On this episode of the Managing Madrid Podcast, Kiyan and Om discussed:

  • The hot topic that is Isco's free-role: Issues, difference between this season's scheme and last season's, potential benefits, and the dangerous dominoes
  • Real Madrid's struggle in creating chances
  • Benzema and Ronaldo: xGs, isolations, having to drop deep, disconnected as a duo, not receiving the ball in areas where they can thrive
  • What would Gareth Bale solve once he returns?
  • De Gea / Kepa
  • All the reasons why Real Madrid have not looked like themselves (no spoilers in this bullet point. You'll have to listen to the pod)
  • Raul Garcia smh
  • Schematic solutions: Tinkering with different formations, fresh ideas, and better substitutional patterns
  • A ton more
