Spanish giant teams are playing on Saturday. Due to Champions League schedule for next week, big clubs have to play on Saturday. Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona have tough and at the same time, exciting games today.
Real Madrid V Levante
Zidane’s team has serious problems in the squad. With lots of injuries, Zidane could include only three midfielders in the list for Saturday match. James, Casemiro and Kroos are fit for the game while Modric, Isco, Valverde and other midfielders have injuries.
We won’t see Hazard from the first minutes as Zidane mentioned yesterday. Eden still has a bad feeling in the hamstring so that he will stay on the bench from the start. Zidane said that Bernabeu could see Hazard’s debut on Saturday, so we hope for substitution.
Zidane hailed Vinicius
During the press conference, Zidane mentioned Vinicius and his role in the attack. Journalists asked about Junior’s bad playing form, but Zinedine said that team 100% trusts and believes in Vinicius
We will see an exciting match on Saturday, as Real Madrid needs to get back to winning mood, while Levante has more points than Barcelona and Los Merengues.
Barcelona V Valencia
Messi can’t help Barcelona for this time again. Argentinian footballer is not exercising on the field, so we have to wait for his recovery. On the other hand, Luis Suarez is back from injury and can help Valverde’s team tonight.
Barcelona wants full revenge for Copa Del Rey Final. As you may know, last season Valencia and Barcelona faced each other in Copa Del Rey final. Messi and team could not score more than one goal, while Valencia scored twice.
Problems in Valencia
Valencia sacked coach just two days ago. Peter Lim, Valencia owner, decided to sack coach because of bad results in current La Liga.
According to rumors, Peter Lim had a lousy relationship with Valencia’s coach. Marcelino lost the trust of Peter when they could not agree on transfers during the summer transfer window.
Valencia will play against Barcelona differently. Marcelino was sacked two days ago, and it was a big shock for the current squad. Players had trust in Marcelino, but they could not make any impact on Lim’s decision.
Marcelino met with journalists yesterday and talked about his coaching career in Valencia. The former coach said that he was ready for departure even during last season. As it seems, Peter Lim was ready for sacking coach even during May but winning Copa Del Rey changed his mind.
