Zidane must make amendment purpose. The Real Sociedad, an important rival, has discovered in the Cup the weaknesses of the leader of the League.
The Sheriff’s men have made it clear that in Real Madrid they cannot move six names in an alignment. That the white defense cannot be unconfigured with three novelties. And that the center of the Madrid field requires four men, because with three return the weaknesses of yesteryear. These are three fundamental points that Zizou must correct.
Constant errors in an unprecedented defense
For the first time this season, Real Madrid received four goals against. Zidane confirmed that he cannot deconfigure the rearguard that allowed him to add 21 undefeated matches. He played a new defense, Nacho, Militao, Ramos
and Marcelo. The absence of Carvajal, Varane and Mendy broke the consolidated scheme back.
Too many changes in eleven
Bringing Brahim, James, Marcelo, Nacho, Militao, and Areola into a blow was to revolutionize the three lines, an excess. They have not competed together and it was clear that some men no longer have the level to perform in Madrid.
Much better with four midfielders
Zidane had crowned the midfielder with a 4-5-1 and a 4-4-2 and before the Real Sociedad aligned a very weak 4-3-3, always surpassed in the zone of creation by the adversary. .
