Madrid's loss highlights team's main issue

Real Madrid's loss to Valencia highlights team's main issue for Zizou to solve

April 3, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
Goncalo Guedes and Ezequiel Garay scored for Los Naranjeros to hand Los Blancos their first loss under the French boss in his new spell.

It took Zinedine Zidane nine games to lose his first match at Real Madrid during his first stint. Now, it has taken only three. 

Seems that the French boss was right when he stated that the team needed some changes to keep winning, as the same players that earned him three UEFA Champions League titles seem to be a bit tired.

That fact comes to light when you look at their numbers this season. Only the last-placed in La Liga has conceded more goals than Los Blancos, as these numbers show.

Zidane decided to give a starting nod to Marcelo over Sergio Reguilón, a player that has performed his defensive duties in better fashion than the Brazilian this year.

Furthermore, Keylor Navas was blamed by some for his poor reaction that led to Valencia's opening goal.

The last nail on the coffin came when Casemiro failed to defend a corner kick, which was headed into the back of the net by Ezequiel Garay. All three players have been criticized for their performances in key games this season.

Maybe it's just a coincidence, or maybe Zizou should really begin to draw out some conclusions on where his team needs a tweak or two.
