Real Madrid started preparations for Saturday’s game. Team will face Barcelona and it will be interesting how Zidane’s team defends against Messi.
Formation of the team
Real Madrid has problems in the defensive line. Sergio Ramos is injured and can’t help the club. Keep in mind that Ramos was injured during the international break. He was very actively playing for Spanish national team. Ramos played against Greece and could not continue games against Georgia or Kosovo. The captain of the team returned to Madrid with a minor Injury. In just one day after arrival, he posted on social media and asked for forgiveness to Los Blancos fans as he can’t help the team in the main stage of the season. Keep in mind that Zidane and team has a chance to make or break the season in these couple days. Los Blancos face Liverpool on Tuesday and now it’s Barcelona’s turn.
Important points for La Liga
Real Madrid will play for the La liga title. As you may know, Barcelona has better chances than Real Madrid. Lionel Messi’s team has two more points than Los Blancos. Zidane has to do everything to win the game against Barcelona and overtake the main opponent. In the end, there will be Atletico Madrid waiting for it’s turn. Keep in mind that Diego Simeone’s team is still dominating La Liga currently. Although, Barca and Real Madrid have a chance to win the title too. Barcelona will play against Atletico Madrid in two weeks, so every point has a very different meaning.
In absence of Sergio Ramos, Zidane may use Nacho and Militao. Last week, Zidane used Marcelo and Vazqeuz as the main full-backs and it was very interesting to see how Real Madrid was playing from the defensive line. Varane and Militao were playing in the central defense and Marcelo was helping Ferland Mendy.
