Real Madrid visit Huesca’s El Alcoraz with only 17 players available, three of which are goalkeepers and two more being Castilla players Chust and Marvin. While Madrid’s predicted lineup is solid enough, coach Zinedine Zidane simply won’t be able to rely much on his bench if the starters can’t get the job done.
Los Blancos completed a solid performance against Alaves two weeks ago, earning a convincing 1-4 win. Still, they took more than one step backwards with their surprising loss to Levante last weekend, which placed them 10 points behind Atletico de Madrid with one more game at hand for Simeone’s side.
All things considered, Real Madrid’s race for the Liga title is all but over, no matter what coach Zidane actually says in his press conferences. Still, it’s important for Madrid to compete week in and week out as they try to gain momentum and confidence for the Champions League.
