First duel of the season 2018/2019 between the Real Madrid and the Barcelona. The classic arrives in Barcelona on day 11 of The league. A duel that can mark a before and after in both clubs, but above all that could be final for a man: Julen Lopetegui. The Basque coach finds himself on a tightrope after the five-game unbeaten streak – which ended with the Viktoria Pilsen– and eight hours without seeing a door – which ended Marcelo against him I raised-.
Lopetegui is in the spotlight. There are many rumors that place him off the bench of the white team and has even begun to talk about their possible substitutes. Conte, Mourinho, Solari, Guti… In addition to other offers like Laudrup, Wenger or Lippi. Of all this list with which speculates is Antonio Conte the great favorite to relieve Julen. However, the Italian's option might not come to fruition due to the economic fringe of the technician with the Chelsea, thus becoming Santi Solari in the great alternative.
Training Real Madrid is a golden touch for any coach in the world, although the former national coach clings to the position and wants the game in the Camp Nou it is a turning point for the team and also for him at Concha Espina.
His appointment as successor of Zinedine Zidane, who decided to leave the Chamartín club only five days after the team raised The Thirteenth in Kiev -your third Champions consecutive-, led to an unfair dismissal as a technician of the Spanish selection by Rubiales just two days before the debut of the national team in the World Cup of Russia. Training Real Madrid is the biggest challenge for any coach and Madrid was won from the first minute by his statements and the injustice he experienced because of the president of the Real spanish soccer federation.
The locker room wants to save Lopetegui
There are many players of the white team who have raised their voices to be on the side of their coach. Since Toni Kroos to Isco, going through the captains Sergio Ramos Y Marcelo, each and every one of them have publicly declared that they trust Julen Lopetegui and that they expect him to continue with them. In particular, it was the defense of the attacking midfielder honey Creek the one that has marked a before and after with statements like: “If they throw the coach, they have to throw us all out. The players defend, attack … it's everyone's fault. “
The one of Asteasu It has become the best ally of footballers. Julen Lopetegui understands himself perfectly with his players and proof of this is that, for example, he has seen the best version of Dani Ceballos with the Basque on the bench. In addition, others like Bale they have felt supported and with the role they had wanted to acquire for so long in Real Madrid, while those who already knew him from the National Team feel protected and very much taken into account by the coach. Asensio and Isco Alarcón himself have gained weight in the team over the past few months.
The Camp Nou match will be the final exam for a Julen Lopetegui that could be stopped falling into the Blaugrana fief and, above all, if the team leaves a bad image as the view, for example, in the Sánchez Pizjuán against him Seville. In the worst possible scenario, the merengue coach plays being or not being. To his credit, his balance in direct duels against Ernesto Valverde -favorable to Lopetegui by 2-0- and, especially, that the Extremaduran will not be able to count on Messi, the best soccer player of the culés.
The great objective is to recover that version that the team showed, without going any further, against the Rome in the maximum continental competition at club level. The match against the Italian squad is the best match of Real Madrid so far this season, in the 'era Lopetegui' and it is that image that is wanted against Barcelona this Sunday. If this challenge is achieved, the Basque coach would be reinforced at the right time and would be placed just one point away from the eternal rival in the domestic championship standings. The Classic is called to mark a before and after for both teams but, above all, for a Julen Lopetegui who needs to catch his breath, move rumors and settle in the Santiago Bernabeu.
