Casemiro plays Ramos

The leadership, the leading scorer and even acting as a central defender. The Brazilian replied in Pucela the virtues of the absent captain. It will be the pillar of Madrid in Bergamo.


If Sergio Ramos cannot emerge as a savior, Casemiro appears. The leadership and the scoring head of the absent camero were 'transplanted' to the Brazilian in Pucela for a victory that fuels Madrid for the League. He even finished as a third more central, between Lucas and Mendy in a variation that Zidane sometimes likes. If he had dropped the '1' from '14' on his number it would hardly have been noticed ...

The one from Pucela was Casemiro's sixth goal of this season, which reinforces him as the second top scorer for this Madrid and had another clear header before it could also be a goal. Four shots, almost like a nine. "Casemiro is one of our pillars and he helps us a lot from set pieces," Butragueño later reassured in Movistar + .

There are four goals with his powerful head in this campaign. They tried this medicine before Valladolid, first Atlético in the first Madrid derby (December 12, 2-0), then Granada (December 23, 2-0) and finally Alavés (January 23, 1-4). With Pucela's, four headers in four wins. His 0-1 from the skies put sauce on a very solid game for the Brazilian again, with 12 steals, three successful innings and even suffered two fouls from Valladolid.

On a historical level, Ramos and Benzema are unattainable in this squad when it comes to scoring with a header (51 goals of this sort as a Madrid player for the Andalusian, 46 for the French) but Casemiro leads, for example, to Varane. The pivot of the canarinha has scored 11 in Madrid (for 9 of the French central) and more than a third has done it this season, which still has a lot of cloth to cut. For now, the goals emphasize this role of Casemiro as a great pillar of a Real Madrid desperate for the bleeding of casualties.

A danger for Gasperini

Varane wears the bracelet by seniority but it is Casemiro takes the baton to despair first from Sergio González ("We knew that Casemiro was one of his great strengths, the man to mark, I am angry that they caught us like this") and start to worry, presumably, Gasperini. The football architect of Atalanta is waiting to know if he has to cover the Benzema headdress but what he does know is that he will have to see how to neutralize Case, who seems not to mind playing Ramos. And that, in Europe, are big words.
