La Liga week 20
Things have been pretty rough for Real Madrid since Zidane decided to leave the club after he and his team won a third consecutive Champions League trophy…
Coach Solari, who replaced Lopetegui a few months ago, has had a rough path too but promised his team will keep fighting to the end in every competition. This means La Liga, the Cup and Champions League. It will be tough for the European champions to repeat again or to win anything at all this year but you never know.
Today Real Madrid played a serious match and took the best of Sevilla FC in a top of the League clash. With the victory the club from the capital comes back to third place behind leaders FC Barcelona and city rivals Atletico Madrid.
Real Madrid coach, Solari praises his players:
“Every player fought hard, we played some good football and pressured high, I would like to congratulate the players on their efforts today.
It’s always more than just the three points when you’re up against a direct rival, because one team gets the points and the other loses them. The celebration was worthy of Casemiro’s wonderful goal, and it was tense because I couldn’t see if it was going in or not. It was a fantastic effort, not only because of the significance of the game, but because we needed that breakthrough.
Football is about the players, it’s all down to them. Each game has its circumstances, every team we play has their style and there are different, inconvenient situations for the squad to face. We still have a lot of players out to injury or coming back, we need them here. It is time to show our competitive spirit and have the younger players prove themselves, the veterans show their class, consistency and the substance that they bring to the team to make us competitive.
We are fighting in three competitions till the last as always. For Real Madrid nothing is impossible. I always enjoy football and the competition, it is our passion and we love it despite the tough times. We are passionate about competing and obviously it is better to win, no one can deny that.”
