Real Madrid recovered from a bad start to get back into the title contest with five straight wins, but tonight’s draw with Elche puts Atlético in firm control at the top of the table.
The gap is only two points, but Atleti also have two games in hand, so they could run away with the league if they can put together a solid winning streak.
The biggest problem with Zidane’s team at the moment is their complete reliance on the older players who are still playing at a high level, but the intensive schedule will catch up with them and they always seem capable of losing points.
The reality is that they need to beat teams like Elche if they want to go ahead and win the title, so it will not surprise anyone to see an angry crowd at the final whistle tonight with Zidane’s team selection and the choice of alternates in common. complain:
We needed a winning goal and Zidane didn’t even use either substitute forwards. Lmao.

I knew that even before the game started we would drop points.
Because Marcelo started over.
When will Zidane find out that Marcelo is finished?

An embarrassing result, Benzema was wrong! 3+ chances to score with the head, the man did not even make contact with the ball !!!
He probably didn’t have a chance the whole game?… Jovic should have playing time, Zidane makes late substitutions, too late!
Modric is the only spark in the attack! ??

The whole team covers Marcelo
But Zidane loves him so he’s going to play even if it means we lose points

The team needs several new faces and investments in the summer, but Zidane has never been good at developing younger players – he relies on the same players to drag him down, so it makes you wonder if he could leave in the summer like he is. see the club. reform the entire coaching and playing staff.
