The whites, who have not fallen since October 19 in Mallorca, visit a team with only one defeat in their stadium this season.
The defeat of Barcelona in Mestalla puts alio to madridista sunday, with the lead shot tonight at the stadium Valladolid. Be the second time the team of Zinedine Zidane Have the opportunity to stay in front of the board alone. The previous one, on day 17, did not take advantage of it. He did not pass the draw in Mestalla after the trip Barca in Anoeta. The incentive today is a lot for a team that looks at the League title with a special appetite. The French technician said it to Nico Alirn que Cant (2017) and has repeated it in recent times, in his second stage on the bench. He wants the league. Without a wild scorer and with the sper injured figure (Hazard), his goal was to create a solid block, which would forget the fragility that was carried forward last year to Lopetegui and Solari.
Without losing since October (Majorca), his new Madrid has been gaining muscle between showy functions and other ex officio, such as the last against Sevilla. Along the way, the Super Cup and a button of points that allows him to go to Zorrilla in search of the first place. Valladolid awaits, with only one defeat at home so far in the League.
The data, remembered yesterday by the white coach, serves to put his own on guard, spurred on by the change they have starred since the course started. Now the curves of the ball suffer their direct rivals.
Variants in attack
To achieve leadership, Zidane’s pupils must apply the known recipe, back and forth, with Sergio Ramos incorporated into the expedition by surprise. Last season, in full crisis for the elimination in the Champions League and the double defeat against Barcelona (Cup and League), the sanctioned captain traveled by private car to Zorrilla to support his teammates. They won, but it didn’t help save Solari from firing. Hours later ZZ was presented in the forecourt of the Bernabu.
Marseille is now complicated to elaborate the eleven due to the number of variants it has, especially in the spinal cord and the attack. In the lead, around Benzema, no one has seized the position with authority. They have added the majority, but without approving the opposition.
It is hard to guess who accompany the ‘9’ francs tonight, with Bale injured again. Isco, Rodrygo, James, Lucas Vzquez … Vinicius no, outside the call. Neither young Brahim, despite his good game in Salamanca. As and everything, neither he nor Mariano seems to have an interest in looking for a way out in the winter market, as Odriozola (Bayern) has done. Even to prepare the list, the technician sweats, who sees Hazard’s return closer.
