Both Real Madrid and Barcelona have failed to impress this season. Currently ranked fourth and seventh respectively, they have lost three league games each with less than a third of the season underway. Barca has already qualified early in the Champions League, but Real Madrid’s chances of reaching the Champions League after losing at home to Shakhtar Donetsk have faded. A loss away to Borussia Moenchengladbach would knock real out of the group stage.
Asked after the champions League defeat if he would resign, Zidane said he had not considered the circumstances of his departure. However, reports in Spain after the match suggested that real executives were already discussing the need for Zidane to remain in charge. In the eyes of many, Zidane’s grip on the dressing room is clearly at fault, with his players lacking the will to fight on the pitch, his doctrinaire rotation, and sluggish substitutions also contributing to Real’s recent underperformance. A number of club officials believe Zidane should have been replaced ahead of the crucial game against Moenchengladbach.
The day after the match, Real Madrid’s first team was photographed together for the 2020-2021 season. Both Zidane and Florentino were in the picture. According to Marca, Florentino spoke with Zidane about the team’s recent performance. Zinedine Zidane told Florentino that the team’s performance has been disappointing, but that he has a strategy in place and is confident that he will be able to re-energize the squad and aim for both the League and The Champions League. Zinedine Zidane still has the support of real’s core players, including captain Ramos and Modric, Marcelo, and others. Ramos also organized a dressing-room meeting for the players and told his team-mates they were one win away from a Champions League victory and they had to prove they were worthy of real’s shirt.
Real Madrid’s position at the top of the European table has slipped further as a result of their recent poor form. Real Madrid has slipped one place to fourth on 110 points in UEFA’s latest European league table for the past five years. Juventus are one point clear in third place. Bayern Munich (120 points) and Barcelona (116) remain in the top two spots. Behind Real are their city rivals Atletico Madrid on 108 points. Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, Sevilla, and Liverpool rounded out the top 10.
For Real Madrid’s current personnel allocation, especially in the midfield, with Modric, Cross aging, in order to continue to maintain the competitiveness of the top, the introduction of new forces is imminent. Real Madrid is battling Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Arsenal, and Red Bull Leipzig for midfielder Sobosloy, according to the players. Sobosloy, 20, currently plays for Red Bull Salzburg as a left midfielder and midfielder. As a young player who has just turned 20, Sobosloy has made 11 appearances for the Hungarian national team, scoring three goals. He has now become one of the most impressive new stars in European football.
