Real Madrid snatched a victory in Seville (0-1), Saturday, and his French coach can breathe.
It’s a reality, Zinédine Zidane is in the hot seat on the side of real Madrid. The Merengues remained on their third defeat in Liga against Alavés (1-2), at home, a week ago, before the rout in Ukraine against Shakhtar (2-0), Tuesday, which places them in a very uncertain situation before the last day of the phase of groups of Champions League and the reception of Mönchengladbach, the leader of the pool.
Benzema and Mendy on the action of goal
“Zizou” can breathe, since Real won, in Seville (0-1), Saturday, the first of its 3 shocks in a row (a derby in the capital is looming against Atlético, next weekend) . The Spanish champions were dominated by the Andalusian formation, but were able to be dangerous on a few occasions with Karim Benzema at the forefront.
The native of Lyon was finally at the origin of the Madrid goal by throwing nicely Ferland Mendy. The center of the French international left-back was deflected by Vinicius at the near post and Bono, the opposing goalkeeper, sent the ball into his own goal (55th). The Sevillians have accentuated their domination but without being able to equalize. From an acrobatic recovery, Lucas Ocampos notably fell on Thibaut Courtois (85th).
A decisive derby for Zidane?
Real did a good job in the standings by moving up to 3rd position, 4 points ahead of their opponent of the day. The Merengues are now 3 points behind Atlético, which will therefore be their next opponent in the league. Will Zinédine Zidane’s place still be played against the Colchoneros? Response in the next few days!
