It is not usual, but it is what it touches. The Real Madrid plays his first game of The league on Monday this season. The whites welcome the Real society at Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium to welcome the month of March after a February with full of triumphs in the domestic championship and the advantage taken in the Champions League before him Atalanta in the round of 16.
With the Derby waiting for sunday and a Athletic more leader after winning in the always complicated Ceramic Stadium to the Villarreal, Real Madrid has no choice but to win this Monday. But ahead he has a Real Sociedad that with players like Isaac Y Oyarzabal they will try to bring the three points of Di Stéfano back to Saint Sebastian.
The white-blue They arrive in the capital after winning three of the last four games they have played. In the memory is that 0-0 in the Royal Arena on matchday 2 of the championship, a match that enabled the meringues to make their debut in the league this season after postponing their match against the Getafe for European competitions.
Then he was headline a Odegaard that now plays in the Arsenal of Arteta. The Norwegian left during the winter transfer market, but Real Madrid has other casualties that have to do with the plague of injuries that the white team has hit in recent weeks. But there is good news. And is that Zidane recovers four players for the match against Real.
Odriozola, Marcelo, Faith Valverde Y Rodrygo They return to a Real Madrid squad. It is not expected that any of them will be present in the starting eleven, although the one who could have the most ballots is, precisely, the former Real Sociedad player. Odriozola is the only right-back available for Zidane, but everything indicates that the French coach will continue to bet on Lucas Vazquez in that position.
Of course, they continue to cause loss, in addition to Dani Carvajal, players as important as Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema, Eden Hazard, as well as Eder Militao. Some like the ‘9’ are expected in the Derby, perhaps that is why, for that vital duel for the title, Zinedine Zidane preferred not to call up the French striker for the duel this Monday.
Real Madrid have recovered that version that led them to win the title after the restart of the season last year. He has accumulated four games without conceding a goal, three in the League and the duel against Atalanta in the Champions League. A solidity that goes hand in hand with the goals to be able to have reduced the distance with Atleti and take a step forward towards the quarters in Europe.
But nothing is decided yet. Everything is at stake and in the white dressing room they know it. “They have left us alive”, they said in the dressing room last weekend and now it is the turn of not failing before the Derby as Barcelona and Atlético have done on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. To achieve a new victory, the big question in the merengue team is whether they will play Isco or Mariano.
Isco was in the game against Atalanta after he had to go back to elimination in the league to see his last start. Copa del Rey before him Alcoyano. The white ’22’ was more than correct in the Bergamo Stadium, but it seems that Mariano will be the starter against San Sebastian this Monday, which will be his ‘last’ chance before Benzema’s return.
The European search
Bailiff has been focused on the party for several days. In fact, in recent matches he has been rotating his players to reach Di Stéfano one hundred percent. However, the technician will not be able to count on Elustondo, nor with Zaldua, Gorosabel, Illarramendi Y Mikel Merino. But yes you can count on Norman, which was low in Europe, and which will be paired with Zubeldia.
Real Sociedad does not want to lose the European train and does consolidate its fifth position in the table with a victory against Zidane’s Real Madrid. His pursuers have been stomping and they do not want a stumble after knowing the result of their rivals for the place that leads to playing European competition next season. Without Mikel Merino, one of the best this course for them, the white-blue They haven’t had good performances, but they will have to make up for their absence if they want to achieve their goal.
