Zidane can rescue the season by winningat least 1 major silverware
Real Madrid had to settle with a 1-1 draw against Real Betis as both sides faced off on January 24 and this result allowed Barcelona on having a bigger point’s advantage at the top of the Spanish League.
It’s still very early to predict who will be the winner of the Spanish League but it’s hard to deny the dominance that Barcelona has been displaying in every single match with Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez scoring goals consistently and almost effortlessly in certain games.
The Copa del Rey is a competition that Real Madrid have no chance of winning in this season as they were eliminated after fielding a player who was not eligible to play and now Zidane has to set his sights on the Spanish League and the Champions League.
This season has not been a memorable one for Real Madrid as they had to sack Rafael Benitez after a few disappointing results but one of the silver linings for the supporters of the Spanish club has been the appointment of ZinedineZidane as the new coach.
Zidane is an iconic figure for Real Madrid but now the pressure is on him to try and rescue what has been a mediocre season but in order to make this happen they will need to win a significantly important title or at least prove that they have what it .
One of the issues of Real Madrid right now is C.Ronaldo. As odd as that might sound, the Portuguese attacker has struggled scoring goals against big clubs in Europe as he has not scored against: Barcelona, Valencia, Villareal, Athletic Madrid and Sevilla.
In the Champions League, C.Ronaldo reached an outstanding accomplishment as he scored 11 goals in 6 matches of the European competition but none of those goals were scored against PSG, all of them arrived when facing off with Shakhtar Donetsk and Malmo.
