    Real Madrid have issues. There’s a huge amount of individual quality in the squad which is often enough to get them out of a hole in La Liga, but against top European opposition, the lack of a plan that plays to their strengths and defensive weaknesses in positioning and pressing will be problematic. Zidane has a tactical struggle on his hands to get things right.

    Maybe zidane must use formation 4-1-2-3 or 3-5-2. Thats formation its good to use attacking fullback. If he use 4-4-2 or 4-3-3 they cant use attacking fullback.

    What if you predicted forward how a team will be balanced or successful, rather than having a conclusion already established by their form and then using that to justify your insight... if they were playing well this ‘analysis’ would describe the team as ‘perfectly balanced’ and Zidane’s tactical play would be a stroke of genius.

    Convert Kroos to a 6 "à la Pilro", put Casemiro as central midfielder and you solve your Problems ZZ.

    • Benoît SAUVETON
      Benoît SAUVETON Month ago

      @Timbone the goal is to have Modric as a double pivot taking the offensive role and Casemiro for defensive role in the middle. While the position of Kroos as 6 allow more pressing in defensive phase. In offensive phase Casemiro stay behind to win second balls with Kroos to convert them. (sorry for bad english)

    • Timbone
      Timbone Month ago

      I dont think Casemiro has the pace to run around the pitch like Kante
      Playing with a number 10 who enters the box to score will also solve their problem
      That is why their Diamond formation worked very well

    Bale is being treated appallingly.
    Rodriguez is a one season wonder.
    Benzema is not a world class striker and never has been.
    Kroos is criminally overrated.
    Pepe is gone.
    Modric is over the hill.
    Ronaldo carried r.m for years and now they're fucked.

    so realistically then, if Zidane fails to turn around this madrid team we can safely say that he is not a tactican and could not replicate the success he achieved with madrid with any other European super team??

    Hey Zidane, if you're reading this, why not try a 4-2-3-1, Hazard playing just behind Benzema and Casemiro and Modric as a pivot, good luck bud!

    The main problem is (as you said) They lost a natural leader, Ronaldo
    He was the main player in the squad, his personality demanded that, before his skill
    When you take out, with no clear leader, everyone gets lost.. and this is exactly what Madrid looks like.. LOST!
    Either Bale/Benzema rise up to the challenge or wait for a leader to join
    Hazard will never be a leader, he doesn't have the mentality or personality to lead.. Although he's a brilliant player

  • ZeidGho
    ZeidGho 2 months ago +1

    They still play as if Ronaldo is still there collecting the crosses over every defender

    You can't do that with sack of shit Benzema or Hazard
    You can't depend on crossing anymore

  • Suryakant Panda
    Suryakant Panda 2 months ago

    I don’t know, correct me if I’m wrong , when Ronaldo was there,they played the front 3 as bale Ronaldo benzema with Ronaldo as the central striker now they have given this role to benezema he has played 9 years as a winger ,a awesome 😎 winger so why change now???? Jovíc can’t play as a winger give him the central role and they could play as benzema jovíc and bale and Hazard could play as a attacking midfielder creating chances!!! And modric and Casemiro could be in a more defensive role!!!
