Modric grabs the post

The Croatian, who came out of the picture due to injuries and takeoff of Fede Valverde, hit the table at Eibar. At 34, he still promises to fight.


The finest Real Madrid of the last months had left a movie poster, with Kroos, Casemiro and Fede Valverde dominating the scene, and a very well-known collateral damage, Modric's apparent background. But the Croatian, 34 years old, has plenty of boards and, seen as seen in Ipurua, football. Before Eibar he claimed the role he has been playing since his arrival at the Bernabéu: he was titular and decisive.

Modric was embedded in the center of the field naturally, accompanied by Casemiro and Fede Valverde, the cement base that Zidane seems to have entrusted to the stability of his Madrid. The Croatian connected the team with his passes, being the fourth that gave more (61, behind Carvajal -74-, Varane -63- and Casemiro -63-, and almost doubling Fede -33-) and the second in percentage of success in the distribution (91.8%, behind 93% of Mendy, who participated much less) .

Injuries, Modric's great handicap this course

Knowing how to do Modric in construction stifled Eibar's characteristic pressure, disarming Mendilibar's slate. "We have run badly, without meaning. We have left as usual, pressing up, but it is true that they went easy," Sergi Enrich had to lament. And, as he continues to decipher football as few, even Ballon d'Or, Modric also intervened in the play of 0-1 and embellished his match enabling 0-4 to Fede, who premiered as a scorer with a shot very Kroos .

Modric's performance allows him to stop burials and anticipated tributes after a simple month and that has been reflected in his downturn of minutes, from 1,077 last season at this point to 484 today. He was substitute against Granada, although he left in the first half due to Kroos' injury and scored; He was in the infirmary against Mallorca and Galatasaray, as against Levante, PSG, Sevilla and Osasuna in September; He played only 28 minutes in the choral exhibition against Leganés; He started out on the criticized puncture against Betis and returned to the substitution on the set at Galatasaray on Wednesday. Now his reaction allows him to hold on to the post.
