Getafe yesterday achieved something that Madrid last year could not . The white fans are even more pissed off with their team than yesterday after the defeat against Manchester City. And is that the Madrid team managed to pass the round against Ajax in Amsterdam. The Dutch team passed last year over Real Madrid , they looked like a roller at the Bernabéu. The playroom and goals, 1-4, was historic. Yesterday Getafe lost 2 to 1 but 2 to 0 of the first leg gave him the pass to the last 16 of the Europa League . They have made history.
And it is not the time that they have reached the farthest in this competition, since they were in quarters a few seasons ago, they eliminated another historic such as Bayern Munich, but they have eliminated one of the favorites such as Ajax and they have imposed their style on the one proposed by Ten Hag.
The Dutch coach does not support the Getafe style. In fact yesterday he faced Bordalás . Both technicians are of great character and have shown that their idea is above any circumstance. They understand football antagonistically. Both are valid but yesterday the Spanish coach was a winner.
If it is true that this Ajax is missing two key men like Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt , but in the Dutch team they follow Ziyech, Tadic, Promes ... that is. Getafe yesterday had all the merit in the world.
From Madrid, someone already dreams of seeing Bordalás on the white bench. “It's what Real Madrid lacks, that race, that desire to always win. Discipline." A disappointed white follower with Zidane said yesterday.
The truth is that Bordalás is throwing ballots to train a team with greater projection next year. Valencia and Seville already follow the steps. He has already said that he is delighted in Getafe ... but that he wants to make the leap to a larger team. Keep showing you're ready. Yesterday he left KO to Ajax . He taught Real Madrid a lesson. One more.
