Álvaro Benito bets on Isco as a starter in the derby

Alvaro Benito, regular commentator on the show ‘The spar’ of the SER string, analyzed a couple of keys to the derby this coming Sunday between the Real Madrid and the Atlético de Madrid.

“To the Madrid you are interested in dominating. He has been managing the ball very well in the last games, he is building his attacks very well and he is having very few losses. The problem is having it from three quarters of the field onwards where it is difficult for him to generate scoring chances. I think Atleti is going to play with four behind, Kroos and Modric did a lot of damage to Atlético being lateralized. I think Cholo is going to defend many meters ahead and for that, 4-4-2 is more comfortable, “he said.

The former white player said when asked if Isco should start that “I think so, ahead of Casemiro, Kroos and Modric. Benzema seems not to arrive. Force? It depends on the risk, only Benzema knows that. It is a very important day, Real Madrid must go to win but in LaLiga there are many games and many points left. But I think Isco is playing well, he has given Madrid even more control, which was already a lot ”.
