One of Real Madrid's most notable players after the 'prick' against Rayo Vallecano was Luka Modric, who started in the starting XI for the first time since the visit to Getafe. The Croatian has not been correct and 'confirms' a very gray statistic

It is innegable that Luka Modric is in the olimpo of the football like one of the best midfield players of the history and that a lot is the merit so that, to his 38 years, keep like one of the references of the Real Madrid. The Croat has known to answer to the requirements, but in this last season has had to do it from a flat second, because the competition is enormous in the centre of the field and, obviously, is not in the same physical conditions to face the level that demands the majority of parties of the madridistas.

In this course, that aims to be the last in Santiago Bernabéu, Modric has contested 28 clashes with the White House, with the novelty that only in in 16 has been headline: 11 in LaLiga, 3 in the Champions League, 1 in the Glass of Rey and another in the Supercopa of Spain. Of these 16 presences in the alignment, have produced 11 victories, three ties and two defeats, precisely the only two falls of the madridistas in what it goes of season.

The 'data' that condemns to Modric

It accuses that, when it plays the Croat, in many of the occasions the Madrid goes to a rhythm 'inferior' and suffers much more. Because although it follows marvelling to the world of the football with his passes milimétricos and magic when it adds to the attack (registers a goal and six assistances in 1.461 minutes), to the hour of the shrinkings and defensive helps has remained very distinguished. Without going further, against the Ray 'sinned' to have little presence and weight in the game of his. Neither a thing neither the another.

The true is that the data of the Real Madrid are demoledores when it plays Modric to title. To date, they have 'punctured' in six occasions: five ties (Seville, Ray in the two parties, Betis and Athletic of Madrid) and a defeat (Athletic), with the 'surprise' that in four of these occasions the Croat has been headline. It does not be necessary to forget how in the visit to the Cívitas Metropolitan (the only time that Ancelotti jointed him, to title, with Kroos) was substituted to the rest.

End of cycle 'sung' in the Madrid

Modric Is not the culprit of the 'errors' and disconnections of the White House, in no case. The madridistas have 'sinned' many times of 'sleep' and put to his rival in the party, but what himself is true is that with the Croat -in spite of his offensive contribution-, loses muscle in the centre of the field. When they are Kroos, Bellingham, Valverde and Tchouameni or Camavinga, the history is different. And it can be the beginning of the end for one of the best midfield players of the histora.
