Real Madrid sink Santander

With what we could call an improved performance, Real Madrid beat Racing Santander 2-0 to snatch another three points making the total six points from two wins and one defeat.

Bernd Schuster, however, used a new lineup this time. There weren’t any surprises in the backline as Casillas, Ramos, Pepe, Cannavaro and Heinze all started. However, the midfield was quite different.

Schuster started with Diarra, Guti and De La Red at the same time. This gave the team more power in the midfield and allowed them to dominate the match. However, the problem was on the left wing as it seems unoccupied.

Higuain played on the right, while Ruud and Rau’l upfront, the later along with Guti and De La Red swapping places on the left wing from time to time. Guti got injured and had to be replaced. VDV came in and the game improved. Higuain played another great match. He was really a big threat and therefore he was alwaysstrictlymarked. However, that didn’t stop him from creating more danger.
