The Lightning continues without raising head. The Vallecanos fell last Saturday in Mendizorroza (1-0) and matched their worst streak in the First Division, consisting of thirteen games without winning. Iraola’s men have four draws and nine losses, while the red-haired team from 2002-03 recorded seven draws and six losses. Despite this loop of results, the people of Madrid are still out of relegation. Five above it, to be exact.
The sensations are not bad, but the rayistas cannot capture them on the scoreboard. They are not being effective in the areas and that is taking its toll on them. They have only scored six goals (two of them were signed by Sergi Guardiola) and have conceded twenty in thirteen days. “When you dominate and you have arrivals, it has to be translated into the scoreboard. We have not done it. And an error gives the points to the opposing team. It is not from today. The problem is that we have played this game a lot. We are not being forceful and this is Primera. You have to mark“, pointed out the coach after the defeat against Alavés.
However, the redheads see the goal close (34 points) and are not willing to give up. This week they face two dates in Barcelona, on Thursday against Espanyol and on Sunday against Barça. It is vital to add. “We knew that we were going to have the slump, but we didn’t think it would last that long. You have to work harder and be calm and positive so that the good ends up coming. It would be nice to achieve the goal as soon as possible,” Trejo said in statements to LaLiga. Isi also spoke to the club’s official media: “We need to do a lot to get prize. We must keep insistingworking and trusting in the team, which will take him forward”.
