One of the bases of Real Madrid by Zinedine Zidane is the depth of workforce. The French coach always wants to have a wide and quality staff with the aim of being able to face all competitions with maximum guarantees. Something that will have to put into practice in the coming weeks, with the October slope that comes to the merengue team.
Although El Clasico, initially set to take place on Saturday, October 26, has been postponed to Wednesday, December 18 after the agreement between Real Madrid and Fútbol Club Barcelona, the whites return this week from the selection stop with a final stretch of first round high voltage
This Saturday Real Madrid returns to its usual dynamic of competition with the league visit of the Zidane to Son Moix. A match that will be used to measure the fitness status of the team after the busy FIFA window that has claimed casualties such as Gareth Bale or Luka Modric.
After this, the Champions League will arrive. Real Madrid have to travel to Turkey next week to play against Galatasaray which will be their third group stage match in the top continental competition. Whites play much more than three points, since after the punctures against PSG (3-0) and Bruges (2-2), the classification options depend on starting to chain victories.
This situation causes a new casting to start in Mallorca to give place to unusual players. Well important as Bale or Modric are vacant and internationals are more worn by the stoppage of selections, so the substitutes will have greater opportunities these days.
As if it were an elite combat formation, the 'unit B of Real Madrid, formed by men like James, Isco, Valverde, Mendy or Vinicius, among others, has been concentrated throughout the Valdebebas stop waiting to be able to intervene. They know that their perfect opportunity comes now, having been working at full capacity while many of their teammates played with their national teams.
Although there is a high probability that Zidane makes one of his usual revolutions in Mallorca and Istanbul, giving entry to unusual players along with titular theorists, there are two indisputable positions in which there will be changes. And it is that the injuries of Modric and Bale open two castings in the front and center of the field that need to be covered.
A priori, the favorites to occupy these positions are Fede Valverde, headline before the loss of the Croatian and that of Toni Kroos, and Vinicius Júnior (especially with the absence of Lucas Vázquez). Both players come in positive upward dynamics and could have their chance. However, it is also not ruled out that other midfielders such as James, Isco or even Brahim have prominence.
The 'unit B' has to show why it is in Real Madrid, with a view to its troops can start earning an important place in the team. Zidane has already reiterated in several that he has the 25 members of his staff. All things being equal, it is up to each one to have more or less presence.
This week will be a key moment to see what they are made of, since Madrid is coming up with a final stretch of the year that is full of games, with marathon work days and matches every three days.
