Injury of Eden Hazard at Real Madrid vs. Levante by LaLiga Santander (02/22/2020)
Madrid has made great progress since its disastrous first campaign without Ronaldo, with Zinedine Zidane reinforcing the defense and creating a very functional midfield since he resumed the reins of the team last March. The Zidane team has the best defense in Spain, having received only 17 goals in 25 games, but that advantage has been neutralized by an attack that adds 16 goals less than the league leader, Barcelona.

The problems in attack are well reflected in their ranking of scorers. Karim Benzema tops the list with 13 goals and Ramos appears second with five goals, followed by the containment midfielder Casemiro, who has three. Eden Hazard was seen as Ronaldo’s heir when he joined Chelsea last year for 100 million euros, but injuries have only allowed him to play 15 games with Madrid, in which he scored a goal.

Praise of Zidane for Guardiola

Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid coach, repeated praise to Pep Guardiola, an eternal rival of Real Madrid, who said he “has always shown” that he is the best coach in the world, and thanked him for the two days they shared when he trained to lead after leaving football.

“He has always shown that he is the best, first in Barcelona, ​​then in Bayern and now in Manchester he has shown it. It is my opinion. There are people who think that the best is another, there are many coaches but for me it is him, ”he told a press conference before the game against City, in the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League.

Zidane stressed that the match measures Real Madrid with Manchester City and is not a pulse between him and Guardiola. “The reality is that it is a Madrid against City alone, there is no Guardiola Zidane. You can talk about that but in the end it is a nice game that people want to see between the two teams. We are happy because we always want to play these games and ready to make a great game. ” he claimed.

The French coach recalled the time he shared with Guardiola when he directed Bayern Munich and he visited prestigious technicians in his training: “He gave me many tips and many talks. He has been very sincere with us in the two days we spent there. I’m not going to tell what I can recover from what he told me but it was very interesting. ”

“Obviously we get inspired by what he did and motivate us more. We are not worried or afraid to play against Guardiola, I spent a few days with him when I was at Bayern talking about training, how to manage a team and he was very sincere, very open and I learned many things from him, ”he said.
