Pochettino talks about the Real Madrid confrontation
Under the hands of coach Carlo Ancelotti, Vinicius has really developed into a ‘monster’ on Real Madrid’s attack, and last night, once again, the Brazilian star confirmed himself as one of the players. The best attacker in the world right now.
Speed, dexterity, individual technique and smart passes all helped Vinicius shine against Paris Saint-Germain. Vinicius has always been a constant threat to PSG’s defence, and whenever he has the ball, the Brazilian talent always makes Mauricio Pochettino’s central defenders miserable with a total of 14 dribbles. Besides, Vinicius also showed efficiency with 3 passes to create chances, including an assist to help Real start the comeback.
Ignoring the disappointing first 45 minutes, Modric really exploded in the second half and showed the image of one of the best midfielders in the world. He was present in almost every hot spot on the pitch, helping Real control the midfield, actively contributing to the defensive front and making a strong mark when tearing through the PSG defence with two superb passes.
Witnessing the Croatian star “dominating the middle” in the great battle last night, perhaps few think that he has turned 37.
It can be said that Mbappe has shown why he is wanted by Real Madrid with a performance that could not be better.
From the beginning of the match, Mbappe showed his sharpness with a few situations that caused turbulence for goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. With the speed of “electricity” and the confidence and unpredictable in each phase of a superstar, the French striker became almost unstoppable against Real last night. But unfortunately, 2 of the 3 beautiful goals he scored were not recognized.
Perhaps, there are no words to say about the French star except the two words ‘excellent’.
Despite missing many opportunities in the first half, the mentality of a world-class player did not allow Benzema to give up. Instead, he continued to work relentlessly in the second half, constantly putting pressure on PSG’s defense and especially goalkeeper Donnarumma so that when this team could no longer stand, Benzema had it for him. a historic hat-trick in just 17 minutes.
The ability to finish, move, choose positions and especially seize the opportunity has been perfectly demonstrated by Benzema. It can be said that this is one of the best performances from a central striker in Champions League history.
