The Bernabeu was not filled out for one of the games with the best poster of the season league. The more than 10,000 empty seats reported an atmosphere of disappointment in the crowd, confirmed by the whistles of Gareth Bale when it was cited by the pa. In the memory of fans weighed more the memory of the 3-0 in Ipurua that the gift of Fazio in Rome, which is essential to get the 1-0 win that led to the victory in the Champions league. Against the inertia pessimistic, in front of the Valencia rose, a Madrid battler. A team of renewed generosity that found its best exponent in Dani Carvajal. Fully recovered from his latest muscular injury, the right side was a display of all that is that you have to be to get out of difficult situations when neither the stands nor the game they accompany.

There are moments that decide the fate of matches, meaning uncertain, which are the majority in this championship. One of those moments came in the eighth minute. Modric focused on the second stick and the defense of the Valencia desencajó. There where normally it should be Garay was Wass, who let himself be surprised by Benzema, who received the shipment of Modric with the chest before the finish line. The ball would have gone for the bottom line were it not for the stubbornness of Carvajal. The desperation with which he was to fight for to retrieve that ball is part of the character. Do not train. There is No way to test the conviction with which she locked the ball divided against Paulista. It takes a lot of class to get in oxygen debt at that point and dribble in a tile to Gay, who went to the court. Carvajal got to the center, and Wass made own goal. The 1-0 cleared the hieroglyph of a party which until then was an enigma.
“I'm happy with the victory,” said Carvajal, when you exit the field, at the microphones of Movistar+. “It has gathered all. The first part of ours has been the best 45 minutes of the season. The team has been very good. Then they have not gotten the tie, and when they took a step to the front to find the party have left spaces and I've managed to finish off”.
clinging onto the 1-0 lead, the Madrid managed the advantage, regained the faith, eroded the confidence of the opponent and ended up playing to the counterattack to close what is probably the most complicated that we have left in Baymavi this 2018.
“The philosophy of the club is to sign young people thinking of projects in the medium and long term," said Carvajal, noting the contribution of Reguión, Llorente, Ceballos, and Valverde on the second part. "That has been seen today in a midfield very young. I want to congratulate Marco Llorente because he has done a great party at Rome and against Valencia has done it again”.
“We've done the first part very seedy,” said the valencia Santi Mina. “No personality, no depth... All we have lacked. We need to learn. We can not go to a scenario as well to give the image that we gave. In the rest, we annoy everyone. We knew that we were not doing the right thing”.
Marcelino, the coach of Valencia, he noted that the key was in that goal triggered an outburst of rage from Carvajal. “The own goal we generated insecurity,” said the technician. “We are weakened in every way because we came from a disappointment in the Champions league. Then I think we did a great second time. Unless the action of the Bale on the top from close range to Net, we've had those more times clear of the game up to 2-0”.
Solari replaced the injured Marcelo with Reguilón and Kroos with Ceballos. In the absence of Casemiro, again replaced by Llorente, the changes in chains were life-giving. “They are the future of Madrid”, said the coach, praising the contribution of young people. “It is a great satisfaction that players like Valverde, Reguilón, Vinicius, or Llorente, that have come out of the quarry or of Castilla, have hours of flight time in important matches of the League or the Champions league”.
“I would like to repeat the first time more often,” said Solari. “We were quite well today and that is credit to the players. Clear that the youth gives energy and freshness, but you have to combine it with the maturity, the experience and the knowledge of other players. This year is as well. There are young people and veterans of a thousand battles. We have to find the balance to be able to compete with this template and open doors for guys who have to be in the future. In the big clubs it is important to distribute the efforts that requires the calendar.”
Marcelo and Kroos are injured and are waiting for diagnosis
Santiago Solari had to improvise. This Friday, at the end of the last training before receiving at Valencia, two players walked towards the infirmary. Two players of the first order in the template able to alter by itself for the functioning of the whole team: Marcelo and Kroos. The brazilian, according to the club, it has muscle problems in his right leg and, in the absence of evidence, you may suffer a relapse which would be during weeks of low after being out-of-competition the entire month of October. The German is suffering an inflammation in a knee, and the doctors must explorarle to determine the severity of the injury.
it's Not been an easy season for Marcelo, who already has missed eight games due to physical problems so far of course and one more for the rest. All his injuries have been muscular and always repeated the same pattern: the brazilian reappeared and just played a couple of games came back to relapse.
More rare is that Toni Kroos are absent. Without the German, and without Casemiro, everything indicates that Llorente and Ceballos will occupy the engine room. It was a great part of the merit of cutting the attacks of Valencia in the first part. Each time he progressed Evenly, Soler, or Mine, the ruffles real madrid cut the lines of a pass is anticipated, or closed the spaces between lines by excruciating transit through the midfield to the contrary.
