Zidane faces an April storm

17 Mar 2017

For the neutral Real Madrid observer, April looks appetising; for Zidane and co. it is going to stretch their resources to the maximum.

The month of April sees Los Blancos face up against neighbours Atlético in the derby, Bayern Munich, under the stewardship of ex-Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, twice in the Champions League and La Liga title rivals Barcelona, all within the space of 15 days. That period also includes a trip to Sporting Gijón in the league, who’ll likely still be fighting for survival.

Can Zidane use the depth in his squad to deal with the shower of fixtures that April brings? If he can navigate through this intense storm that faces him, May could well reveal a silver light for the Frenchman.
