Asensio-Rodrygo, the duel to enter the trident

Marco Asensio took advantage in Granada of the door that opened Carlo Ancelotti in the eleven of Madrid. He did it with a goal that reminded his gallops that seem so distant in time, those that destroyed the Bayern and they threw him into the clouds.

He was in the eleven before Lightning and repeated before him Granada, two games in which his version was several points above the bland one he had shown in all his appearances this season, except for the game against Mallorca with his three goals.

What a good Asensio can give this Real Madrid offers few doubts. Even being far from the game and goal indicators before the injury, Marco has left streaks of his left-handed power.

There is a lot of competition, the important thing is that he complies when he plays. He has played well, he has scored and has shown his quality,” he said in Los Crmenes. More or less, the same thing he explained after the triplet to Mallorca.

With Bale always in the medical part and Hazard unable to signal that he can be counted on, the square on the right wing has become a heads up between Rodrygo and Asensio.

The presence of Lucas Vzquez in that part of the attack before him Shakhtar At the Bernabu, he only has a route if the first two are injured or far from the minimum required by Ancelotti.

Although the sensations are that Rodrygo has been more important than Asensio In this first stretch of the season, reality says otherwise: five starts for each one; 15-13 in games played for the Brazilian; 4-2 in goals for Marco; tied assistance (one) and almost in minutes (551 for the Spaniard and 526 for the Brazilian).
