MADRID, May 9. (EUROPE PRESS) –
Real Madrid was defeated (1-0) this Sunday at the Wanda Metropolitano against Atlético de Madrid, adding its third loss as a visitor in LaLiga Santander, and the first in a stadium of the current twelve best classified, which that demonstrates his reliability away from the Santiago Bernabéu, a compelling argument to reach his 35th League title.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men have completed, to date, a very serious and effective campaign with hardly any errors, with great results in very complicated fields a priori, which this season more than problems or obstacles for the Whites have become reasons to be champions .
Real Madrid has only lost as a visitor, before the start of matchday 36 and only three games left in the competition to visit the Nuevo Mirandilla de Cádiz. The first came on matchday 8, against Espanyol at the RCDE Stadium, when the ‘parrots’ won 2-1. The whites only added one defeat in the 12 games prior to this campaign.
The second defeat was 11 days later, in Real Madrid’s first match in 2022. The meringues faced Getafe at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez and fell 1-0 to a ‘blue’ team that did not beat the madridistas at home for more than 10 years.
However, in the domestic competition they have had to spend 35 days for Real Madrid to drop the three points against a team at the top of the League and with a ‘relaxed’ team after winning the title and going to the final of the Champions League.
The defeat at the Metropolitano is the only one conceded against the main teams in the domestic championship, against whom they only dropped another two points at the Estadio de Cerámica against Villarreal, with whom they drew goalless in February. In both matches, Karim Benzema did not play.
Instead, as a perfect example of strength away from the Santiago Bernabéu, the Madrid team has been able to win at the Camp Nou (1-2), Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán (2-3), Benito Villamarín (0-1) and the Royal Arena (0-2). In addition, he did not fail in other complicated outings such as San Mamés (1-2), Mestalla (1-2) or El Sadar (1-3), while apart from the aforementioned stadiums, he could not win Levante at the Ciutat de València either. at the start of the championship after tying at three goals.
And it is that Real Madrid is, by far, the best visitor in the competition thanks to its 41 points out of a possible 54, seven above FC Barcelona, the second best team away from its stadium. A regularity and reliability outside the embrace of the Bernabéu that have been key on the way to the title. In fact, the madridistas have not been as faithful to the Whites’ fiefdom as if they were outside its walls, since in Concha Espina the Whites have added 40 units so far out of a possible 51 and out of the 81 total they have accumulated.
At home, only the embarrassing defeat (0-4) against FC Barcelona in the Clásico tarnishes their credentials, with 12 wins in 17 games, but weighed down by the four draws at the Bernabéu against Villarreal, Osasuna, Cádiz and Elche, this last in the only one he scored (2-2), for only the two as a visitor.
This trend with the best white version away from the Bernabéu is repeated for the third consecutive season. After the 18-19 campaign, with Real Madrid 19 points behind the leader and totally disconnected from the competition, the meringues have always added more as visitors.
