It’s just not the DNA of Madrid, he has taken away all the merengue team’s verticality, it has become a bad copy of the Spanish team that was eliminated from the World Cup, it is not bad luck, it is going against the Madrilenian nature.
5 games without a win, 3 league losses in a row and more than 8 hours without being able to score, a record that any coach on a team like Real Madrid would cost his head. Some might say that it is bad luck, that the ball does not enter, that anyone has a bad day, that without Cristiano Ronaldo any technician would have been the same, but no, Lopetegui has made bad decisions and continues to do so. His preference for Ceballos in the midfield is a sign of this, Ceballos is a promise, you can not compare him with Kross, Modric or even Casemiro himself, much less with Isco.
Levante finished digging Lopetegui’s tomb, he knew this was an important match before the classic but did not give Kroos a single minute, made initial changes with Mariano and Lucas Vazquez as starters, the return of Isco and Bale from the Bank. However, a bad first part of Varane would cost Madrid to lose 2-0 at halftime. The changes by Lopetegui to find the historic comeback were the entry of Benzema, Bale, and Ceballos, by Odriozola, Asensio, and Isco but the discount would get by Marcelo’s boot to place the final 2-1 on the scoreboard and it may be the last game with Lopetegui as the white technician.
The Bernabeu has spoken and once the team has been booed, Florentino is always called to put his hand. Would it be premature to dismiss Lopetegui before the classic? Yes!, not because he can not do it, but the substitute would have a very difficult entrance test, without time to capture his new style. Even so, Lopetegui will not finish the season with Real Madrid.
