The Real Madrid lost in Donetsk on 1 December by 2-0 and complicated the pass to the eighth of final of Champions League. This defeat, added to the one of the Alavés of few days before, put to Zinedine Zidane in the sight. It said that Florentino Pérez, president merengue, was meditando sack him if the staff did not react soon, and gave him by dead person so much to him as to his Madrid.

But the French has a lot of lives and in a week and average has achieved to give him the turn completely to his situation and to the one of his team. His future depended on that the whites went out alive of a week and half very hard, with three duels to life or death. First, against the Seville in Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán; afterwards, in front of the Borussia Mönchengladbach in League of Champions; and finally, in front of the Athletic of Madrid in a derbi that could decide LaLiga.

As if it was not at all, the ones of Zidane achieved to surpass by the minimum (0-1) to the sevillistas in a solid performance of his players. Later, they completed his best meeting of the season against the Mönchengladbach, achieving besides the pass like first of group for eighth. And to finish his week of dream, the Frenchman has quiet mouths surpassing easily this Sunday to an Athletic of Madrid that arrived imbatido.

Of 'Zizou' has criticised his bet by the 'old policeman', his inexplicables decisions, his tactical capacity or his reading of the parties. All the criticisms have been justified in elder or lower measure and few could explain that his Madrid played so little and so bad to football. Nevertheless, when worse were the things, the marsellés has gone back to show that whatever happens and say what say, is more than qualified to train and carry to the victory to his Madrid.

The Madrid has enchufado when worse was

It is indefensible that the whites fall with bang in front of the Alavés, the Cádiz, the Shakhtar or Valencia. At all excuse the performance of the footballers and the abysmal work of his trainer in all these meetings. Nevertheless, in the moment of the truth, when the Madrid was playing his future in Europe and his options in League, Zidane has gone back to react, his players have put the batteries and the madridistas have gone back to work like clockwork Swiss.

It will be necessary to see how much hard this time the big moment of form of the whites, that this course already have showed in several occasions that are of all less reliable. Perhaps it arrive the Athletic this Tuesday and the merengues go back to the walked with a new prick and it was necessary to go back to argue to his technician. But for now, the French and his changing room will enjoy of this victory and of his sweet moment after a week and average in which 'Zizou' has gone back to callar mouths.
