Real Madrid – La Liga Best performance from injury
R.Real Madrid’s 2-0 victory Granada I saw two good news for the boss Zinedine Zidane.
The first was to maintain their six-game winning streak in all competitions, while the other was the outstanding performance of Marco Asensio, its best in a real Madrid jersey since returning from a serious injury in June.
The 24-year-old had been confined to the bench in the last few games, but he relented Zidane something to think about with its display the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano Wednesday evening, after entering for the wounded Rodrygo in the first half.
Zidane had given Asensio opportunity to shine early in the campaign, but with the team experiencing bad form, the Majorcan native found himself in disgrace as his manager searched for a formula to reverse their slip – which he managed to do successfully rotating less.
Without goals or assists in 19 games, Asensio he was in a tunnel from which he could not escape.
But, with his excellent back-post, he crosses it Casemiro returned home in the 57th minute, Asensio ended his sterile race.
He also made contributions outside of this, hitting the post with an impromptu shot just before his assist and set up. Faith Valverde, which he could only see his effort saved from Rui Silva.
From then on Asensio he looked confident and continued to threaten the rear of the visitors.
With Rodrygo now on the couch and with Eden Hazard regularly off the side due to his fitness problems, it’s a good time to Zidane to get a fit and shoot Asensio in its arsenal.
Although this was a year that began with recovering from a long-term knee injury, the 24-year-old now looks ready to contribute further to his team’s drive for honors.
