Injuries – the main problem for Zidane
It’s not a surprise that Real Madrid has serious injuries. If we read the latest rum ours, Los Blanco’s staff decided to start an inside investigation about this. There are many players from Los Blancos injured. Half of the starting line-up is injured and can’t help Zidane in La Liga or Champions League. When Atletico Madrid is dropping points, Real Madrid needs starting line-up players more than ever. Without Karim Benzema, Zidane’s team could score a goal and win the match. Real Madrid played with their favorite 4-3-3 formation. Modric, Kroos and Casemiro are in perfect form, and they dominated the pitch of Valladolid. The game was very tough for Real Madrid as there were moments when Valladolid could score a goal. Courtois was on point, and he was named the best player of the game. He saved Real Madrid from losing points on Saturday night.
