Thanks to Rodrygo, Real Madrid won the Atalayar Copa by leaving Atletico victorious
A Vinicius doll hanging from the bridge leading to Real Madrid’s Ciudad Deportiva and a sign saying that Madrid hates Real Madrid. It was with these signs of the Sicilian mafia that the King’s Cup derby between the two teams of the Spanish capital began..
The red-white club continues to lead dark plot characters protected by the club, capable of interrupting training sessions, insulting their own players or evoking the baser instincts that should already be suppressed in Spain.
Ticket distribution took a back seat when the match started. Nobody cared if there were 400 or 4,000 red and white fans at the Bernabeu. The grass didn’t help and neither did the tarps. Let’s add the fact that the pace of “Real Madrid” was reminiscent of the Super Cup final, and white defeat seemed imminent.
Morata scored the first goal for Real Madrid after running down the left flank. The misunderstanding between Mendy and Militao allowed Atletico to control the match against a physical Real Madrid who were behind in every move.
Morata is at odds with his profession. He always complains about everything and is always angry because he doesn’t see the football world as it is. During the holiday, he wanted to cover the first two letters of his name on his jersey to remember the insults he received from his former home. It is not the right way to live so much in the eyes of your opponent and forget your own eyes.
The break was the best time for Ancelotti. The locker room once again served to create the necessary motivation and commitment to the Italian coach. “Real Madrid started to play in the second half,” Simeone said after the game.
Mendy conceded to Ceballos just before the break, then Rodrigo and Asensio came to the rescue.. Atletico didn’t want to go all out on their foe, forcing them to retreat more and more into their own area, bringing Morata off and opening up space to keep players like Witsel.
Lacking attacking talent, Atlético could only hope for a goal that came after Rodrigo’s good play on the edge of the box and a shot from the edge of the box that hit the post.. It happened in the 79th minute and the rest is history between these two clubs, who have already met in two Champions League finals with a similar scenario: Atlético go forward, dominate and start to get smaller until they disappear.
The schedule for Real Madrid is so tight that the team did not want to play extra time. They went 2-1 by the 95th minute to run for another half hour. This is not the case and it is extra time that decides the match. In the 99th minute, Savic was sent off, and in the 104th minute, Benzema made the score 2:1.
Atletico asked for Ceballos to be sent off for bringing down his opponent in the middle of the pitch, but the referee only signaled a foul.. It was a tough game, hard fought and a lot of theatrics from both teams.
Mario Martin and Odriozola entered the field in the last minutes The third goal was scored by ViniciusIt knocked Atletico out of the Copa and left them in the middle of a four-month desert with nothing to play for.
The insults outside the sport thankfully did not reach the pitch. Real Madrid have reached the semi-finals of the cup, with no dates to play in the calendar whatever awaits them. Good football. Even if the capital derby leaves the bitter taste of the drag that some would like to take his team.
