The best teams in Spain, participants in the Champions League, are playing matches in the 12th round of the Primera today. The derby is being played at Sanchez Pishuan, where the wounded Real is playing against Sevilla(16.15).
Real Madrid made epochal successes with Zinedine Zidane on the bench, he also had crises, but such a crisis is not remembered. Whenever Zidane's team is playing badly and his stay in the club is in question, they would manage to connect several good results and put out the fire.
As it was recently when they beat Barcelona El Clásico. However, such a crisis has not been seen in the Zidane era. Real has only one victory in the last five matches, they were beaten by Shakhtar, Valencia, Alaves. The Madrid public believes that Real and the Frenchman have reached the end of the cycle and that change is necessary in order for the sleeping team to move.
Real Madrid vs Sevilla
Real is visiting Sevilla after a new slap from Shakhtar, which could cost them elimination from the group stage of the Champions League. For the first time in history. The team in Kyiv seemed idealess, futile, powerless.
The attack was harmless, the midfield was tired, the defense was disorganized. No changes and rotations help anymore, Zidane doesn't care who he sends to the field. Without Sergio Ramos, it is a team that does not have a leader, course, and plan.
And already this weekend, one of the most difficult possible guest appearances in Spain awaits them. Sevilla was beaten by Chelsea (0: 4) during the week in the match for the first place in the Champions League group. Lopetegui's team did not play as they can because two rounds before the end, they secured a place in the 1/16th finals of the elite competition of the Old Continent.
The host has three tied wins in the championship and is not under pressure like Real. For Zidane, this could be the last game on the Real bench. If they continue playing like this, Florentino Perez will have to listen to the pulse of the public and the fans and do something.
The name of Mauricio Pochetino hovered over Zidane's destiny like a shadow. The good news for Zidane is that French striker Karim Benzema has recovered from his injury. Although he is in his late playing years, an experienced player is still irreplaceable in the squad.
After the coronavirus, Luka Jović also recovered, but he is not in the competition for the match in Andalusia. Mariano Diaz, the striker who has replaced the Frenchman and the Serb in the last few games, has been injured and will not be able to play in Sevilla.
