Atalanta’s midfielder had a very interesting chat with the journalists. De Roon said that come-back against Los Blancos seems impossible.
11 top-tier players
De Roon believes that Atalanta has not a perfect squad. After so many injuries and even the red card of the defender, Atalanta won’t be able to play against Real Madrid with the full squad. De Roon noted that Atalanta will need 11 top-tier players against Real Madrid to make a miracle. The midfield of Atalanta knows that come-back at Real Madrid’s home stadium is not possible with the current situation. He said that with quality players it will be possible to win against Los Blancos.
Real Madrid is ready for a second-leg of the tie
Zinedine Zidane met with the press after the game against Atletico Madrid. Keep in mind that Los Blancos scored a late goal against Atletico Madrid. Team got one point at the home-stadium of Atletico Madrid. The Real Madrid coach said that the team is ready to face go after Champions League and La Liga titles.
Real Madrid can’t score many goals. In absence of Karim Benzema, Los Blancos could not even score two goals in any possible games. In the match against Atalanta Real Madrid was dominating the midfield but failed many times. If not Mendy’s late and beautiful goal, Real Madrid won’t be able to win the first-leg. Mendy was the key player making big points in the last few games.
It will be a tough game for Real Madrid against Atalanta. Although it’s a game that could change everything for both clubs throughout the season, Real Madrid may see problems. Casemiro will be absent due to the yellow cards. He will miss the game and it’s a big problem for Zinedine Zidane. The Real Madrid coach has to think about a different approach because Casemiro always plays a huge role in both – defense and offense.
