Real Madrid need to bounce back after they lost 2 games in a row. After an unprecedented run in the history of Spanish football Real Madrid are in a bit of jam here but playing home to Malaga should get them back to winning ways.
The leagues still looks to be in control of Real Madrid as they still are the league leaders with a game in hand but one more bad result now will make things more interesting for the neutral and more tense for the Madridista’s.
Zidane has focused all his attention for Laliga this season as Real Madrid look for their first League title in 5 years.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla all have comparatively easy matches this match day and so none of them cant afford to drop points and Real Madrid must keep their concentration to avoid any more blips in their form.
Zidane in his pre-match presser said
“We are going through a difficult moment in general. We have only lost two games and will not be changing anything. People are always going to talk when we lose and we have to accept that. We need to keep plugging away and turn this around. Perhaps we had to lose those two games whilst in a good moment in order for us to get back on track with things and start winning, get our confidence back and keep chipping away”.
Zizou also defended Crsitiano and said he is a game changer.
He is doing well and will always be a game changer for us. It is vital for us to keep up the hard graft out on the pitch. He always, always wins. The problems arise when he doesn’t score because we are used to him being the sole player to make the difference.
January has not been the best of months for Cristiano he averages about 0.6 goals per game in Januray.
Injuries have also been a problem again this season as Bale, James and Pepe are still unavailable. Regarding James the Real Madrid boss said
“He still has a few problems, but hopefully he will be back with us by Monday.
