Madrid has the accounts

His plan to hunt Atlético is to beat Valencia, Valladolid and Real Sociedad before the Wanda derby (March 7).


Madrid remains true to its DNA: never give up. As if it were a movie in the James Bond saga. Never say "never say never again." In the Valdebebas dressing room the cry came from the throat of several veterans: "Come on team! If we reach the March derby with nine more points, we will win this League". The accounts are clear in the head of Zidane and his players.

If the current league champion wins his next three league games (this Sunday with Valencia in Valdebebas, on Saturday 20 in Zorrilla to Valladolid, and on March 1 to Real in Di Stéfano), the whites consider that if they present themselves In the Wanda derby (March 7) with 55 points, Cholo's troops will be shocked just to imagine what a new triumph for their eternal enemy would mean.

And I say new because do not forget that the only defeat that the rojiblancos have reaped in this league was against Madrid in Valdebebas, suffering a corrective game and result (2-0). In the white club they consider that if their team does their homework in these next three days and does not make new mistakes, they will put such pressure on Atleti that they could surely accuse them in the 7-M derby. The objective is that after that match, and with 12 days to play, the LaLiga melon will be reopened and all the applicants will start almost from the starting box.Do not forget that in these next three days the current leader must pay a visit to the dangerous Granada (this Saturday in Los Cármenes), then travel to Orriols on Wednesday the 17th against the launched Levante by Paco López (postponed match of the second day of the League) and that before the derby he will pay a visit to Villarreal de Emery at La Cerámica. A calendar full of bombs, in which several points could be left ...

The return of Zidane after his absence due to his positive for coronavirus served for the players to start a period of reflection. The numerous casualties due to injury and the poor results, especially the defeat in Valdebebas against Levante, aroused the pride of the hard core of the dressing room, taking a step forward Courtois, Modric, Casemiro, Kroos, Varane and Benzema to explain to the rest of the team. group that excuses are over and that both Zidane and the fans deserved an extra effort to redirect a season that still has a fix. LaLiga is not lost mathematically and the Champions League is seven games away. By eliminating Atalanta, anything is possible ... 444 444The reaction of Barça has also served as a league motivation, which has gotten into the ointment of the title race when a month ago it seemed lost to the cause. "Losing the League to Atleti is not the same as losing it to Barça, whom we all considered dead at Christmas," a team player tells us, assuming that it is once again a League of three.

In addition, after the important victories against Huesca and Getafe, Zidane will begin to recover troops. Lucas Vázquez, Carvajal, Valverde and Rodrygo are on the last straight of recovering from their injuries and Kroos returns to Valencia after serving his penalty for cards against Bordalás. Madrid will begin to empty the infirmary as the European duel with Atalanta in Bergamo approaches (day 24). It already rains less for Valdebebas. In the dressing room she smiles again.

There are postponed matches

Before the derby on March 7, Barça will catch up by playing against Elche at the Camp Nou, in a postponed match on the first day of the League. And Atlético will play one of their two postponed games: next Wednesday, the 17th, in Orriols against Levante (from the second day) .
