The Zidane doubts on the left

first_imgThe Real Madrid leaves his infernal week, the first leg against the City and the Classic, without making clear who is the owner of the left white side. Mendy he had done with the headline vitola, cornering Marcelo, and Zidane protected him in the Ciutat de Valencia to avoid a possible yellow that would have cost him the penalty (for being the fifth) against Barcelona. Everything seemed to indicate that he would repeat the title he held in the Champions League against the other Mendy, but Zidane offered eleven to the world one hour and ten minutes before the Classic … and the one that was was Marcelo. An amazing decision especially seen the discreet performance of the Brazilian in the defeat against Levante and that he was generating a certain connection with Hazard, but Hazard is gone. Also that Mendy, who praises his defensive consistency, deep down has had to ‘cut’ when pulling up. This was confessed by the French international last week on RMTV. “In Lyon he defended less and attacked more”. Just the opposite of the image that is being generated now in Madrid.The Classic, despite the initial surprise of its alignment, served Marcelo to generate one of those images that change states of opinion. As if to the veteran Madrid side I would have grown a third lung, he won a race to Messi with 1-0 and in the 72nd minute he finished lifting the Bernabéu. For the action itself and for the celebration of the side itself, which raised its fist as if it had scored a goal. Shortly after, the datum on television showed it in figures. Messi: 29.5 kilometers per hour of top speed. Marcelo: 30.9 km / h. Vinicius to protect the backA moral victory of Marcelo sustained in a tactical plan of Zidane who protected him, paradoxically, with Vinicius. The instruction came from the bench, and Vini complied He stole up and back. Five recoveries, even more than Marcelo himself (three). He was also attentive to the toppings. A work to which Zidane gave merit. “It was very good also in defense, that’s what I want, we have to defend all.”The result of everything is that the position of three is the most discussed of the whole team. Mendy has played more minutes (1,608 ‘) but Zidane refuses to clearly proclaim a headline, especially with Marcelo’s weight (1,437 ‘) in the dressing room and his ancestry among the fans. Be that as it may, Mendy or Marcelo, the left side has no owner.last_img read more
