Real won in Austria, great news after the small setback against Inter in a match that should never have escaped them, and with four points in the bag they look optimistically at the league. As in the first movement of Mozart’s 21st piano concerto, the Royal Society started happily but calmly in the city of the musical genius, with rhythm and the orchestra well directed by Brais and Zubimendi, impeccable with the baton. Two dangerous arrivals were the prelude to an outburst that ended in the goal. Brais gave the ball to his captain, Oyarzabal, who took a couple of steps, entered the area and touched it with her prodigious left foot. Subtle but relentless, without one note higher than another, to the bewilderment of Salzburg, knocked out from the start.

Imanol and his orchestra continued to beat the beat, with the very young players of the Austrian team with the metronome broken, crashing into the reality of a better planted team with many resources, well used as well. Nobody among the locals seemed to live up to what the appointment was asking for. As if Real’s goal wasn’t part of their plans.
It was worse for them after the second. Konaté and his attacking colleagues made a mess, they lost the ball, which fell to Oyarzabal while Brais was deployed, who received the ball and ran 50 meters towards the opposite area. Only one defender protected Schlager. The Galician looked to the left and found Oyarzabal; He observed the right wing and Take Kubo was running there, both of them unmarked, but the Real midfielder thought that the goal is for those who work for it, so he feinted, looked for space and shot to open the channel for Salzburg, who was about to throw in the towel at that moment.
Until the break, Real surpassed their rival by a wide margin, playing what they wanted and also without wearing out the pieces with useless efforts. It was those from home who had to run chasing the shadows of Imanol’s men, who without putting another gear seemed to have the game in his pocket, although you should never trust it. Gerhard Struber, the Salzburg coach, made desperate maneuvers and ordered a triple substitution at the beginning of the second half, while sending his players to board.
They pushed from the beginning and immediately the biggest scare came for the 500 realistic fans who were having a great time in the stands of the Red Bull Arena. Simic entered the area between the two San Sebastian centre-backs and the referee awarded a penalty for an alleged knockdown by Remiro. After a few minutes of uncertainty, he went to watch the play on the screen and rectified his decision. Salzburg still had a few minutes to harass Real, until Imanol changed the score and with Merino on the piano he attacked the second movement of Mozart’s 21st concerto. Less happy than the first, more serene, without surprises. A languid walker, with a certain sadness at times, what the team needed to lull its rival to sleep and take three very important points on the second day, after the unfinished symphony against Inter in Anoeta. In fact, only when the audience was already getting up from their seats in that cold opera house that is the Salzburg stadium, to applaud the txuriurdin recital, did the local team shoot on goal for the first time and Remiro worked. Five seconds later the game was over.
