Shame, in the first half of the game against Shakhtar Donetsk, Real Madrid was kicked 0-3. In the face of a shortcoming opponent, Real Madrid not only failed to play a few wonderful cooperation, but was beaten by the opponent.
What happened to Real Madrid in the first half? Is this a decline in strength or a question of attitude. Let's take a look at some clips of Real Madrid in the first half.
In the 11th minute of the game, the miners intercepted Modric's ball in the midfield and organized a counterattack. At that time, the miners had 6 players participating in the attack. Only Militang and Varane, Modric and Valverde were left in the backfield of Real Madrid Mendy actively returned to defense and eventually formed a 5V5 situation in the backcourt.
In the 14th minute, the miner got a single chance, Courtois fell to the ground to save, avoiding this loss. So, why can miners easily get such a single-shot opportunity? Is Millitung to blame? Have to start from the midfield.
Real Madrid insisted on pressing high. Valverde and Casemiro came forward one after another, forcing the opponent to play the backcourt, but when the opponent was transferred, No. 8 Antonio was unmarked, and Casemiro's position had been advanced. At this time, Casemiro actively withdrew, which can be regarded as a check on Antonio.
But behind, Real Madrid made mistakes one after another. After the miners were transferred again, Casemiro continued to press high and let go of No. 8 Antonio. Upon seeing this, Militao rushed forward to mark Antonio. At this time, No. 11 Marlos seized the neutral position of Militang and got a single-handed opportunity, which was finally resolved by Courtois.
Throughout Real Madrid's defense this time, there are many loopholes. High position press, no intensity, opponents can easily transfer the ball. When Casemiro's position is prerequisite and he participates in a high position, who will come to play his role. From the formation point of view, the high probability is Millitang, but when Millitang participates in the high position, who will fill his middle position. There is no doubt that Real Madrid players did not want to be together.
In the attack of the miners, Marcelo's speed of chasing was moving. He was gradually pulled away by Marlos and was overtaken by Militan.
Real Madrid’s first goal was basically a problem with the back line. In order to make up for the defense, Marcelo finally gave Tete an excellent opportunity, and the miners did not miss it.
Look at Real Madrid's second goal. Marcelo and Casemiro on the left can't guard against Tete. Varane also made a mistake in panic and made an own mistake.
Look at the 34th minute, an attack by the miners, the 14th special kicks in and grabs the ball before Marcelo. Marcelo was aware of the opponent's running position in advance, but he just couldn't run.
Finally, look at Real Madrid's third goal, Millitang's walking back chase, watched Solomon score.
This is Real Madrid's defense, full of loopholes, and the players' competitive state is super poor. Players perform tactics in different ways, and there is no sense of hierarchy in the midfield. Of course, Real Madrid's offense is also no improvement, this is already a commonplace question.
