Benzema, Levante judge –


Nobody knows where the limits of a footballer are, not even himself. Benzema and Morales, who are turning 35 throughout 2022, have reached its ceiling when most are on their way to the bottom. Today they meet again at the Bernabéu in a match out of step with time: Madrid got up very early to be champion and Levante has woken up late to try to save itself. If today he loses at the Bernabéu it will be mathematically second team despite the final growth spurt, more emotional than practical (follow the match live on

When Cristiano Ronaldo left from Madrid, Benzema had already fulfilled 30 years and he seemed to have already played the twenty best games of his career. In fact, she considered herself a temerity that he club put in his boots scoring responsibility of the team without more reinforcement in attack than Mariano. His sequence of goals per season was 30-27-30 and in this one he has 43, at the rate of one goal per game. How many stars did Florentino sign? in his first year of the second stage only he survives, who was not exactly the most mediatic nor the most desired nor the most expensive. If he scores today he will equal Raúl as the club’s second all-time top scorer. Only Cristiano will be ahead.

And it is taken for granted that the French it will be today the striker holder of the team. He rested at the Wanda after the beating against City, but Ancelotti needs him active for the Champions League final. The coach already explained that he would alternate players until the last day, against Betis, which will be a dress rehearsal with the public. In any case, will rotate less of what you would like because He has not recovered any of the six players who were missing in the derby (Alaba, Marcelo, Isco, Ceballos, Bale and Hazard) and has also left out Carvajal and Asensio. In any case, the eleven will look more like a starter than the one that started at the Wanda because, in addition to Benzema, they will be Courtois, Mendy, Modric y viniciusanother one that comes out of the season on fire: 18 goals and 15 assists, records that triple the best of his previous life. The list includes two homegrown players, Peter and Gila, who have already made their debut this year.

the best Morales

A Morales They also took time to discover him. Levante signed him at the age of 24 when he was still playing Fuenlabrada and had not considered living from football. “Until I arrived at Levante, I didn’t think about being a professional. I always i saw football how an entertainmentnot as a job”. Exporter Juan Luis Mora, from Levante’s sports management, came looking for a central defender and ended up signing him. 27 years did not debut in First. Even Lucas Alcaraz, who was his second coach in the Valencian team, was surprised that no one had noticed him before, including Madrid, with whom he tried unsuccessfully as a fry: “If he were ‘pelao’ and with tattoos, everyone would want him.”

Morales has 12 goals, just two shy of his record in a season, last year, when he scored 14. He has scored five and given four assists in the last six games and Levante beat Madrid all three times he scored. An fantastic footballer in a team that has woken up late.

Lisci’s arreón

The Granota team did not win a single game in the entire first round, a terrifying fact that condemned them to relegation. In December Alessio Lisci took charge of the team, the subsidiary’s coach and that he had arrived at the club ten years earlier as an intern. He was the third coach of the season, after Paco Lopez y Javier Pereira. almost on time Felipe Miñambres joined the club as sports director and with that couple came the reaction. With Lisci Levante has added 22 points in 20 games, an average that would have kept in a quiet area throughout the course, but that final arréón will result, except miracle, insufficient. A defeat today sends him to Second. Even a a tie if Cádiz scores in Anoeta. He is hanging by a very fine thread after a disastrous year that has kept him in decline since the eighth day. The defense has been his downfall. Levante is the eighth highest-scoring team in the championship, despite Roger Martí’s decline (five goals, compared to 14 the previous year) and the low records of Soldier, his star signing. However, it is the most scored by farwith nearly two goals conceded per game.

Yes, he has won. two of their last three games in it Bernabeu against a Madrid notably more demanded than now. that data, his seven points in the last four days, the unconditional support of the hobby and feeling about what there isn’t too much that losing can lead to look for the miracle in the field of miracles. More difficult things have been seen. Ask the host.
