And Zidane tried to repeat what crowned him in the Spanish Super Cup: marking the man from Kovacic to Messi. The Zidane paid for it and dismounted in the second 45 minutes. Goal of Suarez in 54 ‘, Messi himself in 64′ and Aleix Vidal in the discount to practically sentence the League before Christmas and leave the coach assuming his approach error.

It is true that the sample is not wide. There are two occasions when Barça has visited Madrid with the Frenchman on the benches, but in both he has stolen the three points. The first complicated the only League won by Zidane on day 33 of 2016-17 (2-3), the second was a hard blow (0-3) in the first round from 17-18 of a league championship without history that tyrannized the Blaugrana team (scored 14 points at Atleti and 17 at Madrid). While the last of the four consecutive failures occurred almost a year ago. The Solari Madrid was disarmed before the solidity of Piqué and Lenglet and the effectiveness of Rakitic, which marked the only goal of the match (0-1). Vinicius and Reguilón, the triumphs of the Argentine, were not very remarkable of a white set that stood twelve of Barça and signed his league surrender. The Classic was the second summit of the trident that Solari could not overcome in his black week: elimination takes place on February 27, defeat in the League on March 2 and elimination in the Champions League on day 5. On the 11th, Zidane would return to take command of a white ship whose course is still trying to straighten. A victory on Sunday would end the ghosts surrounding Messi’s and company visits and allow Marseilles, and Madrid, take off the Barca spine at once. At the furthest in time came the whites launched and willing to sentence the League and left with the Catalans to three points and with a victim: Gareth Bale. The winger reached the game and his performance in the clash showed that his recovery was not total. Outcome? Replaced by Asensio in the 39th minute, wasting a change that could have revitalized his team later and undermining the confidence professed by Zidane and the stands of Santiago Bernabéu. Neither Bale sinceró, nor Zidane perceived it, but the biggest victim was the player. Madrid won the League and Champions double, but Cardiff’s was not the game in the final won to Juventus (1-4) at Millennium Stadium from his hometown. This Classic was the first chapter of a book of disagreements that this season does not stop accumulating weight.

The Supercopa of Spain of 2017 was the confirmation of the superiority of a Real Madrid that lifted its seventh title with the Frenchman in front. Without Cristiano, but with Asensio. The Mallorcan knocked down the door of ownership in the absence of the Portuguese on the basis of left-handers, like the one that opened the scoring four minutes after the confrontation.

Until October 25, 2014, more concretely. The team led by then by Carlo Ancelotti defeated Luis Enrique 3-1 and it was placed to a point of the azulgrana set. Cristiano, Pepe and Benzema would overcome both Neymar and achieved a victory that would not prevent Barça from raising the title with two points of advantage.TO the two games with Zidane in front must be added the 0-4 that suffered a Rafa Benitez that began convincing, but installed the runrún in the stands after the blushing defeat suffered at the hands of Luis Enrique and his.
