Asensio, Real’s secret weapon will use in the semi-final second leg against Man City?

Not often starting this season, but Marco Asensio has always been effective when appearing on the pitch. Maybe he will become a secret weapon for Real Madrid to hope to defeat the host Man City in the upcoming Champions League semi-final second leg.

With the intention of “shelving” for the second leg of the 2022/23 Champions League semi-final at Etihad Stadium in the middle of this week, coach Carlo Ancelotti has put a series of pillars on the bench, especially strikers like Karim Benzema, Vinicius Jr… Leading the charge of the Madrid team in the match against Getafe was striker Marco Asensio.

Asensio did not betray the trust that coach Ancelotti has placed in him. After a lot of stopping and chances were missed by the home team’s strikers, the former Mallorca man finally got the ball into the net of goalkeeper David Soria. 20 minutes before the end of the Madrid Derby, receiving the ball from Lucas Vazquez’s cross, Asensio fired a decisive left footed shot, the ball hit Getafe’s net.

This is not the first time this season, Asensio shines, after being given the opportunity by coach Ancelotti. Before that, in the 30th round of La Liga, when he started in Real Madrid’s match against Celta Vigo, the 27-year-old striker also shone with the opening goal, contributing to the home team’s 2-0 victory. Or in the 2-0 victory of the Royal team against the away team Valencia in round 17, Asensio played prominently. He especially played well with striker Karim Benzema and was the one who opened the scoring for Real Madrid in the first half of the second half.

Including the goal against Getafe last weekend, Asensio has scored a total of 11 goals this season, including 8 goals in the framework of La Liga and 3 times “shooting” in the Champions League. That figure is not bad for a player who has been regularly banished by Mr. Ancelotti to the bench this season. The effectiveness of Asensio every time he plays has been highly appreciated by Carletto. Even in an interview not long ago, the Italian military leader also pledged to create conditions for the 27-year-old striker to play more often.

Under Carlo Ancelotti, besides the sublime seasons with the club, there are also individuals who have reached the best of their careers including:

  • Cristiano Ronaldo (this old man is in the hands of Mr. Mou, Mr. An or Mr. Dan are all terrible)
  • Karim Benzema
  • Marco Asensio
  • Vinicius Jr
  • Rodrygo
  • Gareth Bale
  • Angel Di Maria
  • James Rodriguez
    For Asensio, this season is considered to be the most successful for him personally, when the strong revival has returned and every time he plays, the striker will almost have 1 G / A.
    Karim Benzema, Rodrygo or Vinicius flew extremely high in Real Madrid’s 14th C1 championship. This trio made a great contribution to bringing Real Madrid through each difficult hurdle and won the championship in a spectacular way.
    Bale, James or Di Maria under Carlo Ancelotti are all monsters in their positions.
    Finally, there’s Cristiano Ronaldo. Simply put, he is a legend.

Asensio’s goal against Getafe is also a great suggestion for coach Ancelotti ahead of the Champions League semi-final second leg at Man City. Coach Pep Guardiola has studied the play of Real Madrid very carefully, especially strikers like Karim Benzema or Vinicius Jr. But the head coach of Man City probably does not pay much attention to Asensio. Therefore, if he is allowed to play, the striker who used to wear Mallorca can become the “back of the sleeve” of Mr. Ancelotti.

Asensio was once praised and expected to become “the second Cristiano Ronaldo”. He has a technical kick, the ability to finish accurately and is especially good at “sniffing” opportunities. Unfortunately, in the past few years, the 27-year-old striker has not been used at the Bernabeu. The long days of grinding his crotch on the bench have more or less made Asensio lose his talent. At one time, Asensio was depressed and wanted to leave Real Madrid to look for opportunities to play more often.

There is a very interesting detail. That is the fact that Man City once offered to recruit Asensio at the request of coach Guardiola, after the departure of Sergio Aguero. However, Real Madrid at that time refused to release the Spaniard. This will make the upcoming Champions League semi-final even more worth watching, especially if Asensio is launched by coach Ancelotti.
