There is a problem with the football at Real Madrid this season, particularly as Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have been misfiring badly.
Ronaldo and Benzema are trying and working hard but that isn’t a valid argument for them to retain their place in the side and be certain starters in this system again.
Their form is far from their best and in 14 LaLiga matches this season, they have just four goals between the two of them.
Of course, Gareth Bale’s injury has done a lot of damage in this regard, skewing all of the club’s best laid plans.
A special mention is also reserved for Zidane.
He waited until the 80th minute to go to his bench and, in his opinion, all the team was missing was a goal.
It may seem obvious, but if a goal hasn’t arrived by a certain point in the game, then an alternative route for finding it should be looked for – and he didn’t do so it until it was far too late.
The big problem is that those four goals from Ronaldo and Benzema have left Real Madrid in an extremely precarious position in the league.
