Entering the last week of preparation before the return of LaLiga, Zinedine Zidane begins to build a “new” Real Madrid, mainly in attack, problematic position in the club this season. In an activity held at the Alfredo di Stéfano Stadium, the Frenchman mixed holders and reserves and indicated a possible trio of attackers.
The stoppage of football allowed two players to recover from injuries and remain at the disposal of the French coach: Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard. Both athletes would miss the season if they followed normally, but they can return this Sunday, against Eibar.
And exactly Asensio and Hazard who were the attacking trio together with Karim Benzema in the starting lineup. The attack by the reserves was formed by Vinícius Júnior, Rodrygo and Brahim Díaz. Other players like Bale, who may return to the Premier League, Mariano and Jovic, involved in yet another controversy, were not available.
But it is not possible to be 100% sure that these players will be starting as Zidane has mixed reserves and players in the activity. A team was formed by Courtois, Carvajal, Varane, Nacho, Mendy, Kroos, Modric, James Rodríguez, Marco Asensio, Hazard and Benzema. The other team had: Areola, Lucas Vázquez, Sergio Ramos, Militão, Marcelo, Casemiro, Fede Valverde, Isco, Rodrygo, Vinícius and Brahim Díaz.
