Real Madrid’s points tally should have hit 68 last night, but referee Gil Manzano’s ludicrous decision saw them drop two points despite them scoring a completely legitimate winner on the night.

When opposition players themselves sympathise and speak about the injustice, one knows that a robbery in broad daylight has occurred. What unfolded at Mestalla last night, especially at the end of the game, was nothing short of criminal.

What was the issue?

Working the ball from a final corner, Luka Modric whipped the ball into the area in the dying seconds. The referee had not blown the whistle to this point, legally allowing Los Blancos to continue the play for one final chance.

The ball fell to Brahim Diaz who whipped the cross in. However, the referee blew his whistle before Jude Bellingham headed the ball into the net, thus claiming that he could not count the same.

The incident, the feeling of betrayal and injustice got Real Madrid players fuming on the field. A massive argument erupted with players surrounding the referee, and Joselu was shown a yellow card for dissent while Bellingham received a straight red.

Rampage in the tunnel

As revealed by Radio MARCA, the player’s rage continued well into the dressing room, and the Real Madrid stars were involved in a major brawl.

Vinicius Jr, Antonio Rudiger, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Dani Ceballos were the most involved in the outburst as they did not shy away from showing their dissatisfaction.

Tchouameni was distraught and furious with the referee’s decision and broke the TV interview board in the tunnel with uncontrollable rage.

Apart from Rudiger and Tchouameni who were fuming, Ceballos, Vinicius, and members of Real Madrid’s staff confronted security members after the game while there was also an altercation with someone from the Valencia bench.

Footage shows a member of the Valencia staff having a go at Vinicius, with Rudiger then confronting him and asking him to meet in the tunnel.

Needless to say, the situation got out of hand last night as tempers flared following a hugely controversial call by the referee.

    The referee was biased and unjust with real Madrid.
    The red card shown to Jude Bellingham and joselu,s yellow card should be cancelled immediately.
    The referee should send an apology letter to real Madrid as quickly as possible.

It is set up to be a transformative summer for Real Madrid. After the UEFA Champions League final has concluded and the grand showdown finally has a victor, the Merengues are expected to undergo a squad revamp.

Indeed, the Santiago Bernabeu is preparing to welcome several high-profile signings, while also bidding farewell to some beloved Madrid legends.

Considering the potential arrivals of Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, as well as Toni Kroos’ recent retirement, here is how Real Madrid could shape up next season:

Goalkeeper

Having made a long-awaited return from injury, Thibaut Courtois is anticipated to guard Real Madrid’s goal next season once more.

The Belgian goalie has already started featuring in the starting XI and is expected to play against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final, too.

As such, his place for next season is hardly in doubt. However, unlike previous seasons, he will face much fiercer competition from Andriy Lunin, who has enjoyed a stellar campaign.

Defence

Fortifications in the defensive line remain high on Real Madrid’s priority list in the upcoming summer transfer window. However, even with the given options the Royal Whites boast assurance and grit in their back-line.

The likely occupants on the flanks would be Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy, who have both produced great exhibitions throughout the campaign.

Carvajal is known to punish defensive lines and on the defensive end, his anticipation of forwards has been equally appreciable.

Meanwhile, Mendy’s resurgence this season has earned him immense faith from the coaching staff, as his defensive aptitude continues to set him apart.

In the centre-back positions, Real Madrid are expected to rely on the dependable figures of Antonio Rudiger and Eder Militao.

Real Madrid consider Rudiger to be indispensable owing to his front-footed style and the important role he has had to play amidst the injury crisis. Similarly, Militao is valued by the team as he proceeds to regain match fitness after recovering from a long-term injury.

Midfield

Thankfully for Real Madrid, their succession stage had begun a while ago and they have ample options to trust in the center of the park.

With Aurelien Tchouameni protecting the base of midfield, Real Madrid will possess security and deep progression.

Ahead, occupying the interior midfield positions, Fede Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga are well-suited to provide a combination of energy off the ball and threat in possession.

And to put the cherry on top, Jude Bellingham’s place as the number 10 behind the two strikers would certify his status as a pivotal playmaker and scorer in the team’s setup.

However, he is adept at making third-man runs and connecting the midfield with the offence and could play deeper to not only make up for Kroos’ absence but also facilitate more options up front.

Attack

Real Madrid’s offensive department is where the largest reform is expected to take place.

Kylian Mbappe’s goalscoring instincts need little introduction by now and he is thus anticipated to be fielded as the striker.

Vinicius Jr. is expected to take up the position as a secondary striker drifting from the left, something he has become quite accustomed to this season.

It is worth noting that Endrick could also play a part by either replacing Vinicius off the bench and playing off Mbappe.

It remains to be seen how many men forward Ancelotti will commit to but the presence of Mbappe and Vinicius seems set in stone, given their huge profiles and status in world football. How the manager uses Rodrygo Goes will be interesting to see as well.

All in all, considering Ancelotti’s proficiency in profiling players, Madrid fans can expect to see these stars play in favourable environments.
