Neither leadership nor streak of consecutive days without losing in The league. The Real Madrid suffered a severe setback in his visit to I raised in the Valencia city. Whites fell 1-0 unexpectedly and say goodbye to a run of 15 consecutive games without knowing the defeat in the league championship. In addition, he says goodbye to his position as leader after adding his second prick followed after drawing against the Celtic.
Madrid has taken a downturn in recent weeks and has done so at the most inopportune moment. He has only won one of his last four games and has said goodbye to the Copa del Rey. This defeat against Levante comes just before a crucial week in which whites will measure at Manchester City and at Barcelona in the Santiago Bernabeu.
But, why this sudden fall of Madrid? Why was he lost to Levante? Real Madrid dominated the game, but ended up losing three important points against a team that struggles to move away from the releasing positions after weeks hesitating with falling to the lowest area of the table.
A lot of quality and little goal
Madrid had them of all colors and still could not score yesterday. The team went from more to less, but only with the chances he had in the first half should it have been enough to win the Levante. It is clear that with Karim Benzema Y Eden Hazard -Who could have been injured again-, Madrid thinks better with clarity and makes the fan enjoy it. But the aim is not on your side.
Benzema and Hazard failed clear occasions. Madrid wasted several hand in hand and ran into a wall called Aitor Fernández, one of the most outstanding goalkeepers of the season. Madrid stayed at zero and continues to accuse its problems in the face of goal. Goleadores are missed as Bale or Jovic, which are not at your level.
Second worst streak fit
Madrid came from setting its best defensive numbers in recent decades. The goal was shielded and was the longest team in La Liga alone. But the team shows weakness again and is that with yesterday there are already four games in a row which has been conceded by the white team. This means that it is the second worst streak against Madrid, after receiving five consecutive games at the beginning of the season.
Little freshness without Valverde
The big name that left Zidane out of eleven thinking about the games against City and Barcelona was Fede Valverde. The Uruguayan was substitute and the French coach opted for a 4-4-2 with Casemiro, Modric, Kroos and Isco In the center of the field. Without Fede, Madrid has a much harder time surprising and, above all, breaking team lines. Modric, who went from more to less, and Kroos, who played one of his most bland games of the season, shine less offensively when Valverde is not there and met again against Levante.
The imbalance that is missing
Hazard’s return was the best news for Madrid. The offensive differential factor of the team returned. But as fast as it arrived, it quickly left. His injury is the worst thing that could happen to the white team, even over the defeat. The Belgian might have to stop again if the worst fears are confirmed and, therefore, the matches against City and Barça would be lost. Without him, Vinicius will have to take a step forward again.
