The Real Madrid was again the Madrid in Champions. After the fateful bad run, the team has turned the page because of a man: Santiago Solari. With the Argentine, he knows nothing other than victory and so it was against him Viktoria Pilsen. The triumph was achieved, but also overwhelmingly.
Third party of Solari in the bench and Madrid thrashed in Pilsen. There are already eleven goals with the Argentine. The drought that the team accused during the last weeks with Lopetegui at the controls has disappeared. Five goals in Champions that confirm the remarkable improvement of the team in this aspect.
It was practically incomprehensible that Real Madrid went four consecutive games without scoring a single goal. The template seemed hit by a curse and is that the punch disappeared suddenly so it became a streak of five straight games without winning. With players like Benzema, Bale or AsensioIt was hard to explain why it was not marked. Lopetegui was unable to find a solution.
With Solari everything changed facing the goal
In the end it has turned out to be the fault of the physical slump that accused the wardrobe, but above all of the state of mind in which he was. The template was down. Each negative result was a blow even greater than the previous one and neither Lopetegui nor anyone could be able to get Madrid out of that pit. Until the club cut to the ground and dismissed Lopetegui to put Solari, interim, in office. And everything changed.
The arrival of Solari, or the change of cards on the bench, has been a relief for the team. The excuse to give the much needed change. The Argentine coach has taken Madrid from the critical situation in which he was and is that he has erased in a stroke the mental block that was face to face. The one who has noticed the most has been, without a doubt, Karim Benzema.
Benzema was eight games unmarked until he did against Viktoria Pilsen. The French was ahead of what was to come with Solari and broke his particular drought. It was the first step before giving a remarkable improvement of the new coach's hand. He scored first in Melilla. Solari saw in that match an ideal opportunity to claim several of his players and Karim did. Before him Valladolid were Vinicius Y Ramos those who took the chestnuts from the fire, although we must not overlook the great match of the French striker, who forced the penalty that was 2-0. Before the Viktoria this Wednesday came his definitive confirmation.
Benzema is unleashed in Pilsen
Benzema double and assist in Pilsen to also sign several historical records in his career, as becoming the fifth top scorer in the Champions League (a single goal of the quarter). With Solari, he is averaging one goal per game and remembers his best version seen in the first weeks with Julen. As at the beginning of the season, Benzema has freed himself and shines again in front of goal.
One of the best symptoms of recovery via Solari is the return of the best Benzema. Madrid needed a goal urgently and finally is here. Now, ahead, there are two great challenges for the technician of the Castile. First, that Benzema contagious to his colleagues, especially Bale, who also scored in Pilsen (a pass from Benzema himself). Secondly, lengthen the good moment of Karim and that this is not a mirage, as it seemed to be with Julen.
