Benzema’s Madrid

Real Madrid came out to face Alavés with Marcelo injured and Ramos on the rostrum but with a Benzema more grown than ever, who with the captain's band on his arm was the leader that the improvised 11 of Zidane needed to add another 3 points, keep the goal at 0 and tell Barcelona that they can speak whatever they want, that they will still win nothing this season.

Real Madrid does not usually process Sergio Ramos' absences well. Between the loss of 4 and that of Carvajal and Marcelo, Zidane opted for Lucas Vázquez on the right-back and Militao in that sector, offering the weak side to Alavés. López Muñiz bet on fast ends and generated many problems for the leader who saved the post, Varane and Courtois, despite the fact that the locals quickly opened the scoring.

It was in an indisputable penalty from Ximo Navarro when he caught Mendy's boot in the drag. The winger was touched by the error and sank soon after, in a struggle with Rodrygo that left him injured. He left in the 23rd minute, and Alavés improved with his departure and closed the door of the band to Mendy for the rest of the first half.

Ximo Navarro was not the only one who was hurt from the match, Gil Manzano also left with ailments. He held on as long as he could until the break, but could not continue in the second act. The fourth referee, Héctor Rodríguez Carpallo, was released as a First referee. And since nothing has been said about the VAR and the referees, the second fell with drama.

The referee appreciated Benzema's offside when he received a pass from Rodrygo that ended in Asensio's goal on an empty goal. But, surprise, the VAR discovered that Benzema was in a doubtful position. He threw the lines and left doubts. Legal goal. 2-0 in favor of the whites.

Zidane took the opportunity to give rest to the untouchables, Modric and Benzema. Important matter for what awaits Monday in Granada. In the next match he recovers Ramos and Carvajal. Winning the 3 points and keeping the goal at 0 has its own merit. The value of Madrid B can give another league.
