Game number four, number four victory. Interim coach Real Santiago Solari has passed his first rigorous test but has suffered three new injuries in Vigo: Casemiro, Sergio Reguilón and Nacho Fernández.
VIGO. Finally, Royal has used competition errors. After losing to Betis, Real have scored three points at Vigo. And this is because new injuries are bought expensive.
Isco is again on the bench, Casemiro and Reguilón are injured
For the starting eleven, he has to adapt Santiago Solari twice to the half-time whistle. Although Luka Modric made a break after a break in the Champions League and Lucas Vázquez was awarded, it was not Isco anymore for higher training use, but at Casemiro and Sergio Reguilón the two best players off the field were injured. The Brazilian striker had to leave after 17 minutes at a difficult start Maxi Gomez, back-off just before the break. "Celtinas" did not take prisoners, as did Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and vlvaro Odriozola after several hard stabs from the home team.
Benzema meets Modric's pass
If not, the fourth game below Solari is a great fight, and the odds ratio 8: 8 at rest shows: There are many things to get at Balaídos! Initially, Benzema reached two conclusions, first after Odriozola's initial work, then after Bale was thrown, before Thibaut had to save Courtoi's post – Okay already brought a fourth aluminum goal that supports Solaris. Luck in the back, and luck ahead: Benzema gave 1-0 in the 23rd minute, when he let go of his defender, was served by Modric, and scored his tenth goal of the season after a big ball trap.
But even under a 42-year-old temporary coach, sometimes there is bad luck: Kroos meets in the 35th minute, an empty goal after Benzema releases him. After 8:10 violations and 1: 3 yellow cards from Real's point of view, a 1-0 lead that leads to the cabin.
First Celta, then Benzema: aluminum pitch on both sides
Fast and rotten is also the second 45 minutes. 50 minutes: Benzema failed after dribbling the ball to Drei on the crossbar. Minute 55: Final Benzema finds an inside post and Cabral's chest into the goal – an own goal. 60th minute: Hugo Mallo keeps the hosts in the match with a perfect direct dismissal – Sergio Ramos is not fast enough in the first goal.
Nacho was also injured, then Ramos's next penalty goal
And even more unlucky for Solari, because his third substitute came from injury: Nacho could no longer play since the 69th minute, was replaced by Asensio, so Lucas Vázquez Nacho was replaced as left back.
Celta continued, referee Undiano Mallenco let them pass, rarely intervening. After Benzema almost scored Odriozola's cross, Courtois had to open a party against Aspas' dangerous decision. The game threatens to tip. But what happened was the opposite. Because the Galicians used their rough playing style in their own penalty area, Odriozola fell. And Sergio Ramos was once again allowed to go from eleven yards to action, and meet – again by Panenka.
In the closing stages, they had two shots: Dani Ceballos hit the ball from 20 yards (90. + 1) before Brais handed Mendez Courtois (90 + 4).
First international break, then Éibar
Three points, and three new injuries. It remains to be seen how difficult the failure of Casemiro, Reguilón and Nacho is. After all: Dani Carvajal, Raphael Varane and Marcelo trained again with the team, and Mariano Díaz and Jesús Vallejo on the lawn. Because the international break is quite right, then Solari – if he is appointed as head coach on Monday – can immediately count on the majority of his team. Next match: November 24, at 13 at Éibar.
