The reason (of weight) that has made Mendy a key to Zidane

Ferland Mendy has become the left side holder of Zidane. The French again became a starter in the league in a very important game such as the derby against Atlético de Madrid. The result was the usual with the Real Madrid winning and without conceding a goal when the Frenchman is on the pitch. The white set with Mendy on the field accumulates 715 minutes without receiving a goal.

His defensive potential is brutal but yesterday he was more decisive in the offensive phase as was the assistance to Benzema. The goal was born from his left boot with a tense and perfect center for his countryman to score the goal that the derby decided. Mendy made a check that Vinicius he saw perfectly to win his back to Lemar.

This is the first goal assist he runs as a Real Madrid player. Last season with Lyon, he gave two (before Hoffenheim and Strasbourg). This action more than justifies that Zidane has opted for his compatriot before Marcelo, who was the usual defender of the Real Madrid left wing (Mendy had fun and gave the goal pass with an incredible thread).

Defensively he returned to look as usual with a saving leg that prevented at 3 minutes an action in which belt I had everything in favor to make the 0-1. His defensive behavior records impressive numbers. In the 11 league games that has been the starter Madrid He has only received three goals: two in Villarreal and that of Willian Joseph in the Santiago Bernabeu.
