The silhouette of the former captain ‘Ramos’ has been revived at Real Madrid

David Alaba is not only good at defense, he has also continuously scored in the last 2 matches. This makes many Real Madrid lovers think of former captain Sergio Ramos.

Even though he played as a center defense for Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos was previously regarded as one of their top goal scorers. The Royal squad swiftly replaced the Spaniard when he left to play for PSG by bringing in David Alaba. Notably, Real Madrid did not have to pay any money to get the Austrian midfielder from Bayern Munich.

Alaba last year adapted to Real Madrid’s approach with ease. He formed a strong shield in front of Thibaut Courtois’ goal by forming an effective partnership with midfielder Eder Militao. The Austrian star’s important impact helped the Madrid squad win both the La Liga and Champions League last year. It appears that the defender still exudes charisma with victories despite having left Bayern Munich. 


In the past week, the name Alaba has been mentioned a lot. In the opening match of Real Madrid against the host Almeria, the Austrian player shone again. Although only coach Carlo Ancelotti launched from the bench in place of Ferland Mendy in the second half, the 30-year-old still managed to help the home team leave with 3 points. Specifically, less than 1 minute after being on the field, Alaba made a classy free-kick to score a 2-1 victory for Real Madrid. 

Alaba has scored goals for Real Madrid in two straight games to start the new campaign. The Austrian defender contributed to the Royal team’s opening goal a few days earlier in the European Super Cup encounter versus Frankfurt in Helsinki by providing a close-range cushion off the midfielder’s back-head ball. Casemiro. Real Madrid supporters are ecstatic with Alaba’s recent critical goals and are reminded of former captain Sergio Ramos, who left the Bernabeu with a total of 101 goals. 


Alaba will grow into a capable goal scorer for Real Madrid this season, according to coach Ancelotti, who has every reason to be optimistic. mainly because the Austrian player, like Ramos before him, is a tremendously aggressive attacker when attacking under specific conditions. He can also take direct free kicks rather effectively. Like Ramos used to be when he played at the Bernabeu, it is difficult for Alaba to be favoured by coach Ancelotti for all of Real Madrid’s free kicks.


Before the 2022/23 season started, many people expressed concern for Alaba. The reason is the appearance of midfielder Antonio Rudiger – a player who moved from Chelsea on a free basis. With the presence of the German star in the squad, coach Ancelotti has made an adjustment in personnel. In it, he is directing Alaba to the left-back position, creating conditions for Ruediger to play a central defender pairing with Eder Militao. However, the former Bayern Munich player does not seem to mind that. He is still ready to play in any assigned position and has successfully completed the task.


In an interview after the home team’s 2-1 victory at Almeria’s field, coach Ancelotti gave many praises to Alaba. He affirmed that the Austrian star deserves to become a leader in Real Madrid’s defense like Ramos before.
