How things have changed at Real Madrid in recent days. The white team has once again tasted the taste of victory after a bad start to the League and the feelings once again fuel the illusion in the Madrid parish. Thus, a week after debuting in the group stage of the Champions League, Real Madrid reaches the second European match, against Breidablik (9:00 p.m., DAZN) with another face. And is not for less.
The white team won in their first continental match against Kharkiv (0-1), in a match that they almost completely dominated (70% possession), and gained momentum to get their first victory in the League (Eibar, 2-1 ). It is true that this last result is not enough to compensate for all the errors in the league start (four defeats and one draw), but it presents itself as a lifeline to hold on to to start swimming to shore.
While Madrid is recovering in the League, where it is very far from the European zone (11 points) and ambitions to climb positions to save its image, the Champions League appears as that magical competition in which he hopes to continue making history. For now, there are few reproaches for White in Europe, where they remain undefeated. They overcame the previous round by eliminating Manchester City (2-1) and have started the group stage with victory in Ukraine.
Without looking back, the Madrid team wants to continue showing their improvement with a new victory that brings them closer to the quarterfinals. To do this, he must knock down Breidablik, the most affordable rival in his group. Although the latter does not relax the Madrid women, who saw how the Icelandic team faced PSG (0-2) last week. “It is a very organized team, which defends very well in its own field and is very dangerous from set pieces and in transitions. We will try to control that and not grant options to the rival,” detailed David Aznar, Real Madrid coach, who does not recover none of the injured (Cardona, Asllani, Esther, Maite Oroz, Kaci, Teresa Abelleira or Malena) for the appointment.
The champion of the women’s league in Iceland up to 18 times will be the cotton test that confirms if this Madrid has begun to iron out its internal crisis (bad results, injuries …). And in Real Madrid great motivation is throbbing with respect to the European appointment. “I see all of us looking forward to it. We have worked very well these days and we are looking forward to the game,” said Kenti Robles in the previous game.
David Aznar, whose future had been put in doubt due to the team’s poor results, was also excited. “We hope we can celebrate another victory. From the first game in the Champions League we are very excited. It is a special atmosphere”, added the Talavera coach, who claimed to be aware of the demands of his position. A pressure that will be less if Real Madrid adds a new victory in the Champions League. The white box knows that against the Icelanders they have a new litmus test to show that the bad streak at the start of the season has only been that, a bad streak …
