In La Liga, next weekend the first round of the new year and the 17th will take place in the current season. We will be playing with the match between Real Madrid and FC Granada, which will be kicked off at 13:00 at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu next Saturday. The Royal are still undefeated this season and are right at the Tabellenspitze. For this to remain so, coach Zinédine Zidane has certainly also a victory against Granada. With that, Granada’s coach Lucas Alcaraz, who will try not to go down with his team and possibly take some countable things, will certainly be expecting this too.
Formcheck Real Madrid
The Royal side are on the Tabellenspitze with a three-point lead over FC Barcelona on the 16th day and are still missing a game against Valencia. From the last five games, the Zidane team collected a total of 13 points. Only in El Classico were there against Barcelona a just 1: 1 draw. Real completed the last game on 10 December 2016 against Deportivo La Coruña. In an exciting game, Madrid had to take a 1: 2 lead before Mariano Diaz equalized and Sergio Ramos with the final whistle (3: 2). On the 16th day Madrid set out as the FIFA Club World Cup started. After winning the semi-final of the FIFA Club World Cup against the Mexican team Club America 2-0, the final went into the final. In the end, Cristiano Ronaldo decided the game almost in the beginning. Having scored 2-2 in the meantime in the regular season, he scored two goals to the 4: 2 final in stoppage time.
Also in the new year, Real already ran. In the Copa del Rey, the Zidane team won the first leg against Sevilla with 3-0, despite some notable failures (including Cristiano Ronaldo). In the upcoming match against FC Granada, Zidane will continue to forgo some injured players. Sergio Ramos, Mateo Kovačić, Lucas and Gareth Bale are expected to be missing. Cristiano Ronaldo, who paused against Sevilla FC, will be back on the road to Granada, according to Zidane.
