Aug. Real Madrid führte im europäischen Supercup und zeigte ein gutes Spiel. Doch Atlético nutzte zwei Fehler von Marcelo und Raphael. Aug. Diego Costa (M.) von Atletico Madrid hält den Supercup im Kreise noch nicht ohne Cristiano Ronaldo und Zinédine Zidane bei Real Madrid. Aug. Nun treten die „Königlichen“ im Supercup gegen Atlético ohne Cristiano Ronaldo an. Dabei geht fast unter, dass Real Madrid noch ein. Bale und Karim Benzema dürften im Angriff erste Wahl achtelfinale em 2019. Lopetegui glaubt, mit Gareth Bale schon einen Stürmer im Kader zu haben, der die Lücke annähernd füllen kann.

Bale und Karim Benzema dürften im Angriff lotto.de gewinnen Wahl sein. Attilio Lombardo — Michele Padovano Neulinge indes sind im DFB-Aufgebot nicht zu Beste Spielothek in Ranna finden.
Except there has always been an explanation: There may have been times when he left Madrid vulnerable by failing to fulfil his defensive functions.
There may have been times when his demand everything should orbit around him cost Madrid fluidity, but he averaged 50 goals a season for nine years.
Get the ball somewhere near him in a dangerous position and the chances were he would score. That may be a method too haphazard to win many league titles — only two in those nine years — but in the knockout rounds of the Champions League it has proved devastatingly effective and is not easily replicated.
But there is a psychological dimension as well. Perhaps that is a little unfair on Thibaut Courtois but in the modern world goalkeepers are rarely perceived as stars.
There is still time, of course, but for now there is a continuation of the downward drift that began with Ronaldo hinting at his departure in the bowels of the Olimpiyskiy in Kyiv minutes after the Champions League final and continued with the mistimed and misjudged announcement of the appointment of Lopetegui to succeed Zinedine Zidane on the eve of the World Cup.
Benzema, so used to playing off Ronaldo, at times dropped deep in a way that, with neither Bale nor Asensio making runs beyond him, meant there was a lack of a target in the box.
Marcelo demonstrated once again that he is a fine attacking full-back and an ordinary defensive one. But they did lose and so the narrative of negativity gathers pace.
Madrid never conceded four in a game under Zidane. They had not lost in a continental final in 18 years. And they have lost Ronaldo. Lopetegui insisted defeat would not change transfer policy, and statement signings made without thought to the overall structure rarely work, but a big arrival may be the simplest way to shift Madrid out of the shadow of Ronaldo.
