The league championship resumes for Real Madrid this coming Sunday at 7:30 p.m. against Eibar. A duel for which Zidane has already made the vast majority of his eleven. An eleven, yes, that should not offer any doubt since starting with a stumble would be catastrophic for the fight for the League.
Clear goal and defense
Starting from behind, at Real Madrid there are several clear certainties. One of them is the goal that will be occupied by Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian has been offering a great performance and his fight for the Zamora places him as one of the fixed in this return. Similarly, Ramos and Varane are fixed on the central axis. With Nacho’s injury and doubts about the figure of Militao, both the French and the Spanish are postulating fixed on the scheme of Zidane. Just like Carvajal on the right side. not so much Marcelo that the duel with Mendy will be disputed.
Midfield with many options
It is perhaps in the midfield that Zidane has the most options to choose from. Without a doubt Casemiro will be the one who starts from the pivot as he has been doing until now while the rest of the positions will be raffled between Valverde, Kroos, Modric, Isco, or even James. However, the options of ‘El Pajarito’ and German midfielder Kroos are the most likely.
Finally, on the attack front, Benzema has a fixed place and, despite everything, it is possible that Hazard and Marco Asensio start from the beginning accompanying the ‘9’. Both, injured for a good part of the season, have had time to Reach optimal shape for 100% return, and Zidane may have them in place from the start. Otherwise, Vinicius, Lucas Vázquez, Rodrygo, Brahim or Mariano await their opportunity.
