Frenchman Zinedine Zidane is at the helm of Spanish Giants and is all set to make his astonishing return with the first high-pressure match of Real Madrid against Celta Vigo in La Liga 2019 at grass Santiago Bernabeu. This match is a must-win for Spaniards as they have lost all of the past tournaments before. In this tournament Zidane will manage the squad after taking the reigns back from Lopetegui and Solari. Zidane return to the club after nine months.
One player who could benefit from Zidane’s comeback is Isco who also made his return to the team as he was thrown out by sacked Santiago Solari. Isco could possibly start the game and earn some redemption and his place in next year’s squad. Zidane old favorite players Vinicius, Carvajal and Lucas will not participate in the match as all of them are injured and their return could not be expected until May. While on the other side Celta will play without Iago Aspas who remains injured.
At this point,Real have to make sure that they stay in the top 4 for the rest of this season and make a comeback in the game. Earlier in La Liga, Real were 12 points behind their arch-rivals Barcelona and were knocked down in Copa del Rey. The club has recently signed Porto’s central defender Éder Gabriel Militão for the next six seasons.
