Vinicius To the rescue! Real Madrid won an important victory this Sunday against Sevilla, in an evening where the visitors started better and with more force at the Santiago Bernabéu. Those of Julen Lopetegui pressed very high and constantly to take advantage of the uncertainty of a Madrid that we have not “found” in its domain. Carlo Ancelotti, who repeated his approach of always, did not expect the start so electric of those of Nervión and his team suffered more than count in a party which is a “classic” of Spanish football … And almost it happens bill him in a dramatic way.
Sevilla’s idea was clear: to challenge them to control the ball in Madrid, while those of ‘Carletto’ tried to block the exit of the rivals, without much success. The pressure from the visitors ended with a corner at eleven minutes. After launch, Rafa Mir left his mark, before the distraction of Éder Militãor, remained alone and almost without jumping ended in spectacular fashion next to the stick, making the shot from Thibaut Courtois ‘useless’ for the 0-1.
The Belgian, however, had the most key intervention and that “okay” almost in case only a point for Madrid. The guardameta allowed him to do big in front of Rafa Mir, so that after David Praises pulled out the low ball sticks. Sevilla’s attack began after an “unforgivable” mistake by Dani Carvajal. The Sevilla liked and left the feeling that the second could fall, because the chances came very easily. Ocampos was the following one in warning with a frontal shot, after the passage of Casemiro. He hit him planted on the crossbar and walked away little by little.
But as the one who forgives too much, the salary, Real Madrid ended empatando in his clearer approach to the first part, which initiated with a long ball of Militao, from his field, which Bono tried to block, but eluded him, hit with the stick and appeared Karim Benzema, in ‘killer ‘pure, to push the ball to the network and sign the tie at Santiago Bernabéu.
Shortly afterwards came the controversy of the meeting: David Praises had a slight contact with Lucas Ocampo, but the Argentine “threw” onto the playing field shortly after. The referee was very close to him and signaled that there was none at all. Nor did the VAR call for Sánchez Martínez to see him in the monitor. With the most equalized party, two opportunities arrived on the sidelines of the rest: one from Marco Asensio, who commanded a finish in front and another from Ocampos, for Sevilla, with a header that held back Courtois.
Vinicius Jr gets resolved on time
In second half of the party, Seville got to dominate to yield the control to him to those of Carlo Ancelotti. Jordán tried, with a long finish, but the left was very diverted. Asensio came back to have a very clear opportunity before party time after looking for his left and putting the ball in the square. The ball went away little by little and the Madrid player began to warn, but without disturbing Bono too much in his zone.
Real Madrid sought the draw with an almost deadly contragolpe. He plays he lost a ball, recovered it Vinícius Jr in the center of the field, went in speed and finished ordering it. Sevilla was closed and cost him the tie, but those in ‘Carletto’ wanted more. In the 83 ‘, David Praises finished after a lateral fault, of volley, but came out little by little above the crossbar. In the 87 ‘, came the difference of Vinicius Jr with a period golazo. The Brazilian took out a descomunal zapatazo by the square to, after a very discreet game, offer him victory to his team.
