Real Madrid insists until victory in Almería

The League champion starts with a comeback thanks to goals from Lucas and Alaba

MADRID, Aug. 15 (.) –

Real Madrid beat Almería (1-2) this Sunday in the first day of LaLiga Santander for the defending champion, played at a Power Horse Stadium that believed for many minutes to score against its prestigious rival, but the white siege ended up giving the return to the marker in the last half hour.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team took Ramazani’s blow after six minutes, but from there he launched his reaction. Madrid forgave a lot, with Vinicius and Benzema creating a lot of danger and, in the second half, Almería responded in part with a back-and-forth that ended with goals from Lucas Vázquez and David Alaba.

The champion of the European Super Cup last Wednesday rotated as his coach warned, starting the signings Rudiger and Tchouaméni. The defender escaped Ramazani, winning the back with a great pass from Eguaras to beat Courtois with quality and power. It was also difficult for the Frenchman to warm up, but the Whites’ offensive posture ate up the midfield for many minutes.

Benzema, Valverde, another of the Uruguayan, Vinicius, in just four minutes after the 1-0 Ancelotti’s team was able to tie the game. Almería did not arrive much but they did it with danger, with Sadiq touching the squad. Fernando began to become great under the sticks, complicating the eleven for the signing Pacheco, before Vinicius’s overflows or Rudiger’s set pieces.

The resistance seemed to falter in the premises and, at least, in the second half Rubi’s men managed to threaten the rival goal. Madrid played with fire but relied on their best punch, although Fernando once again stood between Benzema and the goal. Modric’s entry gave the visitors a little more criteria.

However, the 1-1 came through insistence, with another play between ‘Vini’ and Benzema, with the loose ball for Lucas Vázquez. The Spanish international had already scored in the first half, annulled for offside, but the second went up. Almería was losing the game and Rubi made the substitutions for him when it was just 1-2.

Alaba, who had just entered the field, pulled on the stripes that he already wears, called for a free kick and put it in the squad in the 75th minute. Hazard’s impact was not that great in the game, but Madrid already looked superior both in the field as on the scoreboard. The newly promoted Almería did not give up and had the tie through Curro. The Andalusian team pressed and Madrid answered hand in hand with victory.
