Calendar of FC Barcelona

With the permission of Eden Hazard, that went back to disappoint by enésima time since it arrived to the Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane went definitely the big signalled of the defeat of the whites against Chelsea in the 'semis' of Champions League. The 'blues' dominated to his antojo to the madridistas and could even golear. Luckily for the merengues, the English were very fallones and only converted two of his arrivals, winning finally by 2-0.

The approach of the French trainer was the first nail in the grave of the whites, that were from the minute one to favour of Chelsea. The Frenchman decided to bet by a system of three head offices and two carrileros, something that already did in the gone and in other parties, although in this occasion entered an odd element. The marsellés planted to Vinicius Jr in the right in a decision controversial that resulted being a disaster tremendo.

The Brazilian, that as extreme right does not be used to to feel comfortable, had a ballot complicated like carrilero and did not know to accommodate to these functions. Éder Militao Had to do the functions of side in a lot of occasions and this descompensó to all the defence and even to the centre of the field. That put to 'Vini' here had been an error was something that perceived from the beginning, but 'Zizou' did not take split until in the hour of meeting.

The technician merengue did not remove to the Brazilian until the 60 to take out to Fede Valverde, that substituted him like carrilero. Besides, Marco Asensio went out like carrilero left by Ferland Mendy. Two changes that could have him changed the face to the Madrid, that in this moment fell 1-0, but that did not leave notice because the French trainer did not want to 'touch' his system. The míster wanted to 'die' with the 3-5-2 and with this decision put another nail in the grave of his team.

Chelsea, dominador to the against and impenetrable in defence, lived very comfortable in the second time and had until five or six very clear occasions of goal that wasted. Only by this reason the merengues arrived with life at the end of the duel, although this only was a mirage. In the 85, Pulisic confined in the area by the right, threatened in front of Courtois and gave him the goal to Mount, that marked to pleasure and sentenced the semifinal, leaving to the ones of Chamartín out of the final.

Zidane left without options to his Madrid

The defeat of the Madrid was indisputable and the whites even could give thank you of not falling goleados. Zidane did not give with the key in any moment and prejudiced clearly to his footballers, that finish desfondados in front of the machinery 'blue'. An elimination expected after seeing the gone and deserved seeing the eliminatory that leaves 'touched' to the trainer madridista by his inexplicable approach and his controversial decisions.
