Match Report Real Madrid 3 – Real Sociedad 1: Modric Directs a Great Performance


Despite a bad start of the game, Los Blancos were able to complete a great comeback and beat Real Sociedad (3-1) at Santiago Bernabéu in another great performance of the team. Real Madrid are getting better and better during the season, with Luka Modric as a director this team. Zidane’s men are not yet leaders of the table, because FC Barcelona got a lucky victory at Leganés only some hours earlier but the team is looking sharper than ever and ready for all the challenges during the season.

Only some weeks ago, Real Madrid were a completely nervous team, unable to wrap up the games at Bernabéu and suffering after having three goals of advantage. Right now, they are able to overcome a bad start, with another big mistake from the captain, and complete a great performance against a dangerous team at home. Now they need to keep going with this positive streak.

Real Sociedad was an uncomfortable guest at Bernabéu. Everybody knew that, with Odegaard as the main threat, a young player who should be one of the Real Madrid stars in the next few years. Same as Rodrygo, who started again the game leaving on the bench Gareth Bale, one of the main protagonists of the game after his controversial week.

Even if the game was dangerous, it couldn’t start worst. Sergio Ramos tried to pass Courtois, but Willian José intercepted the ball and scored easily in the 3rd minute of the game. Real Sociedad could widen the gap, but again Courtois was great saving the team. Another good news for Zidane. Luckily the team reacted and pushed Real Sociedad, getting the equaliser before the half time. It was again Karim Benzema with a perfect touch with his chest.

After the half time, Los Blancos kept attacking and the second goal was the prize. This time was Fede Valverde with a lucky shot from outside the box. Now the Uruguayan midfielder, one of the best players of the team, can even score. The good news were completed with the great performance of Luka Modric, an excellent player whose physical conditions were not at the best during the past weeks. The Croatian midfielder was the best player of the game and scored the last goal in the 74th minute.

By then, also Gareth Bale was on the pitch. The Welshman was booed by Santiago Bernabéu supporters even when he was closed to score a great goal at the end of the game. The club needs the Welshman to achieve the goals, so all the past stuff should be forgotten as soon as possible. Despite the booes, it was a great evening for Real Madrid, who now look better than even during the season.
