Life is currently not ideal at Real Madrid.
The rumours of Zinedine Zidane walking on thin ice and not being bulletproof anymore are still going strong and despite Los Blancos finally getting points on the board in the Champions League, with a 1-0 win over Galatasaray, their victories are anything but convincing.

Still, the same can’t be said for their 22-year-old loanee, Sergio Reguilon.
Sevilla are not in a much better position as far as the results in La Liga go – currently seventh behind the fourth-placed Blancos – but the young left-back is definitely enjoying his stay with the Andalusians.
After all, he has already taken part in eight games so far in the ongoing 2019/20 season in the Spanish top-flight, tallying 649 minutes in the process.
But more importantly, whenever he has been called into action, Reguilon’s delivered, dropping some impressive displays along the way. As a direct result of that, he already has a goal and an assist to his name and has averaged two key passes per game while maintaining 81.1% passing accuracy.
Not only that but he’s also recorded one shot and 1.9 dribbles per game. Bear in mind, however, that we are talking about a left-back first and foremost, which makes these stats even more impressive than they already are for a 22-year-old player.
As far as his defensive contributions go, he’s averaged 1.3 tackles, 1.3 interceptions and 1.1 clearances per game, which could well go up as he tallies more minutes in the future.

It’s funny how football often writes these weird stories. During the summer, he was something of an outcast but the decision to loan him out didn’t seem right at all.
So far, that has turned out to be true for the Galacticos, but it couldn’t be farther from it for young Reguilon. He keeps playing week in, week out and more importantly, he keeps impressing while Real are struggling back at the capital.
Talk about an insult to injury.
