Madrid went to bed this evening at the top of the standings, waiting for what Girona does today, Monday against Alavés, but unfortunately for the whites, the victory was marked by the serious injury of To rent out, who bids farewell to the season: “After the examinations carried out on our player David Alaba, he was diagnosed with a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee. “The player will be operated on in the coming days,” reads the white medical report.

The first reaction was that of Ancelotti, who appeared in the press room a minute after the blank statement: “It’s a shame, we are very sad. Another player who falls. I’ve never had three crosses in four months. What the team has to do is hold on, as we have done so far. We did more than people expected. “We will see in the coming days if anything can be done.”

It concerned Madrid’s options to go to market. The team only has two of the four power plants and the Tchouaméni emergency solution. At least Madrid will recover soon Carvajal, Vinicius, Camavinga and Guler: “Dani could play against Alavés, but we won’t take any risks. “The other three players will be ready after the holidays.”

Both White goalkeepers are ready, but it seems clear that Lunin has the advantage over Kepa. Ancelotti did not want to confirm his title, but his decisions last month suggest that the Ukrainian has taken the Basque’s part: “Lunin is one of our two starting goalkeepers, the other is called Kepa.

The match left good goals for the local team, like that of Brahim, who left grateful to a Bernabéu to which he is dedicated: “These are games that I usually make. He came in today, so I am very happy with the work of the team, the goal and the victory. It’s one of the best of my career and, what’s more, I did it at the Bernabéu. “Being applauded here is something unique , a dream.”

Marcelino, furious

Before Ancelotti, Marcelino appeared. The Asturian coach was very energetic about his team’s play: “Today we didn’t lose thanks to VAR. It was a serious defeat. We were bad with and without the ball. When you do very poorly, there is no rival in the First Division who will not surpass you. “It’s the worst game since I returned to Villarreal.”

The Villarreal coach went further and assured that if his team did not improve, they would be closer to relegation than any other goal: “We have been way below our level. If we add the same points after Christmas as today, we will be close to Second. We have conceded nine goals in the last three matches. “By conceding three goals per game, we will be in the Second Division.”
