The bleeding of goals that weighs down Valencia and ignites Bordals

Real Madrid-Valencia (9:00 p.m.)

The fourth highest-scoring team in LaLiga, with 28 goals in 19 games, visits the Bernabu. In his five seasons at Getafe, the Alicante coach had not exceeded 20.

Soccer is also played without the ball. If we do not understand that, it is understood why we have so many goals. The desperate cry of Jos Bordals in the match that closed the first round has its origin in a statistic that places the Valencia with 28 goals conceded as the fourth most thrashed team in the League. And today visit the Santiago Bernabu to measure up to the leader.

That figure is, in the words of the Alicante technician, An atrocity, a hemorrhage that not only weighs down the team but hits squarely on the image that has been built since he arrived in the First Division and, especially, in front of the team. Getafe, where in his last campaign he fit 43, but in the rest he was well below.

To date, only Levante (41), Cdiz (32) and Alavs (30) have more goals against than the Valencians in this first round, who have suffered 87 shots between the three clubs in the 19 games played , 32% of which have ended up rising to the scoreboard. Only five times have they managed to leave their goalkeeper to zero, but in as many games they have conceded at least three goals.

A patch that will not hold

It is a fact that places them very far from the goal that the coach had set to finish the championship with 35 goals against. The challenge was certainly complex, because only in the second season of Marcelino This statistic was reached and the team was fourth entered the Champions League, and in the last two seasons, with Albert celades Y Voro 53 and with Javi grace, the same. It was not enough for any of them to reach Europe.

However, and that is one of the reasons that encourages the coaching staff: in none of those complicated courses was the first round closed with so many goals against. There were 25 and 26, figures that at least doubled in the second round. And that’s what Bordals wants to avoid.

I tried it first with a system change to bet on a trivote that would strengthen the center of the field, with Hugo Guillamn of 6, and covers the defense, led by Omar alderete since the injury of Gabriel Paulista. The patch worked some day, but the technician knows that it does not serve to hold the rest of the League.

Ask for signings

That is why for days he has been launching a second desperate cry: he needs signings. At the moment the club has not moved, but Bordals continues to trust that they will sign a central defender and a defensive midfielder. Those are your priorities. I hope that, sooner rather than later, footballers will arrive to help us in this second round. I do not consider that they do not come, because We all know that the team needs a player to arrive, the coach transmitted again, who denies that it is a message of pressure to the club.

With what is on -without Gabriel and Carlos Soler for injury, plus Hugo Duro for sanction- to stand in Chamartn to try to hold Real Madrid. We will have to be able to give a very high level or we will have little chance. You have to be very serious and right, learn from the game at Mestalla: with two centers they hit us and we lost the job, record.

We are naive

If Hernndez Hernndez could jump to the field conditioned by the sanbenito of hardness that hangs on Bordals teams for five years, the technician warned him that Valencia, although they lead the classification of teams with the most fouls, does not fit into that profile in view of excessive fragility. You judge. I have it clear. In fact, we are naive, lack of experience, I remember. Either Carlo Ancelotti gave importance: It does not mean much. Valencia defend with intensity and we also have to do it when we defend, he warned.

In the Valencian dressing room it is clear that Madrid will want to react after the defeat against Getafe and that Ancelotti recovers such important men as Vinicius, after their positive in Covid, or players who were not in the Cup as Karim Benzema or Luka modric. They are low Mariano Y Gareth Bale, with back problems, said the Italian, who is reserved for Dani carvajal ahead of the Super Cup.
