Zidane drops Courtois for first game back in charge — Real Madrid

  • Zidane drops Courtois, picks Isco and Bale

When these sides met earlier in the season, Los Blancos ran out 4-2 winners at the Abanca-Balaídos. Looks like it could be a two-man job with Modric and Kroos and Isco as a number 10. Subs: Ceballos, Valverde, Mariano.

Gareth Bale also makes the team, while out of favour left-back Marcelo is also included. However, talk of a move away was somewhat quashed when Zidane ended up departing instead.

Navas has been second choice for most of this season following Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois' arrival from Chelsea, while Sergio Reguilon had condemned a seemingly disinterested Marcelo to the bench towards the end of Santiago Solari's ill-fated tenure.

Zidane's first point of call was to call Ramos who was reportedly threatening to leave the club should Jose Mourinho be brought back as manager.

Despite the predicted lack of major transfer activity, Klopp still insists there is plenty of scope for his players to improve. On the space for further development, he continued: "It's massive".


"I do not want to discuss the individual season of Gareth Bale, but in these 11 remaining games I will count on him as I do with everyone, and like the others he is ready to play".

Isco was not even in the squad as Real capitulated at home to Ajax in the Champions League two weeks ago, but was beaming even ahead of kick-off as he started against Celta Vigo.

"Isco and Marcelo are both ready to play, they want to play and we will see them play", he said.

The performances of Bale, Isco and Marcelo in particular have left him with plenty to ponder, and Zidane can only hope that vigour will continue after the global break.
