Zinedine Zidane became a phenomenal figure for Real Madrid with his return as a main coach. This Frenchman returned to the Santiago Bernabeu, after EL Real shared his experience with two world-renowned coaches such as Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari.
The comeback of Zidane to the Santiago Bernabeu has certainly brought a lot of hope. Moreover, Zidane has presented three Champions League trophies in a row for Los Blancos in its inaugural season.
So far, Zidane has given a record of three wins and one defeat. Even though it looks pretty good, it hasn’t been satisfying enough as the world’s best labeled club. The season is considered as Madrid’s worst season because they have no chance to win the title in the remaining three matches.
This situation and condition seems to make Los Blancos’ players have lost their passion to win the match. If we look further, Zidane’s work is clearly heavier than before, especially because EL Real’s control is more complicated and seems difficult to cure.
The following are two obstacles that Real Madrid are aiming to during this season with a perfect victory until the end of the match.
Winger that doesn’t develop
It became an ordinary discussion when Real Madrid could not rise after leaving Crisitano Ronaldo. Los Blancos are claimed to have lost one guarantee of 50 goals per season, after the Portuguese star decided to leave Juventus.
Zidane and the coach had previously tried existing players such as Isco, Vinicius Junior, Marco Asensio, Gareth Bale and Lucas Vazquez on the wing, but they were not satisfying yet. Interesting to discuss when those five players have not been able to reach Ronaldo’s goal.
Ronaldo at Juventus has scored 19 goals during this season, and the five Madrid players have scored 15 goals so far. At present, Karim Benzema is the figure that is relied on by Madrid in scoring goals, even Benzema achieved no half of Barcelona star, Lionel Messi.
Defense that continues to decline
Real Madrid’s front line has not been replaced by Cristiano Ronaldo, but the back line can be claimed as the main problem in their failure to defend the title. Although without Ronaldo, Los Blancos actually still achieve more victories, if their defense are not as easy as being attacked by an opponent.
Even the record conceded they were worse than the mid-table Spanish La Liga, like Leganes and Real Sociedad. They also recorded a very embarrassing defeat this season including five goals by Barcelona in La Liga and four goals by Ajax in the Champions League.
