“Real” – gloom: runs into the judges, loses important matches and again remains without Azar

And ahead of the matches with Barca and City.
In the season of Examples, a decisive period has come, when it gradually becomes clear who is stronger in the race for the championship: Real Madrid and Barcelona. And “Real Madrid has so far begun this segment very slurred. We list all the negative points for Real Madrid on points:
1. The results are so-so.
For 7 days, “Real” twice did not win in the Example. For the first time – “Celte”, when Fedor Smolov scored, evened and stepped forward, and 5 minutes before the end of extra time, missed the second goal (final score – 2: 2).
For the second time – Levant. And here it was more critical: 11 minutes before the end of the regular time of the match, “Levante” scored a second shot on target, scoring a victorious goal. The game with Levante ended in scandal. At the 47th minute, the referee did not give a penalty in the episode when midfielder José Campagna played in his free-kick. This pissed off the stars of Real Madrid:
• Dani Carvajal: “Even the judges do not know when to whistle a hand game. This is strange. A week ago we were three points ahead of Barcelona, and now we are two points behind. You can’t play like that. ”
• Sergio Ramos: “Hernandez makes me angry (the referee of the match Levante and Valencia). The judges used to be more respectful, and captains could talk to them. Arrogance is either there or not. “I asked the judge if he had problems personally with me, and if so, let him tell me so that we can fix this.”
Zinedine Zidane even bombed: “This is ***, because in a week we lost 5 points. But this is football. Having received this experience, one must move forward with strength, desire and energy. This is an unfortunate stretch, but we need to think about the next week, when everything will be at stake this season. ”
2. Hazard was injured again.
In November, Hazard broke – in a match with PSG, in a collision with Meunier, he received a microcrack. Because of this, he was treated for two months and returned only in the match with Celta. In the match against Levante, there was a new injury that could cost him a couple of months of playing football.
Hazard received a strong blow, and even Zidane initially called it a tough, but not very serious clash. In reality, Azar was diagnosed with a crack in the distal part of the fibula of the right leg. According to AS, Hazard can recover from this injury for more than two months.
Hazard was injured in a very difficult season for Real Madrid. Within a month, Madrid are waiting for matches with Barca and Valencia, two meetings with Manchester City in the Champions League.
Usually, “Real” confidently passes the February period of the season (the worst result is a draw and defeat). But, it seems, now there is every chance to get closer to the failure of the 2007/08 season (then Real Madrid lost 3 times in February and only won once). Madrid faces the most important defining matches of the season, both Examples and Champions League. All this without a better player.
