The night in San Mamés could not be good for Madrid if Ceballos goes to start, in the first time where he threw two heels in the first 5 minutes and then disappeared. Lopetegui understood at halftime that he had muddied it and tried to remedy it sent to the field to Casemiro by Ceballos but Athletic Bilbao had already been ahead on the scoreboard with Muniain’s goal at minute 32.
In the second part with Casemiro Madrid improved, he felt more balanced, it was time for the recital of Unai Simón the fourth archer of the athletic that if nobody knew him now nobody will forget him. At minute 61 Lopetegui decides to take out the winner of The Best prize, Luka Modric, to give Isco entry, the criticism began to rain the coach when Isco appeared from 9 and at minute 64 he finished off a precise center from Bale to tie the game.
Is it safe from the Lopetegui criticism? No, the Spanish coach was looking for a goal to complete the comeback and had the new Mariano on the bench waiting his turn to show everything learned in France, but the white coach decided on Lucas Vásquez, and with his controversial decision we thought that It could not get worse, but we made a mistake again, Lopetegui decides to take out Bale, his top star and the player different from Madrid. The front was with Asensio, Benzema and Lucas Vásquez, who could not with the great night of Unai Simón that took two balls to mouth and secured the tie in San Mamés.
The changes show a lot of courage on the part of Lopetegui or high stupid, you can not win a game if you remove Modric and Bale the last minutes and do not send a center forward to the field.
