Real Madrid 'played' against Real Sociedad last Monday and will reach the derby this Sunday with doubts and with the need to win to continue aspiring to LaLiga. There are players who arrive in good shape, but others who arrive at a bad time
The Real Madrid carried five consecutive victories before the 'prick' against the Real Sociedad of this past Monday. The whites, in spite of the plague of injuries, were taking out the parties advance and were still in the fight by LaLiga and the Champions League. However, they could not against the donostiarras in a duel in which evidenciaron more than ever the lacks of this group merengue.
The madridistas go to arrive to the derbi of this Sunday against the Athletic of Madrid without margin of error. The ones of Zinedine Zidane already are to 5 points of the colchoneros, that besides have a party less, by what in case to fall would remain to 8 with possibility of 11. It would be a distance almost insalvable and therefore the ones of Concha Spine can not allow another 'trip'. They need the 3 points and a failure would suppose to lose almost all his options in the fight by the title.
The problem is that the whites arrive with some doubts after especially his tie against the Real. It was a crash of contrasts in which there were several good news for the derbi and for the future of the team, but also there were shadows that do to be pessimistic. The greater shadow of all was the fault of efficiency up, something that already knew , but that against the Basques was even more notorious that of habit.
The merengues arrived a lot to door and created a lot of occasions, but neither his forwards neither his midfield players hit in the finish. Between all they, Marco Asensio and Mariano Díaz were those that more distinguished remained. The Balearic follows without appearing and in occasions seems a zombie that strolls by the field in search that it arrive him some balloon. The Hispanic-dominican tries it, but does not have quality neither resources as to do notice in front of the absence by injury of Karim Benzema.
This fault of goal is something recurrent in the team, but without the French does even more notorious. Against an Athletic that is used to to armour, the madridistas will need to have a lot of puntería the times that arrive or will be almost impossible that take out something positive of Wanda. However, no everything is bad and the meeting in front of the Real also left lights in shape of returns and of unexpected apparitions like the one of Isco Alarcón.
The lights of the Madrid before the derbi
The malagueño, that already was well in front of the Atalanta, repeated titularity and left a good flavour of mouth. Besides, Rodrygo Goes and Fede Valverde reappeared of injury leaving very good feelings and showing that they can be important in what it subtracts of course. Also Vinicius will arrive well to the derbi after 'save' to the Madrid in front of the realistic. Finally, it fits to stand out that Zidane could have a 'signing' of last hour for the Sunday, since Benzema is almost recovered and could arrive to the party. This news could be key so that the whites take out the three points home of his eternal rival.
