The Real Madrid starts today, Monday, 10 days that are decisive for your future this season. The whites are played in those ten days whether they are or are not this campaign. Those of Zidane They have three tough and complicated exams that will dictate whether they can win something this season or end it blank. Those tests begin tomorrow in the first leg of the C quarterfinalshampions before him Liverpool in it Say Stefano. They will continue next Saturday, April 10, against Barça in un Classic that will be decisive for the aspirations of the two teams in this league championship. It will be on April 14, Wednesday, in Anfield in the return of the quarterfinals of the Champions League when Real Madrid has passed these 10 key days or can practically end the season.
Those of Zidane They fulfilled their first mission, which was to beat Eibar in the last game before these decisive days. The whites did not want to arrive with a defeat at this moment and beat the gunsmith team showing good football. Now, Real Madrid has already focused on tomorrow’s game against Liverpool. For Zidane and the white wardrobe there is nothing beyond this first meeting of the quarters of the Champions. An appointment that Real Madrid had not been to for two years. Although I am sure that from a Madrid point of view, what will happen in the El Clásico next Saturday, April 10, will depend a lot on what happens tomorrow at the Di Stefano from 9:00 p.m.
Defense of three or four?
One of the great doubts for the appointment against Liverpool is whether Zidane will bet on a defense of three, as against Eibar, or will he recover his usual line of four. The unknown is to know if the coach used the 3-5-2 to give rest to Varane, who had played almost everything with France and book Kroos that he had just recovered from some muscular discomfort, or it was a rehearsal for the clash against Liverpool. What is clear is that both Varane and Kroos will return to the starting team tomorrow.
What is good news for Zidane is that he has recovered unit B for this decisive stretch of the season. Marcelo, Isco or Militao They took advantage of the opportunity that the French gave them against Eibar and the coach can count on them again. Something that had not happened this season in which Zidane opted for homegrown players before some players from that unit B when he had the most injuries in the squad.
