Laliga Santander – Real Madrid Tuesday victory keeps him at work
In what was actually the first of a series of finals for Juhlen Lopetegui, Real Madrid coach saved himself on Tuesday evening with 2-1 beat Victoria Plzeеньseemingly securing his place on the bench for Sunday El Clasico.
His position is not known, though, since in the eyes of the directors of Real Madrid his future is sticking with a thread, because the appearance matters almost as much as the result.
Despite the victory the team was not impressed and Florentino Perez, as well as those who passed the night on the Santiago Bernabéu, were not impressed by what they saw.
Lopetegui continues, but the impression of the team still remains in regression.
There is a feeling that teams get worse with every game they play, and players seem to find out too.
“In terms of performance, we were worse than against Levante,” said Benzema after the game.
"But the main thing is victory."
Following a trip to Camp Nou, the worst game for Real at this moment and defeat will lead to a change of coach on Monday.
the absence of lionel messi it is something like a double-edged sword for Lopetegui, and victory will be required of the Basques.
Both players and the coach yesterday talked about their problems with yesterday’s driving and the damage that caused this season.
At the board level, it is believed that this problem is a direct result of the Lopeguay methods and that the statistics are not good enough for the side that won each of the last three Champions League games.
So everything will be decided at the Camp Nou, and Lopeteguy will go to Catalonia, awaiting his sentence.
If something does not improve, he will be fired at the first defeat.
