Real Madrid’s away match against Elche is the last game of 2020 for Los Blancos. Zinedine Zidane and his men found a way to bounce back from their disappointing start to the 2020-2021 season and have earned six consecutive wins, featuring statement victories against Sevilla or Atletico de Madrid in the process.
It’s now time for Madrid to keep that winning streak going, as they will need to do so if they want to overcome Atletico de Madrid’s lead in the table. Simeone has built a very consistent squad this season, so Real must find that consistency as well.
Elche have struggled this season, so this is another good opportunity for Madrid to get the three points. Zidane could also manage his roster and he plans to give Eden Hazard some minutes tonight as well. While the players have had some days off and should be fresh, the schedule is going to get very busy for Madrid this January, so Zidane will likely have to trust his bench sooner or later.
