LBale’s ownership surprised everyone. In the previous one, Ancelotti sent messages in that sense, but it seemed like an impossible path to start with.
It comes with 13 clean sheets, eight in the league. He saves the stick at minute 20. Good reaction to Alberto Moreno’s whiplash in minute 37. Solid fists.
That it is good is key to Ancelotti’s idea. He has a good time with the ball he hits Lo Celso in the face. A lot of defensive work on his side. In the first part he almost did not step on the opposite field. He improves with the passing of the minutes, and he does so in both parts of the field.
First time playing in the Villarreal field. He arrives in a great state of form. demanded. Handles risky situations well. If you lose a duel it’s news.
It remains in the axis of the rear. He cracks his waist in an attempt to help Marcelo stop Chukweze in the sixth minute. He has work to spare.
He had not played two games in a row since April: Cdiz and Getafe. The first of Villarreal looks for his back. He breaks Chukweze on the first challenge. The Nigerian is a whirlwind, but it’s not just Marcelo’s theme. Cold blood in the small area: he gets out of a problem with a dribble to Courtois! Great ball out on the play that ends with Asensio’s high kick.
He returns to his position after being absent against Granada due to gastroenteritis. She gives to put on work overalls because Villarreal is a team that has the ball and works with long possessions. Extraordinary pass to leave Bale alone in the 42nd minute. Extraordinary defensive reading in the 54th minute to stop a counterattack that looked very bad for Madrid. A high-level match is taking place. A midfielder lesson, he has Parejo at some error levels that he draws attention to.
Against Athletic and Granada he was seen somewhat lower than usual. He needs his team to seek more of his judgment. Outperformed when it comes to covering spaces. The growth of Madrid goes hand in hand with the fact that the German is becoming more and more the protagonist of the game. Test Rulli at minute 70.
Ownership that has been won for his second half against Granada, although it comes from the hand of a breather for Modric. He has to help block Villarreal’s double side. Too transparent. Great steal in the 58th to launch Vinicius against Rulli.
The bomb of eleven. He hasn’t played for Madrid for 167 days. In Villarreal’s debut with Madrid, he scored his first goal and has five goals in seven games. He doesn’t come into play. He is rarely seen and Madrid does little because he is seen. Until minute 20 he is not the protagonist with the ball. He has it before the break after a great diagonal clearance, but Rulli responds well. Without appearing much, the two best in Madrid are his. In the 56th minute he shoots, Rulli touches it and the ball hits the crossbar. He has the goal again and again runs into the Argentine goal. He monopolizes the clear goalscoring actions of Ancelotti’s team. He leaves in minute 74. Good game even though he hasn’t scored.
He enters for the last quarter of an hour for Bale.
At its best for a long time. His first notable action is defensive help. Dangerous action on Iborra when trying to do a dribble. His face said it all. He is not active in the opposite field. Whiplash in the 49 that goes high. He grows in the second half.
Ancelotti said before the game that a week without games has been good for him. He complains about Albiol’s action in the 14th minute in which the center-back put out his arm to contact him in the face. The most active in the lead. He is in all the hot moments of the game. Parejo plays the red with an elbow without the ball in play. He is by far the most knocked down player in the match. In the sixth he costs Albiol the yellow. He has legs to lend a hand back. The 0-1 goes away in minute 58 with a one-on-one against Rulli in which the Argentine wins. He is the best in Madrid.
Risk play with Bale’s ownership. The first quarter of an hour is spent blank. His team does not enter the match rhythm. He begins to move pieces in the gang to give his team another air. He improves Madrid in the second half. The white team is increasingly dominating.
