Madrid needs late own-goal, penalty to end league slump

Grant SmithNov 07, 2018

Real Madrid Captain Sergio Ramos has been a vital part of the Real side during their Champions League dominance in recent years has now been identified as a "cancer" in the Los Blancos dressing room who must removed because his influence has now grown too big, a club insider has revealed.

It was his shot that took a heavy deflection off Kiko Olivas which saw Solari's side finally break the deadlock 10 minutes later before a Sergio Ramos penalty sealed a 2-0 victory and Real Madrid's first win in six LaLiga games.

Well those days could be coming to an end, at least at Real Madrid, as they have now installed TV screens on their urinals with the plan to show the action as it happens.

The goal downplayed the tense atmosphere and highlighted the achievement of Vinicius who came on and turned the game on its head.

For the second weekend running, Bale came off when his team needed a goal.

And, speaking after the Melilla game (via Football Espana), Solari said: "Vinicius has a big future ahead of him, but he is very young". "They have found themselves too". In a latest report, Barcelona have been claimed to have their transfer hijacked by Real Madrid.

Rayo's fans believed but so did Barca, and when Dembele, also on off the bench, curved his shot in with three minutes left, there was still time for a victor. Given that Madrid have scored just two in their last five league games, Solari is going to need Benzema, Bale and company to adjust their sights if he is to get the job full time.

The Welshman played for 71 minutes and mustered two scoring chances but more worryingly gave away possession 14 times for Madrid during Saturday's home win.

Griezmann's bending effort in the second half looked likely to prove the difference in a contest short on chances at Butarque but Guido Carrillo's 82nd-minute equaliser earned Leganes a deserved point.

"The feeling is bitter-sweet", added Saul Niguez. "We want to enjoy him every day; he's a fantastic player".
