Pressured by the demonstration of FC Barcelona the day before, Real Madrid did not tremble and also went for the victory, at home at the expense of Eibar (3-1).
What does it matter if the Santiago-Bernabéu is, for the time being, no longer the setting for real Madrid, coronavirus crisis requires. For their first official match at the Alfredo-Di-Stefano stadium, the team led by Zinedine Zidane, this Sunday evening in a staggered match of the 28th day of Liga, capitalize at best.
On its usual training ground, the White House managed to make the match against Eibar easy, taking it without blinking (3-1). The Merengues quickly found the opening, following a great inspiration from the German international Toni Kroos (1-0, 4th). Sergio Ramos, served by Eden Hazard, widened the gap in half an hour of play (2-0, 30th), then it’s Marcelo who sort of sealed the fate of the game shortly before returning to the locker room (3-0, 37th).
The Brazilian lateral defender celebrated this achievement by a tribute to George Floyd, and made it possible for the people of Madrid to contemplate the rest of the confrontation very calmly. With notably Rodrygo preferred to Gareth Bale in the offensive starting trio, Real was able to be enterprising, and above all effective in the area of truth. The Merengues, however, eased somewhat during the second act, Daniel Carvajal leaving at the break in addition, for the benefit of the Tricolore Ferland Mendy, not used to playing in the right lane. Pedro Bigas was able to narrow the gap (3-1, 60th), but more was needed to permanently worry this Real Madrid. Next Thursday, still at the Alfredo-di-Stefano stadium, it will no doubt be another pair of sleeves against the FC Valencia. Meanwhile, two points again separate Barça and Real at ranking…
