti went to look for shake to the team, but was all the contrary. It did not opt by notable changes further of the of Isco by Asensio (that it finished having a clear opportunity in the discount). And at all more. The Italian does not trust absolute in the three players and 'risk' to his to go in in a labyrinth without final, again.

Ancelotti Does not want controversial

'Carletto' Can say a thing, but his actions show the contrary. It has tired that week by week they question him his decisions on reason do not play Bleat or Hazard and in Saint Mamés exploded in front of the press: "I do not have at all that say. Why speeches of Bleat, Hazard and Jovic? Why no speeches of Ceballos, of Carvajal? All those that have not played will be that they are punished, no only these three".

The technician added, besides, that does not exist punishment any to nigún player of the staff merengue: "there is not at all. I have taken decisions that have not involved to these players, but to be honest you have to speak of Ceballos, that has not played neither a minute. Neither of the others that were in the bench, like Vallejo... They are to the same level", sentenced.
