The formation of Zinédine Zidane made a bad operation in the title race by taking only one point against Betis (0-0) on Saturday night.
After returning to the La Liga title race while qualifying for the last four of the Champions League (first leg next Tuesday against Liverpool), the Real Madrid can it explode in mid-flight in the final sprint? Zinédine Zidane’s training was again deprived of many executives (Sergio Ramos, Ferland Mendy, Toni Kroos or Lucas Vaquez) for the reception of Betis, Saturday evening as part of the 32nd day.
She did not deserve better than the point of the draw (0-0) which does not do its business at all in the race for the title. The Merengues, 2nd in the standings, come back 2 lengths of Atlético, a leader who travels to Bilbao on Sunday, and have 3 units more than Barça, who played two games less (before playing the shock of the week -end against Villarreal).
This time, Karim Benzema did not have the opportunity to save Casa blanca and his Rodrygo teammates, Marco Asensio, Isco or Luka Modric were also unable to find an opening. Vinicius (59th) and even the ghost Eden Hazard (77th) were launched in the second half and the young Brazilian in particular wasted one of the rare opportunities of his team.
Thibaut Courtois and Claudio Bravo, the two goalkeepers of the day, did not need to work very hard… The Andalusian club, which was deprived of Nabil Fekir (suspended), remains 6th and still in the race to obtain a qualifying place for the Europa League.
