Tiktukno: summary of today's events in sports, 2.10 (Sport1)

Two weeks before the great El Clasico in Spain, "La Liga" presents a turnaround: Real Madrid stopped after a perfect start to the season with a 1:1 at home against Osasuna and allowed the great rival to overtake me at the top thanks to a much better goal difference.



Karim Benzema, who returned to the champion's team in this game, could have decided the game when he scored a penalty, but kicked from the penalty spot into the crossbar and missed a penalty for the third time against the same team in 2022. Benzema and Mariano also came into striking positions in extra time, but this time they could not get the dramatic goal which so characterizes Ancelotti's team.

At the top, as mentioned, Barcelona was established, which returned there after 839 days.

A frustrating comeback.

A frustrated Carlo Ancelotti said at the end: "We deserved to win, but we missed a penalty. It can happen. We played well defensively. It was difficult to prevent their goal and in the second half they had one shot on goal. We were balanced. Benzema was not at his best, but He will continue to work hard for the next games - he is our best penalty kicker and that will not change, accidents can happen."



When asked why he preferred Mariano over Eden Hazard, the coach replied: "Mariano's abilities suited us better, it was not the style of play that suits Hazard."

Ancelotti also confirmed that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will be tested today, with the estimate being that he will be back by the El Clasico in about two weeks at the latest, but may be absent on Tuesday against Shakhtar in the Champions League and possibly from the next league meetings against Getafe and against the Ukrainians next week as well.



Osasuna goal scorer Kika Garcia joked at the end when he said: "You see Real Madrid comebacks on TV and you think now will be your turn. Fortunately, it didn't happen tonight."
