The Real Madrid continues to give the last throes in the stage of Montreal (Canada), before starting the 'Tourmalet' of the preseason. The whites will start this weekend the short list of friendly matches that await them this summer. The International Champions Cup will be the first of the two summer tournaments that Zidane will have to face before the official start of the 2019/2020 academic year.
The Bayern Munich will be the rival with which the whites will make their debut in Houston (United States). It will be during the early hours of Saturday to Sunday, July 21 (2:00 am). A match that will serve Zidane to test the first results and feelings of the work that the team has done since the start of the preseason on Monday, July 8.
The friendlies play an important role in the Zidane road map to prepare the squad optimally for what will be coming up in August. Real Madrid must reach the start of the league against Celta de Vigo (August 18) in perfect conditions, since it will be key to start the championship getting a good result in the debut.
Real Madrid rivals await him during this preseason. And it is that in addition to the Bavarian set, the Arsenal of Unai Emery, the Atletico de Simeone or the Tottenham of Pochettino will be other of the adversaries that will be the white set during the tours of the United States and Germany (Audi Cup).
Zidane wants to use the friendly matches to analyze in depth the team, identifying possible best and strengthening the strengths of its players. For this, its technical staff and all the infrastructure of Real Madrid will be at your disposal. Physical trainers such as Dupont or advanced teams of analysts, are in the daily routine of whites. However, the football vision of 'Zizou' is what will always mark the path.
During the friendlies that the team will have to play this summer, Zidane will have to get to know what the badges of his team will be. The possession, the verticality and the game by bands have been strengths of Real Madrid with which the Frenchman won in Europe. Now he has a different squad from two years ago and will have to figure out what are the strengths of his players.
Perhaps one of the most important points of Zidane's planning for matches is the detection of the shortcomings and weaknesses of his team. As with the strengths, this will be key to the success of the new project. French must be able to identify the problems of its staff to correct errors or minimize them to the maximum.
This summer the Real Madrid has incorporated five players like Mendy, Militao, Hazard, Rodrygo and Jovic facing the next course. In addition, the club has released many players. Two factors that make Zidane have to prove in a real game, against important rivals, the new players to know them in depth.
Future of players
Although during the week Zidane watches all the training closely, the players with the future in the air will have to know how to take advantage of the matches to continue in the club. The friendlies will be the test of fire for some players and the Frenchman will have to put to the limit any doubts he may have.
The last and perhaps most important point of the Zidane roadmap for the preseason games is the experimentation on the pitch. The technician must try different combinations of players, onces and systems. In addition, the French must implement their style of play against important rivals and get their players acquire automatisms among their peers on the field.
