Good evening and welcome to ABC.es. Today we are going to tell you live the development of the match between APOEL and Real Madrid, corresponding to the fifth day of the group stage of the Chanmpions.
When things are not clear, Lucas leaves. Always brings the basics: a young human being running. Running is important. It sounds like Rajoy’s maxim, but yes: running is important. It seems that others are infected. Benzema, for example, started with enthusiasm and crossed the entire field on one occasion in the first minute.
APOEL is a rival for mercy, but they were going to take advantage of it for what, in tactical language, would be called a “psychic readjustment.” The APOEL are calamitous in defense and the only thing they did with something of merit was to press at the beginning. The pressure is already made by almost all teams, and lasts what lasts. But something so simple demonstrates the infinite levels of organization that anything can take. The Madrid responded as almost always, with a disheveled game, a non-style. Not much touch, not much speed. Losses of ball, some cluelessness. The team is perhaps the best season in its history, which also reached an unknown level of play. He accumulated men in the midfield and Isco appeared. He had the ball again and that’s how regularity came in the wins. There should be a general concern in Real Madrid to ensure and deepen that form of play, but the “environment” only seems to worry about whether Benzema scores or not.
Since the days of Mourinhism, as a lyrical resource of the most “pleasant” Florentinism and as a residue of those quarrels with the dogmatism of the Tiquitaca, the idea has spread that Madrid has to play disorganized, or very direct, or crazy. Or even against, which was always the style of Atleti. The method and touch is for others, the Madrid (to believe this sector of Real Madrid) is the club of kidnapping, a mixture of «Spanish fury», spiritism and world class.
So things, the Madrid of Zidane sailed lately by the no-style, by the absence of defined game. Not very direct, not much touch. A mediocrity that before the APOEL could be happy because it broke out finally in goals.
Modric opens the scoring
There was good news. Or the continuation of some. Modric, who had already seemed against Atleti, scored the 1-0 away shot. To say that goalkeeper Nauzet “could do more” would be unfair to the goalkeeper’s abilities.
Madrid fanned their game and before the bleeding of APOEL their forwards sharpened the fang. Cristiano did Benzema this time
and he “worked” the goals. In the first one it was a quick movement for Kroos to attend the approximately nine French; in the second, a gesture of generosity after a nice counter. In both goals, Benzema went head-to-head without being overwhelmed by a scarcely feline goalkeeper. The meritorious Nauzet is the typical porter that no one would ever call “cat”.
Benzema celebrated his goal with Zidane, who has a different patience with him. In between there was a goal by Nacho in a corner; He finished off just one ball combed by Varane.
The APOEL tried to stand up from its ruin but only Aloneftis aroused psychomotor hopes. The media was composed of Vinicius and Morais, but they had nothing to do with Vinicius of “Morais.” Some player was overweight almost amateur.
After the rest the feast continued for a few minutes. The old connection between Marcelo and Cristiano gave way to the fifth, head first. I needed a party like that Christian. Sweat. Sweep goals. Have fun. He combined well, ran some against and even smiled.
It marked the sixth in another play in which the Spaniards Rueda and Nauzet collaborated with a defensive disaster of silent cinema. Benzema pressed (yes, what they read) and Christian walled insatiable and ready. The level of the APOEL is in the continental limits, any consequence of the game would be a deception. The Madrid stars made up their numbers with a rival with whom they would have to collaborate rather than compete.
Zidane gave the final half hour to Theo, Ceballos and Mayoral. Not much happened. It surprised the public morale, which did not stop singing some sad and deep chants, a litany that did not even seem football. It looked like a funeral dirge of atonement.
Madrid already had what he wanted. As the goal has something of habit and another bit of superstition, this match can improve things. Cristiano and Benzema, who were stiff, tuned their noses. They looked like winemakers. The Apoel will have cured what the drought had of psychological. There will be better nights to talk about the game.
