Zidane's plan

After finishing the League, the Frenchman gives his week a break. Guardiola's team have averaged 2.7 goals in favor and 0.6 against since June.


The last few hours and these next few weeks reflect the essence of Real Madrid, that maximum day-to-day demand that is not discounted even with successes. Almost the opposite: as soon as the 34th League was held, won on Thursday against Villarreal, it was time to face two pending tasks, one not as anecdotal as it seems, to solve the last league match by looking for a plenary session that did not take place, and another of crucial importance, the Champions League return against Manchester City on August 7,

After the institutional act on Friday in Valdebebas, the session on Saturday and the game on Sunday, Zidane informed the staff that he has seven days to disconnect; The team will return to work on Monday, July 27, already thinking about the maximum European competition.

Then a set-up for England will begin. The 1-2 of the way, in addition to the sanction of an imperial Ramos, make this a very complex mission. After confinement, City have won seven games and lost three, with averages to take into account: 2.7 goals in favor and 0.60 against per game. Although the citizens are struggling after the defeat in the FA Cup semifinals against Arsenal (2-0) and they will not be able to count on Agüero, injured since June 22.

A Real Madrid optimism could help that drop, perhaps the counterweight to that of Ramos. And the reinforcement of a Hazard that wants to reach its maximum by August 7 in the Etihad. Also that there is no public would be an advantage to challenge a team that has lost 3 of 24 games this year in their field. Although the great white trick, the ace in the sleeve, is a Zidane that has never been eliminated in the Champions: three participations, three titles.
