The Real Madrid won with the just to the RCD Espanyol in Santiago Bernabéu, in a clash that left clear the differences of football and spirit between the first qualifier of LaLiga and the penultimate. The pupilos of Zinedine Zidane did not need of his best version to impose to the ones of Pablo Machín, that hardly upset to an opponent that did not happen difficulties in spite of playing at all times to half gas.

The calm of the meeting ended in a day plácida for the referee, Jaime Latre, that did not complicate in the few controversies to which confronted . Although they could have marked the party, decided to leave play and only took part when it thought that was strictly necessary, what cost him a discontent to the 'merengues' in some útimos minutes that faced in numerical inferiority.

Well they could have remained with one less the whites at the end of the first time, when Vinicius Jr happened of braked and played the red. The carioca had been admonished by a fault on Diego López, to the that arrolló when it already had the balloon blocado. The excess of revolutions marked the performance of Brazilian for well and for bad, since it went back to show imprecise in the definition and five minutes before the rest could see his second yellow. Again it arrived late the played, and only the referee, that interpreted that there was slip rid him after demolishing to David López.

More doubts even generates a push of Dani Carvajal to Jonathan Calleri, by which the forward 'perico' demanded a penalti. The played sucedió in the discount of the first-half, and the discussion between both turned into a hammer that it kept after the go through changing rooms. The trencilla main of the crash did not do to sound the whistle, and his assistants neither warned him from the room of the VAR.

Mendy Puts in problems to the Real Madrid

The third analysis arrived in the final stretch of the duel, in which Ferland Mendy himself was expelled by double yellow cardboard. Neither with one more attained to step forward the Espanyol, that saw like the Real Madrid expected plácidamente to that the chronometer marked the minute 90. The two entrances of the French to Víctor López were hard, especially a plantillazo in the second that could be perfectly a red direct.

The greater problem for Zidane is that it has remained lame in the left side for the visit to Mestalla. The ex of the Olympique of Lyon will have to fulfil a party of sanction, but Marcelo neither is because it finds lesionado. The marsellés will have to test some alternative, that would go through to form with three head offices, bet by Nacho or displace to Carvajal or Álvaro Odriozola to the left-handed profile.
