The Real Madrid faces the decisive stretch of the season and does so as champion of the Spain Supercup and already eliminated from the fight of the Copa del Rey. The white club, with the goal of the triplet in mind with LaLiga and the Champions League, is very much alive in both competitions and Zinedine Zidaneat the expense of Asensio, you have all the template available (James and Mariano they will return to the group immediately).
The French coach, as he has been doing since he arrived, can do and undo at will, especially now when the injuries give the team a break. The Madrid they go with everything before him Barcelona, which leads three points, for the league championship and against Manchester City in the round of 16 of the maximum continental competition.
So, Zizou You must bet on the players in whom you are most confident and those who are best at all times and there are some untouchables, so the rotations will be minimal until the end of the season. Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Mendy They are indisputable in defense. The Madrid has barely received four goals with the five players at once on the field in 1,041 minutes.
Ahead and as one more defender, Casemiro He will continue to be the “firefighter” of Madrid. It does not have a natural replacement in the template and you have to play it all, as well as Benzema. The ‘9’ Frenchman, with Jovic relegated to the background and with Mariano forgotten ’, is very important and is the one who assumes the scoring responsibility.

From there, Valverde, Kroos, Modric and Isco they will be who can accompany the Brazilian in the core. The Uruguayan and the German leave with advantage, but the Croatian, more dosed this course by Zidane, is signing a large stretch lately and Malaga, which comes from being the best in The Sadar, is catching more and more gallons.
At the point of attack, Benzema is untouchable and Hazard, once it reappears and picks up, it will be too. So, Vinicius He will return from the bench, but as a great secondary actor because the Belgian will not play everything to prevent a new injury. Players like Bale, Lucas Vázquez and Rodrygo are waiting, while others like Areola, Militao, Nacho, Marcelo, James or Brahim They will have minutes counted.
