The current football events are attracted by the following main highlights of the match.
1. The day of Hazard’s incomplete return in La Liga
Real Madrid’s transfer blockbuster returned after nearly 90 days of sitting out due to injury, this is also the first time Hazard plays for Real in 2020.
But things would have been more complete had the royal team won a victory. Hazard is the best match name with three chances created – the most on the pitch in the last draw.
Hazard also brought the penalty to help Real increase the score to 2-1. It was understandable that the Belgian striker left the field in the 73rd minute when he had just returned to the first match. However, it can be seen that the left-wing of Los Blancos is no longer dangerous when Hazard is no longer on the pitch.
2. Defective line mistaken, Real paid off bitterly
The Real defense played extremely well in the match, but only two ticking mistakes made the team expensive.
In the 7th minute, it was Raphael Varane with not definitive in the offside trap so that Smolov could easily get down to score.
Carvajal meanwhile repeated this mistake at the second goal when Mina was in a comfortable position facing Courtois and scored after a one-touch finish.
Vigo almost have only three real dangerous chances, and they have scored both goals in this match
3. The race to the championship is being increased the difficulty by Real
Real did well, but not enough to maintain a safe distance from Barcelona. The last draw against Vigo left Los Blancos only one point ahead of Barca.
Now just need to stumble any match before El Clasico, Real will have to see Barca bitterly regain the top, of course, must be accompanied by the condition that Barca won all the matches.
4. Zidane needs the strongest squad for the Man City fight
Only one more match in La Liga (met Levante, away, February 23, 2020) is Real will enter the Champions League battle with Man City.
Real Zinedine Zidane needs the strongest squad for the Man City reception at the Bernabeu. The difficulty for Zidane now is to win against Levante to maintain a safe distance from Barcelona in the next current football events.
Hazard may be given a break, Isco will be given a chance against Levante. Perhaps Zidane will ‘turn around’ the position of both full-backs Mendy and Marcelo in the next two matches in La Liga league.
