3 problems Zidane must solve before confronting Manchester City

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has had many experiences against Celta Vigo, played with Marcelo and Mendy together at the end of the game, introduced Eden Hazard from the start, gave Gareth Bale a new chance and tried to relieve Toni Kroos.

Some of these experiences cannot be repeated, the most important of which is the attempt to bring Gareth Bale back to normal and he does not basically want to return, as well as Zidane's substitutions cost the team two precious points on the way to the title, but away from the experiences, what should Zidane change before facing Manchester City.

Varane - Carvajal

Real Madrid should not underestimate Manchester City, although the team is going through a bad period administratively and a major technical flop, but it may be an additional incentive for him, and one of the problems that Real Madrid must solve is one of Manchester City's strengths: moving in the halves.

Between Varane and Carvajal is a space that opponents always find to penetrate and receive the ball, a problem that Zidane must solve by securing protection from the center of the duo on the one hand and by the convergence between the heart of the defense and the back on the other, otherwise Manchester City will take advantage of it heavily.

Real Madrid results at the Bernabéu

In the Champions League Real Madrid are usually a different team, with a different presence, but this season the team is clearly suffering. Real Madrid played 16 matches at home, winning 9, drawing 6 and losing one, while playing 17 away from home, winning 11, drawing 4 and losing 2. Real Madrid has won 52% of the game at home and therefore need to improve this image when they face Manchester City in the Champions League.

100% Hazard recovery

One of Zidane's positive decisions is to involve Hazard for 70 minutes, obviously, the number 7 has not reached the top of his game, but Hazard is one of the players who appear on the big dates and what is important here is that he knows the Premier League well. Zidane needs to avoid hazard's injury and gradually regain it before facing Manchester City in the Champions League.
