Zinedine Zidane he recovers important pieces of his team at a key moment of the season. The options of big titles are decided in games in which Real Madrid walks without a net for The league and he has his hopes pinned on his fetish competition, a Champions League in which important rivals such as Barcelona Y Juventus.
Trying not to lose focus with the imminent duel before him Atalanta Tuesday, but announcing tweaks to his team, Zidane recovers his captain and defensive reference, Sergio Ramos, and the key player in the entire offensive network who is contributing so little goal, Hazard. None have been competing since January. Too long to think of a return loaded with minutes, but in the need of rhythm.
Changes in the eleven
The defeats in the Of Stefano against rivals like Cadiz, Alaves Y I raised They are a warning for Real Madrid in a type of match similar to the one they will face Elche. If Ramos, with more ownership options, returns from the start, it would cause a change of position in Nacho Fernandez that could move to the side and allow Lucas Vazquez play in your natural position.
He must decide his offensive trident Zidane, who hesitates between continuity to a Marco Asensio who has chained seven games without scoring, starting Hazard or returning ownership to the Brazilian Vinicius after his good minutes in the Madrid derby of Metropolitan Wanda. The eight-point disadvantage with Atlético de Madrid forces them to meet the challenge of winning the three games that the Madrid team faces before the Spanish football classic against Elche, Celta de Vigo and Eibar.

The recent signing of the club, the Argentine, will not travel to Madrid either. Pablo Piatti, since Escribá prefers that he continue with his specific physical work to improve his physical condition after several months without competing. The main novelty is the recovery of the Colombian Johan mojica, who missed the last day due to muscular problems.
After the good image offered against Sevilla, everything indicates that the Elche coach will maintain the same alignment, with the only novelty being the presence of Mojica on the left side, although it cannot be ruled out that he sacrifices some of his forwards to strengthen the midfield.
