Vinicius and Rodrygo time

Those of Zidane will face 5 games in 16 days with the offensive casualties of Hazard, James, Lucas and Bale's doubt. Vinicius and Rodrygo, the favorites to win in minutes.


Vinicius and Rodrygo are not counting on all the prominence they would have wanted at the beginning of the season. The two Brazilians want to claim, but the offensive overbooking is being a handicap for them. Of course, they can start 2020 with a different role because they will have the occasional opportunity to close the year. And, Madrid will face five games in 16 days with a three-four day average rest. This streak of matches is the toughest one we face in the season.

Hazard's undefined leave. Bale's doubts (he doesn't finish being 100%). In addition, the injuries of Lucas, James and Asensio make players like Vinicius, Rodrygo, Jovic, Mariano and Brahim have more minutes, especially Brazilians. Zidane is obliged to use a 4-4-2, where Isco begins to have more prominence. On the other hand, if the French coach looks for Benzema to arrive rested in the match against Barça on December 18, he must rest beforehand: Espanyol (December 7), Bruges (December 11), Valencia (December 15). Some games in which Rodrygo, Vinicius and Jovic will gain a lot of prominence. Other children like Brahim and Mariano can enter the fight for minutes. They are at their best opportunity

Less minutes than the average

The 'Vinicius Case' remains a headache for fans. The Brazilian started this season against Celta. That start was only a mirage because it already accumulates three games without playing a single minute. The Brazilian does not finish having opportunities with Zidane (he has only played 26.2% of the minutes with a total of 448). A few low numbers, but similar to those of Rodrygo (535 ').

Rodrygo's five goals are an incentive for Zizou to continue giving him a chance. But he has not enjoyed regularity: five games as a starter and substitute again. Vinicius is a different case that has not been able to repeat ownership for two consecutive starts and only came out four times from the start: Celta, Levante, Osasuna and Mallorca.

The third in discord is Jovic. The Serbian is also waiting for his moment. His three starts as a starter (Villarreal, Osasuna and Mallorca) have not earned him to enjoy more minutes. Karim's break makes it viable that, finally, he may have more options to win whole and increase his locker by one goal.
