It is interesting that thanks to the careless and colorless game of the last 15 minutes of the match, Real Madrid wasted 6 points.
It all started with Valladolid’s home break. The hosts were winning with a minimal advantage until the 87th minute. However, Guardiola snatched the victory from Real Madrid.
The 1-1 draw with Valencia followed the mentioned match (Carlos Soler’s 77th-minute goal), 2-2 with Celta (Santiago 85 ‘), Levante 1-0 (Morales 78’), and Real Betis 2- 1 (Tello 82 ‘).
Real Madrid’s unfavorable CL situation
As for the Champions League, Zidane’s team do not have a favorable situation at this tournament as well. There the two most important games were conceded shortly before the referee’s final whistle. Specifically, at the match against the Parisians at the Santiago Bernabéu, Real were defeating the opponent with two unanswered goals. Still, at the 81st and 83rd minutes, Mbappe and Sarabia scored and fixed a draw on the table.
An almost similar scenario unfolded in Manchester City’s first-ever home eighth-final. Los Blancos were winning with a minimal score until the 78th minute and then gave two chances to the opponents to find the net within five minutes.
So for the remainder of the season, Zinedine Zidane and the team have a lot more to mobilize and concentrate on at the end of the matches so that they don’t lose the title.
The problems do not end there
It has been officially confirmed that Thibaut Curtua and Marcelo are injured and will have to undergo a therapeutic course. Both Brazilian and Belgian will have to miss the match against City.
It’s also worth noting that Nacho and Carvajal are fighting the flu, with Isco having lumbar problems.
Zinedine Zidane is in trouble and is thinking of alternatives.
