JABAR EKSPRES – Real Madrid have been strong in their first two league matches. The club from the Spanish capital managed to wipe out the first two league matches with wins, namely Athletic Bilbao (0-2) and Almeria (1-3). This result makes them perched in the first position of the 2023/2024 La Liga standings.
Euphoria is of course attached to Real Madrid’s new player, Jude Bellingham. The player who was brought in from Borrusia Dortmund for € 103 million managed to impress and take the hearts of Madridistas.
Jude Bellingham scored 3 goals and provided 1 assist in his first two matches. His brilliance has made him a key figure in Real Madrid’s midfield. Of course, Madridistas no longer need to worry if senior players like Luka Modric and Toni Kroos retire later.
Carlo Ancelotti managed to facilitate the English player in the 442 diamond formation. However, the shine of Jude Bellingham in this formation has had a fatal side effect, namely the dimness of Vinicius jr.
Vinicius jr. has been the best wing forward in the world for the past two seasons. The chemistry he has with Karim Benzema has led to prestigious titles for Real Madrid such as the UCL, La Liga, Club World Cup, Spanish Super Cup, European Super Cup, and also the Copa del Rey.
As a result of this 442 diamond formation, Vinicius jr. must play as a hole striker. This made it quite difficult for him to adapt. Until now, Vinicius jr. has only been able to score 1 goal from the first two matches in La Liga.
This sharp decline seems to be well realized by football fans, especially Madridistas. One of the comments to Vinicus jr. came from the club legend himself, Guti Hernandez.
