Six possible rivals and only one of them will be measured against those of Solari in the second round of the Champions League. This Monday, the Real Madrid will know from Abu Dhabi, where you are already concentrated to dispute the Club World Cup over the next few days, which team will face in the next round of the maximum continental competition, in which several proper names put the morbid.
One of the pairings that would be the most talked about would be the one that faced the current champion of Europe with the Manchester United. This is especially true for a man: Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese coach left a big mark on the white house. An entire earthquake, the character of the Luso fell in love with a part of Real Madrid, while another sector did not accept the forms of The Special One. In addition, in the last few months it has even been possible to speculate, with a possible return of the Setúbal to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Another of these proper names is that of Marcus Rashford. The young English striker is one of the players with more future on the British scene, although he is not having all the opportunities that a player with his projection is presumed to have. The Red Devil himself has been placed in the orbit of the merengue team since his breakthrough in the football scene, being compared on several occasions with Marco Asensio, one of the last pearls out of Spanish football.
The last time United and Madrid saw each other on a pitch was with Mourinho as coach of the red devils. In the summer of 2017, both teams measured their strength in the International Champions Cup and also at the end of the European Super Cup, title that went to the meringues showcases thanks to the goals of Casemiro and Isco.
The London team already knows what it is to face Real Madrid in the race for 'The Orejona' Last season, in 2017/2018, the faces were seen in the group stage, a group stage from which the winners came spurs to get imposed, especially after that game in Wembley in which they won 3-0, and pass as first group at that time. Now, the team led by Pochettino It does not go through its best moment.
Precisely it would be about the Argentine coach that would focus part of the spotlight, since his name has been closely linked with the club of Concha Espina both after the departure of Zidane as after the dismissal of Julen Lopetegui. Other names to keep in mind are those of Harry Kane Y Eriksen. Both are players who are rumored to become new members of the Madrid team in the next transfer windows.
Also this confrontation could mean a reunion since Luka modric Y Gareth Bale began to emerge in the ranks of the Tottenham. The negotiations between the London squad and Real Madrid were quite complicated and both closed practically on the horn of the transfer market of the summer period. However, the two players put all the meat on the grill to finish wearing the white elastic.
Those of Jürgen Klopp They want revenge. Last May, the Liverpool and Real Madrid met in the final of the last edition of the Champions League. Bale, twice, and Karim Benzema They gave victory to the meringues. Thus, the Spanish team won its third consecutive 'Orejona' and the fourth in the last five years. Since then, a campaign against the Sergio Ramos after his fortuitous haul with Mohamed Salah, in which the Egyptian ended up injured by bad luck.
The striker was the great sensation of last season in the Premier League. So much so that it has even been among the final candidates for the individual grand prizes this year. But, in addition, the African footballer has also sounded as a possible reinforcement for Real Madrid. Although these speculations have been losing weight over time and especially after everything happened with the captain merengue.
The French team is another of the possible rivals of the current champions who put a dose of curiosity to the draw of eighths of the maximum continental competition. The Olympique Lyon has seen the faces with Real Madrid in the Champions League on up to ten occasions with a balance of three wins for each side and four draws. It could be the return home of Karim Benzema, but also the return of Mariano Díaz to the stadium where he played like crazy the previous season.
In addition, there is also a proper name in relation to the transfer market. Fekir has been linked to the white club since last season and even went so far as to assure that Zinedine Zidane had him closed from having continued at the controls of the Merengue ship.
