After winning the European Super Cup last Wednesday, Carlo Ancelotti allowed some strong values to rest. Casemiro, Modric, Alaba and Militao started on the bench. Lucas Vazquez’s preference for Eden Hazard up front appears to be another bad signal for the Red Devils captain.
Another, a lesser known Belgian, had a much nicer opening match in Spain. For 21-year-old Largie Ramazani, the intro to Primera Division couldn’t have started better. Only six minutes later, the doctoral student responded quickly.
Ramzani was not just an offside and could only get close to his compatriot. Attackers sometimes begin to doubt whether they were only allowed to thrust towards a keeper as prestigious as Thibaut Courtois, but the way Ramazani ended up was clever: a surprise.
The score was 1-0 on the spot.
Ramzani left Anderlecht youth years ago
English adventure. First at Charlton, then at Manchester United and ever since
In the summer of 2020, he will play in Almeria, which was playing in the second division at the time. Ramzani has also played in various categories of the national youth teams.
After Ramzani 1-0, the archetypal picture of the game followed. Almeria withdrew around his team’s penalty area and tried to counterattack. Real Madrid looked, but found a solution only in the second half.
Hazard had just come in at the time and played with a foot in Vazquez’s 1-1 win. In the end, the crowbar was David Alaba. The defender was on the field for one minute and was allowed to take a free kick as the first contact with the ball. The Austrian drew it beautifully on goal. Thus, the riyal gets three points on the opening day.
