One of his grandfathers is one of the greatest players in Madrid’s history. Paco Hento is the only player to win six Champions Leagues for Real Madrid. His father and Hento’s nephew Paco Ylorente scored a La Liga hat-trick for Madrid, also played for Atlético Madrid.
His grandfather Ramon Grosso also played for Atlético, but is also known as a Madrid legend. Won a hat-trick of La Liga titles for Madrid, in addition to four league titles. He also became the coach of Madrid.
The name Madrid is closely associated with Marcos Yorante. Yorante settled the Madrid derby last night. But from the opposite side. His goal in the 93rd minute deprived Madrid of victory yesterday. Madrid and Atletico drew 1-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu yesterday.
Raised in Madrid’s academy, the dream was to become a Madrid legend in the footsteps of his grandfather, grandmother and father. Ylorente also won a Champions League in a Madrid jersey. But Madrid went to Atlético without a place in the midfield full of superstars. And played an important role in the 2020-21 season by scoring 13 goals as the team won the league.
Ylorente appeared in the role of Atlético’s savior in the Madrid derby yesterday. Just when Madrid looked certain to win the 90 minutes of intense competition, Atletico’s last attack saw the ball fly into the D-box. Memphis Depay’s header falls to Yorant in the 6-yard box. Lunin had no chance to block Yorant’s head.
However, it seemed inevitable for Madrid to score such a goal. Their two main defenders Militao and David Alaba have been out injured for a long time. Antony Rudiger is also injured ahead of the derby. As a result, Madrid played right-back Carvajal as a centre-back. Nacho who is in good form next to him. Carvahal plays well but is short but his weakness in the air is well known.
None of the Madrid back four are tall, and neither are good at heading. When Atlético crossed into the box yesterday, every time there was a goal chance. Earlier, Lunin’s save or the failure of Atletico’s players saved Madrid, but the end was not saved.
Earlier it looked like Madrid should have won the match. Vinicius Jr got injured at the beginning of the match. But substitute Brahim Dias was the man of the match. The winger, who scored in the 20th minute of the first half, still created several scoring opportunities.
Atlético repaid that goal. But Savis’ goal was canceled by VAR on the grounds that Sol Niguez was offside. This will be debated. However, the referee has arranged for Madrid to complain about the refereeing. Several penalty claims have been rejected. In between, Yorante’s throw to Judd Bellingham appeared to be a clear penalty to the commentator.
Madrid was the better team in the second half as well. Brahim almost scored the second goal with a solo effort in the 70th minute. But just then coach Carlo Ancelotti picked him up. After a while, Bellingham was also picked up. After that, Madrid lost control. If Valverde didn’t make two bad decisions approaching the D-box, Madrid’s lead could have increased. But Ancelotti was satisfied with one goal. And that was tomorrow. At the last moment, Yorante burned his childhood club.
Madrid is still at the top of the league even after opening two points at home. Because Ancelotti’s team is still ahead by 2 points as Girona drew this week. The match between the two teams next week could therefore become a title decider. Meanwhile, Barcelona remained at three as Atlético drew.
