Real Madrid passed its first major exam with an early end tint. The team trained by Zidane beat in Seville leaving very good feelings and starting a streak that should be extended for several more games. Especially for the next two, where the Chamartín team is risking their lives in the Champions League and their credibility in the domestic competition against him. Atlético de Madrid.
Beyond the last victory in the Sánchez Pizjuán, Zidane adds new and good news that affects his staff. The injuries, physical downturns and absences that had been so bad for the coach’s planning have mostly disappeared. The French, in fact, will have up five ‘signings’ for this marathon of finals in which the merengue ensemble cannot fail.
From the defensive line, where the French coach recovers Sergio Ramos and has a Mendy in top form, to the center of the field with the great level shown by Casemiro and the recent return to training Faith Valverde, and without forgetting the front where Vinicius, which has many times been questioned, has once again confirmed that he must enjoy minutes to give another rhythm to the offensive meringues.
The most important name of Real Madrid is Sergio Ramos. The merengue captain was injured during the national team break with Spain. And what was to be a simple muscle problem lasted over time. The camero did not want to risk and Zidane, as he explained himself, neither. He missed the La Liga and Champions League duels. However, the absence in Seville was the definitive one. Ramos arrives in top physical shape for the two finals against Borussia and Atlético. Two duels where his leadership in defense, and also in the dressing room, will be decisive.
The other reinforcement on the defensive line is Mendy’s. The French side has convinced the club and Zidane. It came as a bet from the coach and has taken ownership from Marcelo. Mendy performs at a high level and his physical power can contribute a lot to the white team, even more so in appointments like those that await the team soon. Against Sevilla he was one of the best of Real Madrid and of the three games he has not played, the capital’s team has only added one victory to two defeats.
Options on the wall
The midfield also has two good news for Zidane. Casemiro is one of them. The Brazilian will be at full capacity before Borussia and Atlético de Madrid and ensures the center of the field. Their presence in this area is essential, especially for the balance of Real Madrid and to give oxygen to the trident teammates, usually Kroos or Modric. Without him, Zidane’s team has only played three games and in none of them was victory achieved.
The last, and perhaps more hopeful, is that of Fede Valverde. The Uruguayan is one of the French coach’s bets. Both for his performance and for his abilities to cover different positions on the field, the young player is back after his injury before the national team break. In the last session he already stepped on the grass and, although it is not very likely that he will be against Borussia, his presence in the derby is the objective. Before the physical problems, Fede had played everything in the Champions League and never ran out of minutes in La Liga.
Vinicius, on a roll
The Brazilian forward scored against Sevilla. At least that’s how he saw it. The reality is that it was decisive in the goal play and, although it was finally taken into account as an own goal for the Seville club, Vinicius claimed that it was his doing.
Against Borussia he will be able to bring speed and intensity in attack. They are two of its main characteristics. Taking into account that he has several games without scoring, the desire to see the door and face will be greater. Against Atlético de Madrid, Vinicius would have another opportunity to claim. He was already a starter in the triumph of Camp Nou and it would be no surprise to see him again from the start.
