Two of the best news for Real Madrid fans in these first months of the season are the performances of Isco and Asensio. The two Spaniards get along very well outside the pitch and they understand each other inside, shining every time they have the chance of playing. The latest example was the game against UD Las Palmas, where both found the net.
With Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema struggling to find the goal, and Gareth Bale injured, Francisco Alarcón ‘Isco’ is taking the responsibility of guiding the team. The playmaker is, without any doubt, the best footballer of the team in this start of the season, keeping his level achieved last season.
As a result of his performances, Isco is now the topscorer of the club in La Liga with 4 goals and he’s given also three assists to help the team win against Real Sociedad, Getafe or Eibar. Apart from the numbers, the feelings also made quite clear that he’s essential in the team, no matter if the BBC is now available.
Another team mate is also pushing back to earn a spot in the line-up. Marco Asensio is struggling to start the games, but he’s also showing his quality when he has the chance. He started the season very strong, but we could see him worse in the last games. However, at Wembley he highlighted when he came in in the second half and against UD Las Palmas he also took advantage of the minutes with a superb goal. With 4 goals in La Liga, he is also the topscorer in this competition and he gave two assist, becoming one of the most important players of the club.
Apart from associating inside the pitch, both are also friends outside the stadiums. Zinedine Zidane should take advantage of their great level and trust them more. Isco and Asensio are the greatest news in this start of the season and hopefully they’re able to keep the level throughout the year.
