He hesitated between Rodrygo and Modric: “I'm still out, dad!”

Among all the Madrid euphoria there was a detail of the Classic that went unnoticed. It was the 80th minute and the game went 1-2 when Modric, pressured by four rivals, gave a pass to Rodrygo … The Brazilian was out of the field. Rodrygo waited on the wing for the ball to come out to replace Asensio. But Luka, amid all the pressure, saw a silhouette with the white shirt and instinctively gave the pass, without realizing that it was a partner who had not yet jumped onto the field.

The action was an anecdote that both, moments later, recalled on social networks. It was Rodrygo who spoke first, uploading the video of the pass along with comic music and the text on his official profile: “Easy, I'm still out dad!”. In the sequence you can see Luka's reaction of disbelief, who did not believe that he had given a pass to a teammate off the field. Rodrygo also did not know how to act at that time.


Modric he replied to his partner minutes later, continuing the joke: “Why don't you give me the wall back, son?”. The truth is that the Croatian is practically twice the age of the Brazilian pearl (35 years has the midfielder by 19 of the extreme), hence the hesitation around father and son, as they have decided to call themselves.

Modric's response to Rodrygo's video.

Rodrygo, yes, settled the conversation remembering that in the goal of the sentence of Modric … The assistance was his. And he shared the image of the moment that transcendental ball passed him, answering: “But I gave you back dad!”. The Croatian dribbled over Neto with a dribbling which is now the history of the Classics and he defined with the outside of the right boot, putting the ball right in the gap between Lenglet and Dest.

It was the end of a game that has revitalized spirits of the Madrid fans and recharged energy before the 'final' that is coming on Tuesday, with the visit of Real Madrid to Borussia Park (9:00 p.m., Movistar Champions League). Beating Mönchengladbach is essential to keep alive the options of being in the round of 16 and, above all, to mend and sew the wound left by the grotesque against Shakhtar.
