Real Madrid: A spectacular defensive lock… that Zamora could be left without

Hscore a goal Real Madrid It has become an enormous task. In Vitoriawith the return of Kepathe white goal was again at zero, something that has happened so far in the League, something that has happened in 10 of the 18 games so far in the championship.

The 11 goals that the whites have conceded so far in the League is a figure that has no parallel in our championship. Behind him appears The Palms, with 15 goals conceded, a surprising figure for a recently promoted team. On the other side of that classification is the Almera con 42.

If the range is opened to the five major European Leagues, there are two teams that reduce the goals conceded by those of Ancelotti. In the A leaguehe Inter He has only conceded seven goals and in Francehe A string He has conceded nine. But in both cases they have played more games: 16 for the Italians and 17 for the French.

Lunin, sin Zamora

In Mendizorrozaas I had already announced Ancelotti in the Valdebebas press room, played Kepa. The Basque goalkeeper had not played since the match against Rayo (0-0). At Alavs’ home, he once again left his goal intact against a rival that hardly caused any real problems for the white defensive system.

The choice of Kepa makes The moon no longer opt for Zamora. The Ukrainian goalkeeper has played seven league games. With 20 ahead for him Real Madridcan no longer reach the 28 required by the trophy regulations to be eligible to win it.

Take advantage of Christmas Ancelotti to reflect on what he does with the goal. Kepa has always been the first choice, but it is true that the performance of The moon has given the Italian arguments to consider a change of guard.

In the case of Kepa, there are 11 games he has played, in which he has kept his goal to zero in six. To fight for him Pichichi He must play more than 60 minutes in 17 of the 20 remaining League games.

Obviously it is not something that keeps the Italian coach up at night. What has real value is the defensive strength that a team plagued by casualties in its rearguard is demonstrating. In Vitoria None of the five players who formed Ancelotti’s defense when the season began were not there: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba and Mendy. And with all that, the Madrid It is a leader with an imposing defensive system that concedes a goal every 147 minutes in the League.
