The problems are accumulating in Ancelotti's Madrid and the staging against Espanyol has been the best proof of this

They are lit the alarms by a Real Madrid that accumulates three parties without knowing the victory, with two consecutive defeats (first the tie in front of the Villarreal, afterwards defeats in front of the Sheriff and now Espanyol...) That leaves a very clear message: the things are not so well as they seemed and that Carlo Ancelotti will have to get dressed of 'magician' after the stop of selections to rescue to a team with very few ideas in the offensive, further of Karim Benzema, and that in defence 'shine' by his lacks.

In Cornellà the Madrid was very inferior in the first part and saw surpassed after the so much of Raúl of Tomás, an ex madridista, that opened the marker. They did not have answers in the field and from the band Ancelotti did not move at all, no by fault of resources, but because it was, also, surpassed in front of an Espanyol very serious. It was the Italian, precisely, the most signalled by the image that was leaving his team, tomando in account all the 'experiments' that is doing lately.

To the Madrid him evidence the irregularity. They are many the changes that 'Carletto' implements split after party and his players remain without answers, but seems that he is the only that does not darse. Of there, probably, it is born the weakness that are showing to the moment to defend, that is them 'condemning' in this start of season. A lot already it does Thibaut Courtois, but is impossible that also assume the work of those who has by in front. In the centre of the field, also there are problems.

In front of the pericos, went out Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Valverde and Camavinga. All imprecise and losing too many balloons, even the most veteran, that were without tarpaulin during all the agreement and remained without bellows very soon. Up, Vinícius and Benzema were incisive as always, but also without tarpaulin. It remains the feeling that the Madrid recae to the shoulders of both and that, when they are not fine, suffers too much.

Slight mejoría in the second part

With the changes of the second part, the Madrid showed a slight mejoría, but went by behind in the marker by 2-0 after the so much of Aleix Vidal. The entry of players like Rodrygo, Hazard and Jovic, sorpresivamente, changed him the face to the team. Probably, they deserve more time on the field. The Serbian, for example, was very hit and was the one who gave the pass for the goal of Karim Benzema. And it is something that Ancelotti has to annotate, because it has showed that frees a lot of to the French and, without place to doubts, can be últil for the team.

With the Brazilian there is little that say, because almost whenever it plays, is effective: it causes faults, goes up the speed and generates danger. This happened in Cornellà, but was not sufficient. Finally, the discussed Eden Hazard once again was hit. Already it had warned in front of the Sheriff and against the Espanyol went back to leave details of quality. It annotated the goal of the tie. A golazo, if we are honest, but came preceded of a very clear position advanced of Karim Benzema and finished without going up to the marker.
