El gran día de Lunin

The good is made to wait, and Lunin can give a good account of it. The June 22, 2018 Real Madrid made his signing official from Zorya, a transfer costing approximately nine million euros. And today, May 8, 2022, he will debut with the white team in the League. This was confirmed by Ancelotti at a press conference: “Lunin is going to playI will decide the rest tomorrow (today).” A piece of news that marked the end of the -eternal- wait for the Ukrainian: 1,416 days and three loans later, he will finally play a league match with Real Madrid.

The first time, to see how they were eliminated at the first change in extra time; the second, already this season, lived the vendetta; and in the next round, a tachycardia eliminator in Elche. He has not played since then, as he was a substitute at San Mamés, where Real Madrid was eliminated this season and Ancelotti, despite being in the Cup, opted for Courtois. Under the tyranny of the Belgian, whose performance has made him indisputable, he has spent two years. No minutes beyond three games. But that, today, will change. And he has a pending task: to leave a clean sheet for white. In his three previous battles, he always fit the bill.

The following season, 2019-20, he left on loan to Valladolid, a loan canceled abruptly due to the lack of minutes and opportunities. He did not play a single minute in the League with Pucela, limiting himself to two Cup matches (in Tolosa and Marbella).

The Zamora, in a fist

The substitution of Courtois It supposes a ‘glove’ for the Belgian, since having already the minimum number of games played to qualify for the trophy (28 with 60′ in each one), not playing the derby will allow him to maintain his great coefficient: 0.85. But it’s still second, because right now the Zamora would be for Bondwhose coefficient is 0.79. The Moroccan has been conceding for five games in a row and the race has tightened. Behind are Rulli (0.86) and Remiro (0.91). There are four days left.
