Real Madrid have lost a lot of inches and a lot of potential in overlooked play this season. The whites have lost Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane. The ex-captain was 1.84cm tall and a super power in the head, supplying a few centimeters with his jumping power. Unstoppable in attack and defense with the balls hanging in the area. The Frenchman was a 1.91cm bulk, outstripping practically all the attackers in centimeters and, in addition, he was agile and fast. In their place have come David Alaba (1.80) and Jesús Vallejo (1.84). Eleven centimeters difference in the center of defense.
The white team has lost potential in the game overlooked, it is something evident. It does not correspond to sensations, but to tangible data. Eleven centimeters less, a giant space of vulnerability within the area that will allow tank forwards to take control of the situation, at the service of the centers of the rival extremes. In a football that every day depends more on the physical preponderance of the players, winning in aspects such as defensive height is an obligation to be at the top.
