(CTN News) – While it wasn’t the flawless performance on Real Madrid’s part, they won the match by a margin of 4-2 and took all three points against Almeria.
For Los Blancos, Karim Benzema scored a hat-trick in the first half of the game while Rodrygo scored the other goal.
Barcelona might be comfortably ahead in the league table, but they have struggled for wins lately, winning just one of their past five games in all competitions, which may put some pressure on them, even though they might be comfortably ahead in the league table.
The good news for Real Madrid, however, comes out of the game against Almeria, as there were some negative consequences for the team.
The two players who started for them on the day, Vinicius Jr and Eduardo Camavinga, were both shown yellow cards by the referee as a result of their actions.
Now, both of them have been suspended from playing against Real Sociedad in their upcoming match. Obviously, that is a major blow for Real Madrid, and there can be no doubt about that.
They have been very successful in recent years, with Vinicius and Camavinga having been their best performers. Without them, the team could find it difficult to compete against Real Sociedad, especially when considering how inconsistent Real Madrid has been this season in terms of performance in the league.
For the next match against Real Madrid, two players will be suspended
This season, Vinicius has been one of the most consistent players for Real Madrid, along with Benzema, in terms of goals and assists.
It could be argued that the Brazilian has taken his game to an even higher level this time around, despite the fact that he was as good as he was during the previous campaign.
The rise of Camavinga has been accompanied by a meteoric rise since the World Cup break, on the other hand. At the beginning of the season, he had difficulty gaining minutes because he was battling for minutes.
In the meantime, he has emerged as one of the best starters in the league.
In recent years, Vinicius and Camavinga have proved to be one of Real Madrid’s biggest strengths, which has helped the club to achieve success.
As a result, it will be fascinating to see what they will be able to do without both of those players, against a strong Real Sociedad team.
