Four days after being defeated by Cadiz on the national stage, Real Madrid lost again at home. This time it was against Shakhtar Donetsk on behalf of the Champions League (2-3). Completely picking up during the first period, the Merengue conceded three goals. A delay that they could not catch up despite a commendable start on returning from the locker room.

An incredibly feverish Real

The Spanish champions gave the stick to get beaten, with an extremely feverish and abused defense on each of the opposing offensives or almost. Raphaël Varane, who had already signed a disastrous performance last August against Manchester City, was still completely missed, and not only because of his goal against his camp (33rd, 0-2). Its responsibility is also engaged on the first Ukrainian achievement, signed Tété (29th), like that of Eder Militao and Marcelo.

With two goals behind, we expected the Madrilenians to recover and try to revolt. However, the opposite effect has occurred since they continued to sink. In the 42nd minute, they conceded a third goal from Manor Salomon. The Israeli striker took advantage of a new passivity of Madrid’s central hinge to come and exploit a heel from Tete and fix Thibaut Courtois.

The second act of the match couldn’t be worse than the first for the Merengue. Touched in his pride, Real, who saw the entry into play of Karim Benzema, ended up waking up. The Spaniards even managed to come back to 2-3 before the hour mark thanks to goals from Luka Modric (54th) and Vinicius Jr (59th). Unfortunately for them, the third never came. The Shakhtar ended up giving up his offensive inclinations to preserve his prestigious victory. In the 91st, the visitors shivered when Valverde found the net with a long shot, but an offside position from Vinicius Jr, detected at VAR, came to relieve them. Luis Castro’s team did well in the feat of dominating the gang in Zidane. This is the first big sensation of the season in this C1.
