Real Madrid fans around the globe are definitely growing tired of these meaningless La Liga games, and so are the players. Los Blancos host Almeria today a week ahead of the Copa del Rey Final against Osasuna, and this game will give Ancelotti another opportunity to make some rotations and take care of his squad.
It’s time for the Italian coach to start thinking about his Luka Modric replacement, as the Croatian is doubtful for the first leg of the Champions League Semifinals against Manchester City. Tchouameni, Ceballos and Camavinga are competing for that starting spot alongside Kroos and Valverde and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top after the next couple of games.
Almeria are trying to avoid relegation after what has been a very mediocre season for them so far, so they will try to take advantage of Madrid’s lack of interest in this game.
