So... it’s six points!
Not an incredible performance, but, after the golazo from Marco reminding us his form self, Real Madrid won yesterday game. Los Blancos sits at the top of the table with good advantage of 6 points clear from Sevilla. Granada’s coach praised Valverde, saying he made a big difference in the game.
Benzama is ready.
Carlo said in the press conference that he thinks Benzema is ready for the next game. The rumour is the player wants to play vs Villarreal in order to be sharp for PSG.
Was this game the end of false 9 experiment?
Don Carlo some how explained why he opted for the “Isco false 9 experiment” in yesterday’s game: Jovic didn’t start because he had Covid-19 and he wasn’t feeling 100%.
️ @MrAncelotti: "Jovic isn't 100% that's why I used Isco as a 9 - because he handles the ball well between the lines."— Infinite Madrid (@InfiniteMadrid) February 6, 2022
