Second time in history, Levante defeated Real Madrid. Yesterday, Real Madrid could not score a goal after 7 shots on target.
What happened with Zinedine Zidane’s team?
As you may know, Real Madrid was leader of La Liga for five weeks in a row. The team was showing passion and a really good conversion rate with shots. Unfortunately to fans, Real Madrid drive has changed in last two weeks. Zidane’s team went from perfect to worst in just two weeks. First, the team dropped two important points at Bernabeu against Celta Vigo. Yesterday, Los Blancos lost the match against Levante, a team that struggles in the middle of standings.
Many shots on target but no goal
Twitter exploded yesterday, especially about Karim Benzema. The French striker is the only striker Zidane trust but unfortunately, Karim is not the level of Real Madrid. Los Blancos struggles to score goals while Benzema misses many chances. As you may know, Benzema has renewed a contract with Real Madrid until 2022. It seems that Zidane won’t focus on another striker until 2022. The team struggles to score goals and Zidane does not even include Jovic in the squad.
Real Madrid had seven shots on target in 90 minutes. Karim Benzema had one-on-one chances with the goalkeeper and failed both times. Eden Hazard also had a one-on-one chance in the second half but he could not even shot the ball properly. It seems that Real Madrid has the worst period of the season. The team can’t convert easy moments into the goals.
Morales scores easy goal
Everyone was concerned with Real Madrid’s defensive tactics. Mendy has changed the course of Real Madrid’s defense. Unfortunately, when Marcelo is playing team can’t defend well. The same scenario happened yesterday evening when Mendy has not even played a minute.
