The relief at Real Madrid was great on Saturday evening after the beautiful 1-3 win over FC Barcelona in El Clásico. The team of trainer Zinedine Zidane was in a lesser period, but prevented a crisis in Camp Nou.

Trainer Zidane doubts whether criticism was justified

Real surprisingly lost at home last week with 0-1 to Cádiz CF and also went down four days later in the Champions League against Shakhtar Donetsk (2-3). The criticized Madrid people recovered precisely in the away match against rival Barcelona.

“We knew how to put criticism aside and that was to unite after a terrible week. There was no time to sulk,” captain Sergio Ramos said after the game at Camp Nou, where he scored after half time from a penalty kick.

The 34-year-old Spaniard took the 1-2 in his 45th Clásico, after which Luka Modric secured Real’s victory in the final phase. The first two goals were scored in the first eight minutes and were credited to Federico Valverde and Ansu Fati.

Ramos believes his team has shown recovery in Barcelona. “We have shown that criticism does not affect us and that we always keep going. I have been here for sixteen years now and I know that a crisis can arise after two bad matches. Let’s hope it stays with those two matches. This victory is in any case a mental boost. “

The win is also good news for trainer Zidane, whose position, according to Spanish media, had come under pressure from the recent defeats. The Frenchman finds it difficult to say why Real did well against Barcelona.

“Sometimes there is no good explanation for a certain performance, but we want to keep playing anyway,” said Zidane. “I don’t know whether the criticism of my team was justified or not. All I can say is that I am proud of my players. After all that has been said about us, we should enjoy this.”

Due to the victory, Real Madrid can call itself the leader in La Liga for the time being with thirteen points from six games. The closest attacker and fellow townsman Atlético Madrid has played two points less and a match less.
