Real Madrid give cause for concern


Zinedine Zidane used his pre-match press conference to sbobet ninja warn that no game would be easy, but nobody expected Wednesday night to be such a struggle for Real Madrid against Al-Jazira.Even the coach himself cut a frustrated figure as chance after chance was missed, with interruptions due to VAR, three medical interventions for the opposition goalkeeper and an incredible performance from that man, Ali Khaseif, which looked like it could deny the reigning champions.The game brought Real Madrid to the edge of a nervous breakdown as they looked for a long time to be on the edge of missing out on the final despite producing the kind of siege previously unseen even by Real standards.A moment which summed up just how bizarre the evening was came as Gareth Bale scored a winner and David Bettoni, Zidane's number two, turned to Al-Jazira's bench and shouted: "ask for VAR, ask for VAR!"The video refereeing system proved frustrating for the players and coaches for Real Madrid, with it taking three minutes to decide whether

Casemiro's goal on the half hour mark should stand or sbobet ninja not."It influenced the rhythm of the game," Zidane confessed.In the second period, technology came to Real Madrid's rescue, denying Al-Jazira a second goal as Mbark Boussoufa scored from an offside position.The players were left with the feeling that VAR took away more than it gave the game, and Cristiano Ronaldo in particular was furious with each interruption.Real Madrid went all out in attack, throwing everyone forward, but that provoked some dangerous counter-attacks which led to two-on-one situations.Zidane's side took risks which looked like a team of schoolboys on the playground, and it was in one of those moves when Romarinho gave his side the lead and Boussoufa almost added a second.Achraf Hakimi, surprisingly chosen ahead of the rested Dani Carvajal, stayed back as everyone else verged forward and endured a torrid evening.Ali Khaseif was the key man of the evening though, with a series of spectacular saves which made Keylor Navas look average when he was beaten, even if he could not be fully blamed for the goal, though it is bound to have turned heads towards Kepa

Arrizabalaga again.Romarinho was also sbobet ninja like a jug of cold water for the Real Madrid players, and it was he who scored with Al-Jazira's only shot compared to Madrid's 17 in the first half alone.Karim Benzema had another disappointing evening, hitting the post twice, having a goal disallowed and missing an open goal as he was booed and whistled even in Abu Dhabi.Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric turned up when it mattered and both hit the post themselves on a night when it could have been eight of nine goals for the visitors.As if to make the situation even worse for the struggling centre-forward, it was substitute Bale who scored with his first touch.All of this happened with Sergio Ramos watching on from the bench due to neck and calf pain suffered in training before the game.In a match with 19 corners, the captain was missed more than ever, and Zidane will hope to have him and a fully fit squad available in 48 hours for the final.
