Modric resurfaces from its ashes

The Croatian lifted his football against Real. With 34 years, one goal and two assists, his most productive game in Madrid and it is difficult for Zidane ...


Luka Modric 'took off' a couple of years of the legs against the Royal Society. The Croatian reminded the player that he landed in the 2018 Golden Ball with his most productive game since arriving in Madrid in 2012: he had never given two assists and scored a goal in the same match. It has been surpassed with 34 years

Modric took advantage of the opportunity of Zidane, which already gave him space in Ipurua, to be the vertical element that Madrid needed in construction work. Active (four recoveries) and reactive (both assists were key in the white comeback) and with bellows. The physicist accompanied him until minute 82. The return of Modric makes it difficult for Zidane, because the Casemiro-Kroos-Valverde trio does not seem so immovable. For now, Zizou is limited to reconcile with the essence of Modric football. "Luka will always be important," the coach admitted after 3-1 to Real. "We don't score many goals with the midfielders, but when we dare, we can" .

A goal 'against natura'

The case is that Modric scored within the area. What would be normal for others, in the Balkan is, however, a strange element. Of his 19 goals in Madrid, fourteen of them went from outside the rectangle of the large area. The last of them was his spectacular missile in the 4-2 to Granada on the 8th day of LaLiga. Only four, including the one achieved before the Txuri-Urdin, have been from within. Goals for a Modric that at the time did not seem indispensable, but that resists losing prominence in this Real Madrid.
