Diego Costaphoto by: AP Some couldn’t belive it, others suspected what was seen on Saturday. The reality is, that after what happened against Eche, Real Madrid fans never thought that the match against Atletico Madrid would be an absolute disgrace in all aspects of the game. In Bernabeu Stadium, there were two teams in completely opposite poles. A team with order, with clear objectives, with delivery approach, and with a clear, precise, and concise objective won the derby. This team was Atlético de Madrid this past Saturday. On the other side of the field, a team in chaos, anarchy in technical, and tactical aspects. A team without air of professionalism on the whole, that was Real Madrid. The manager of the “Aleti” Simeone, knew how to make the task with no need to score several goals to humiliate its rival. A compact machine, where it was well played as a team, occupying the spaces and knowing to play with and without the ball. “Aleti” was able to cancel his rival and prevent them from doing what they usually do when mediocrity tactic abounds, which is to play on individuality. The brought to the wall of firing squad for the “merengue” are undoubtedly Khedira, Benzema, Coentrao, and De Arbeloa. From these four players,  three are criticized for their terrible imprecision at the time of passing the ball and lack of skills for counter attack. Yes, the delivery on the physical was on the part of these players good, but in a team like Real Madrid, it cannot relay only with the physical aspect. There is a need to have better skills with the ball, so they can make an effective attack. These players are Khedira, Coentrao and De Arbeloa. The fourth, he is criticized for the opposite. This player is very talented, but does not put delivery. This player doesn’t put his heart and does not give all physically. Pepe during the game criticized him for not giving all physically. During the second half, the star player of Real, Crisitano Ronaldo, was forced to retreat in the field to help Isco. That way Benzema did not have to go back and help in a counter attack. Unfortunately, Cristiano was swimming against the tide and he was alone. Benzema played sparingly and not handed over all of if. A fifth arrives to the execution , Ancelotti is convicted for not knowing how to act before the outline of his rival and to put players such as Gareth Bale in positions where they have never played since they arrived to professionalism. The attitude in these poles was different. “Aleti” juiced to death every ball, as if they were playing in the Champions League final. Real played slow, without hunger for glory and only betting on a genius of Cristiano Ronaldo, as has happened in previous nights. Follow isportsweb on twitter We might finally come to the end of the Duopoly of La Liga where only Real and Barca play for the national title. Simeone and his boys have been working hard for the past seasons and finally they have assembled a team to fight for La Liga. A lot of work awaits for Ancelotti this week. His team heads to Copenhagen for Champions League and is necessary to get back on business. Delivery, lack of football, and commitment to the club are factors that must be resolved as soon as possible, but while walking through Europe and the Spanish league it might take time to see this issues resolve.
