Real Madrid don’t want to fight for La Liga title for the second consecutive year and they threw away their possibilities losing (1-2) against Girona at home. Levante and Real Sociedad were the other teams able to beat Los Blancos at Santiago Bernabéu, points that must not fly away if you want to win the title. Horrible performance of the team again.
Los Blancos missed Luka Modric, who couldn’t play for suspension. The team was very slow without clarity because Dani Ceballos cannot replace the Croatian magician. Marco Asensio replaced Vinicius Jr in the wing and Real Madrid also lost some magic without the Brazilian. However, no one could expect the outcome of the clash in the morning.
Especially when Casemiro scored the first goal in the first half with a perfect header. Real Madrid didn’t play well but the game was under control. Or it seemed that way. In the second half Los Blancos started more focused on the game, but they disappeared quite quickly. Girona started to have chances until Sergio Ramos committed penalty with a handball. Stuani didn’t miss the chance and drew the game.
Far from being satisfied for the result, Girona continued attacking and they found the second goal thanks to Portu in another mistake by Odriozola. There were 10 minutes left, but Los Blancos didn’t react. Sergio Ramos was even sent off in the last minutes. Courtois had the last chance to draw the game but his header went out.
Girona, who haven’t won a game since November, was able to gain the three points at Bernabéu one week after the lost at home against the bottom of the table, Huesca. On the other hand, Real Madrid, who were doing the things really well at Camp Nou, Wanda and Amsterdam Arena, threw away La Liga. No one can understand this team.
