Yesterday’s match at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Manchester City vs. Real Madrid, ended with the impressive win of the English club. 2:1 score became a big fail for the Vikings as it was their home game.
According to Real Madrid’s midfielder, Casemiro, they were showing a dynamic game within 75 minutes, but only 15 minutes became crucial for the Spanish football players. An intensive attack from their opponents led to two goals and defeat. Although Isco scored the ball for Real at 59th minute, the goal didn’t help them to continue this success. Man City had some gaps in its defense, however, it didn’t prevent its players from making effective passes and shots – Jesus netted the decisive goal.
Real’s mistakes or Man City’s strong desire for victory?
It isn’t a secret that Guardiola’s team has been recently banned by UEFA. Man City appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport because they considered this decision to be unjust. As far as the club’s future is obscure, its members have done their best to prove that they are worthy of playing and winning. Man City’s win in Madrid has shown that the club isn’t going to give up.
At the same time, Real Madrid’s defeat is mostly provoked by their eased off defense and loss of the game control in the closing periods of the game. Casemiro explained that they had done a lot of mistakes and there weren’t any excuses for them in the game. It became the major reason for this failure, in addition to the fact that Man City players were determined to win.
As mentioned earlier, Real Madrid’s fans were begging Ronaldo to return to the club, as they believed that his comeback could prevent it from defeats.
