Real Madrid has been 21 games without knowing the defeat , in fact it does not reach the knee since the league duel of October 19 in Mallorca, in a match in which those of Chamartín still licked their wounds after the shaking that gave them the PSG in the Champions League (3-0), so it can be said that the Zidane team is at the best moment of the season . However to the Frenchman there is something that worries him and his head is around, and he does not want to see it appear in his players.
And the doubt arose when watching the match and result of Copa del Rey yesterday in Miranda de Ebro, where Mirandés , a Second Division team, pulled claw and courage not only to win a First Division and sneak into the semifinals of the KO competition, but they thrashed them and at times it was much higher during extensive phases of the match. For Zidane, Villarreal suffered for not being prepared for the challenge of the qualifiers.
It is clear that Real Madrid players are more accustomed to them than those of the Yellow Submarine , but Zizou has read the card to his players about two things: one, despite being leaders and not losing for months, they have not won nothing yet and every game means starting from scratch . He doesn't want relaxes. The second aspect is that any team in football today, no matter how small, can match a great pace and intensity and send it to the canvas.
And that for the French is unacceptable. Neither today nor ever. In addition to the notice sent by their coach, the merengues players are visited by a very fit team, with extraordinary players and who visit the Santiago Bernabéu with nothing to lose. La Real is not an individual this year. Zidane is especially cautious when he does not summon Casemiro , which is the case and little happens, and that is why he has issued a serious warning to the protagonists of this night. You have to run and want to win, that's the first thing. Moreover, he who does not do so will be sentenced to him. Mister intensity scandal.
