Blow at the table of Real Madrid. When more voices call for the signing of a striker, Lopetegui's squad showed to be plenty of resources with Bale, Asensio and Vinicius as banners against Juventus. The current three-time European champion played a serious game in which he alternated moments of control with speed in attack. The calls to take a step forward responded, while Vinicius continues to give glimpses of what a football player of the era can be.[[[[This is how we live the match live]
The second test of Lopetegui's Real Madrid was against Juventus without Cristiano Ronaldo. The absence of the Portuguese left morbid a duel that still had pending accounts after the Cardiff final of 2017 and the quarterfinal round of this year in which a Benatia penalty over Lucas Vázquez gave the pass to a merengue team that ended up raising the Thirteenth.
The white starting eleven already counted with the inclusion of some World Cup players such as Keylor Navas, Kroos or Isco. Lopetegui bet again on ball control and possession as weapons against an Allegri that reinforced the left wing with the inclusion of Joao Cancelo ahead of Alex Sandro.
Bale is the leader
However, the touch of Madrid was inert in the early stages and could barely reach the goal of Szczesny with danger. For more inri, in the 12th minute, a harmless center of Cancelo was diverted by Carvajal and the ball ended in the net without Keylor could avoid the first goal of the match. Despite being a friendly, the whole bianconero he took it seriously and used it so aggressively that even Benatia had to see the yellow just start with a hard entry on Isco.
Little by little Lopetegui's men were gaining meters and, finally, taking advantage of their superiority. All this was reflected in the 39th minute with a whiplash from Bale from outside the area. The Welshman, with his star stripes, took his first opportunity to put her in the squad with his left. I do not know how the forward thought of loading his leg and shooting Szczesny.
The final section of the first part served to unleash Madrid and leave behind the slow circulation of the ball. Reguilón, who started in front of Theo and continues to leave great details, was about to turn the scoreboard in the blink of an eye. As well he highlighted the presence of Valverde in the eleven and not that of a Marcos Llorente that could leave on loan before the end of the market. The Uruguayan, along with Kroos and Ceballos, guided the center of the white field that began to get stuck and was improving with the passing of the duel.
Asensio and Vinicius, youth to power
Lopetegui moved the bench in the resumption and it took little time to give good news the attack couple formed by Asensio and Vinicius. The Brazilian overflows by the left wing and leaves a free ball so that the Balearic forward to Real Madrid. The sensations that the former Flamengo continues to leave are of a great player's project and a different footballer. It is not the typical runaway foal fruit of youth and inexperience, but has temper and vision of game.
The improvement of the white team continued its course and a technical wonder of Asensio meant the 3-1 in the 56th minute. He left the Spanish international to Benatia and then Szczesny was more than weak. From the lack of fluidity in the first minutes of the match, Madrid had gone to the wasp pecks. Even Vinicius had the fourth in an action in which he entertained himself excessively.
Another one of the pearls arrived this summer to the capital of Spain. Lunin made his first stop with Real Madrid when he took a shot from Cancelo with his legs. Then, in a defensive oversight, Chiellini was left alone against the Ukrainian, but failed to cross on the clearest occasion of Juventus throughout the match.
The verticality of the Lopetegui team was a constant problem for Juventus. Further, the hierarchy of a good Llorente it complicated more the life to an Italian equipment that had been surpassed by Real Madrid in the greater part of the party with an irrefutable clarity.
The Whites signed their first triumph of the preseason and ratified the good feelings that were left in the debut against Manchester United despite the defeat. Bale showed that he can be the star and Asensio and Vinicius welcomed the Real Madrid of the future that is already present. The first year after Cristiano is not of depression but of illusion.
