For an "award-winning" writer, this is very poorly written. Too much attempted poetry and not enough well-composed grammar. As far as the content goes, it's both shallow and blindingly obvious to anyone with a cursory knowledge of the team. She could have made some far more insightful points than the ones made here like the lack of an in-form striker other than Llorente, who is tired or potential weaknesses at full-back. Or the way most teams will play against them. This seems like something written by someone who primarily reads Spanish tabloids for their opinion, such is the cultural spin on it.
