El team of Carlo Ancelotti returns to Santiago Bernabu after the defeat in the field of Getafe. The objective is to keep the distance so that Sevilla do not have the option of assaulting the leadership shortly. Vinicius returns to the team and Asensio remains on the right.
The emergency side when Carvajal is not there. Madrid’s injuries make Lucas’s ownership common. Guedes starts with threatening messages for the Galician. The first hard stop is taken by him, from Gay.
It comes from a week of contrasts: error in Getafe and goal by Alcoy. He was 1-0 at six minutes, but Cillessen responded with reflexes to his powerful jump. Yellow at 26 minutes for a play in which he does not measure the times against Gay. Speed display back at half an hour.
Hard duel with a forward who does not flee from the shock like Maxi.
Getafe only played a part and rested in the Cup. He was required as soon as he started with a ball at his back.
Valencia measure their moment through quick transitions. Yellow is played in his first inning. He wins the second by arriving late against Wass. Good arrival in the area to head high in the 32nd minute.
The regularity made a footballer. Golden ball at the head of Militao for the first of Madrid.
The best in Getafe and with rest in the Cup. Good with the ball, but he is also a master in defensive maneuvers.
First game of 2022 and after the Covid scare. Dazzling in its first overflow action.
Look for goal 300 with Madrid. Valencia weaves a good network so that it is not comfortable. Until minute 29 he did not appear to try the goal.
Again headline ahead of Rodrygo. His first appearance is for the other band. Active and with a good defensive attitude. Try Cillessen with his right hand.
He tries that his team recovers the good feelings with which he said goodbye to the year and did not have in Getafe and Alcoy. A start by Guedes makes him gesture at the imbalances that allowed it.
