Real MadridTOThe Whites seek to win this season five consecutive games for the first time
Sopens the teln and appears to the Alavs. It's not a joke It is a team that is fifth in the league, which already beat Real Madrid in the first round and which is the starting signal for the crucial month that Real Madrid will live. Just within a month, they will receive the targets in the Bernabu to Barcelona in League.That day, Madrid may already be in the Champions quarters,in the final of the Cup after leaving in the ditch to the same Bara and who knows if with options to dispute the League to the team of Ernesto Valverde, now to ten points, if it is capable of winning the eternal rival. That may be the scenario or who knows if Madrid is closing the season's teln sooner than expected, hence the importance of this coming February.
Madrid therefore need to think about the Alavs but without neglecting what is coming. Solari start with both the rotations. Some forced, by the casualties of Varane and Carvajal by sanction, but there are players who add many matches in a row and who may have some respite.Bien Vincius or Benzema himself could be on the bench now that Bale has returned, which is shaping up as a starter,or the own Asensio, that already gave samples before the Girona that wants to gain the position in his return.
Because Madrid plays in the Bernabu but the next three matches are away from home and against Barcelona, Atltico and Ajax. A vertigo calendar that forces the coach to move the bench. Although Madrid refuses to throw the League, it is strange that no one of the fixed ones rests tonight with what he expects later. Modric returns after his last rest, but Kroos or Casemiro can leave his position to players like Llorente or Ceballos.
Madrid feels strong now that curves are coming. Apart from having recovered all its troops except Vallejo, the results and the game say that this Madrid that is measured at Bara within four days has nothing to do with the one that tookSolari after signing Lopetegui his sentence in the win at the Camp Nou (5-1). In fact, to win the Alavs today the whites will sign their fifth straight victory, something that has not happened for almost a year, since Zidane sum five consecutive wins: Getafe, PSG, Eibar, Girona, Las Palmas and Juventus. First Lopetegui and then Solari reached the four consecutive, so the Argentine can improve his streak.
The Alavs, on the other hand, is planted in the Santiago Bernabu after a week in which it has been more focused on closing the winter market than in the preparations to measure against those of Solari.The cataract of operations that caused the transfer of Rubn Sobrino to Valencia has misled the Albiazules and has evaded them from the sporting aspects until the day of Friday. The balance of the trading souk leaves Alavs weaker after this period of purchases and sales. In the month of January has lost two players relevant to Abelardo as Ibai Gmez and Sobrino himself in return, that s, of almost eight million euros that reach the coffers albiazules.
Beyond these movements, the Alavs appear on stageReal Madrid after two setbacks at the start of the second round, against Getafe and Rayo Vallecano. To all this is added the draw in Girona, 1-1, in the last match of the first round for a balance of one point of the last nine in play.
It is not, in addition,Madrid the best opponent to cut this streak and think about retaking the path of triumph. Recover for Abelardo tonightto Pina for the creation.
To be in the plot of the center of the field where present the novelty of putting together a trivot,with which to try to short-circuit and hinder the actions of Solari players. Jony who returns in the attack after three weeks of loss.
The Alavs hurried to the end in the transfer market to complete their squad for the end of LaLiga. Abelardo decided yesterday to put on the listlex Blanco and Diego Rolan. To the bus with which the Vitorian team traveledMadrid did not go up Sivera, which makes the substitute goalkeeper is Domxuez, goalkeeper of the subsidiary. To the list of casualties for the clash against Real Madrid Martin Aguirregabiria is added to the last minute.
