Real Madrid worthy Champions of Spain
Real Madrid worthy champions crowned champions of Spain:
Real Madrid worthy champions of Spain has been crowned champions of Spain for the 34th time in their history after defeating Villarreal 2 goals to one with a game in hand.
This is their first league title in 7 years since 2017 and they are worthy winners despite claims of VAR assistance.
The two longest-serving players at the club “Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema” proved Zidane’s most reliable performers during the title run-in, producing decisive moments as Real Madrid went from second in the standings to top of the table.
Benzema opened the scoring in the victory over Villarreal; his 20th league goal of the season and the 13th time he scored Madrid’s first goal in a league game this season.
It was the two that combined for the second; almost ludicrous goal. Ramos pinched the ball and won a VAR-assisted penalty which he stood to take himself and instead of sliding it past Sergio Asenjo, he played the ball forward for Benzema to smash home.
Hence, the referee deemed encroachment had taken place and ordered a retake which Benzema successfully slotted home. This helped them seal the match proving a cushion Madrid were glad to have pending the final whistle, because of Vicente Iborra’s fine header to beat Thibaut Courtois late on.
Nevertheless, Madrid ruthlessly exploited the chaos at Camp Nou with an impressive 10 Liga wins in a row following the suspension of play caused by dreaded corona virus pandemic.
Real Madrid worthy champions, with a worthy manager “Zidane” who is a most worthy recipient of the plaudits that should now come his way, having made wonderful use of his squad with 21 different players scoring for Madrid this season. The World Cup winner displayed his tactical versatility by alternating between 4-4-2, 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1 formations since the restart of the season which proved successful.
Zinedine Zidane, has long been accused of being a ‘lucky’ coach, with this season’s title run-in being plagued by claims of Real Madrid receiving preferential treatment from match officials, remarkably as Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu sniping: “VAR always favours the same team.”
Notwithstanding, Real Madrid fought pertinently for every point, which was proclaimed by their manager last week, “You cannot achieve anything without suffering.”
Madrid’s latest Liga win is the perfect case in point. After the pain of last season, Zidane and his players have come roaring back and successfully silenced their critics.
Kudos to Real Madrid, Kudos to Zinedine Zidane and to all Madrid fans, respect to their all time goal scorer Christiano Ronaldo who left years back to Juventus who was a spine in the team during his time.
