On the 30th death anniversary of one of the greatest musical frontman of all time, Freddie Mercury, the La Liga giants demonstrated that why they are the possible champions to become on the upcoming month of May. On November 29, they emerged victorious over their staunch rivals Sevilla. Their devastating duo Vinicius and Karim Benzema registered more goals between them which is 20 than 13 La Liga clubs have total, in this season so far.
Real Madrid vs Sevilla match
Though Sevilla had an early lead in the match when Rafa Mir scored the first goal of the match in the 12th minute. However, Real Madrid as always showed their dominance and didn’t allow Sevilla to get an additional lead. Karim Benzema soon scored an equalizer in the 32nd minute, and in the 11th hour of the match, during the 87th minute, Vini Jr. scored the second goal for Madrid sealing their victory.
Transformation of the team
Carlo Ancelotti deserves a lot of appreciation for this transformation. Benzema, a few days back was seen openly telling Ferland Mendy not to transfer to Vini Jr., due to the massive lack of end product.
Ancelotti’s calm approach is magically turning out to be the best out of Vinicius, and it’s yielding results. He’s scored more goals (nine) in his 14 league appearances this season, than in his previous 82 games in LaLiga. He’s has been spectacular.
Amongst Europe’s elite, it’s only Liverpool, Bayern Munich, and PSG that have scored more league goals than Madrid. Considering the current form, probably Thibaut Courtois is the best goalkeeper in the league.
He needed to be at his best on Sunday, coming under pressure situations on different occasions. Succeeding with the big saves to limit to prevent Sevilla from climbing 2-0 up and at the death to limit the equalizer, Courtois has been truly essential.
