FOOTBALL Madrid delayed the return from vacation

The attention of the day was in principle oriented towards Mallorca, where a very impoverished Barça was playing being or not being, but the hare jumped in Getafe. A Madrid still on vacation, as Ancelotti complained, unexpectedly lost giving life to its pursuers. A mistake by Militao was punished by Enes Ünal with success and that was enough. He protected himself behind, delayed Madrid’s attacks with fouls and when necessary Soria stopped two of the dangerous shots. The other went to the crossbar. Three goal shots, little income if they give you the field and the ball. But Vinicius was missing, and Asensio, Rodrygo and Hazard made him the best of Madrid.

Then Atleti revived against Rayo, who came out as stunned. I suppose there was a lot of COVID effect, because he has trained with very few, and also a lot of Cholo effect. Those four defeats before the tenth anniversary demanded a game like this at last, with the old values ​​of cholismo, a game of solidarity, fighting every meter with collective ambition. Two goals from Correa, who is in his best season. The fall has been stopped, but the team is still far from the top. The only one who today can think of catching up with Madrid is Sevilla, who are 8 points behind with two games less., which gives interest to your visit to Cádiz tonight.

But, he said, the attention was on Barça, who went to Mallorca in the bones and returned happy. During the first half he was huge, pushing Mallorca and finding in Luuk de Jong an effective striker who took two balls to the post and scored a goal winning from above, well with Reina giving himself away. The second part was long for Barça. He passed Cain’s, grabbed onto the other football and narrowly reached shore, thanks to a final stop by Ter Stegen that reminded us again how good a goalkeeper he is. The game that Xavi would not have wanted to play gave him three points and a medal, because winning under those conditions has spectacular merit.
