Real Madrid face Tottenham in the first game of the Audi Cup and Zidane’s men need to bounce back and play with a sense of urgency even though this is still a preseason game. Los Blancos completed an abysmal performance against Atletico de Madrid and lost 3-7, but the game was even worse than that final score.
Madrid must find some kind of momentum before the season kicks off. Tottenham will surely be a tough opponent for Zidane’s men, who need to prove that they are ready to compete for all three titles this season. All in all, players like Vinicius, Hazard, Benzema or Isco will be crucial this season and that’s why they need to start gaining some confidence.
Courtois, Bale, Mendy, Brahim, Jovic and Asensio will miss the game, and so will Casemiro, Militao and James, who started training this week after enjoying some extra days off because of their participation in the Copa America.
The time for Madrid to start turning things around is now.
