Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has said the frantic end to the La Liga season – with matches being played every three days – is like a World Cup tournament, and that suits the big-game experience of his squad.
Zidane knows what it takes to win and lose – a World Cup as a player after France’s triumph in 1998 and disappointment in 2006 final where he was sent off in his last match as a professional.
As a manager, he won three consecutive Champions League trophies in 2016, 2017 and 2018 with many of the same Madrid players – Sergio Ramos, Casemiro, Luka Modric and Karim Benzema, who are key squad members now.
Real Madrid will play 11 league games in just over a month as they look to chase down leaders Barcelona, who are two points clear before their return to action on Saturday night.
“It is not a lot or a little,” Zidane – Real Madrid Boss added. “It is the situation. We have 11 finals and we’ll try to give everything to win this league.”
After Sunday’s game against Eibar, Madrid will host Valencia on Thursday and then travel to Real Sociedad next weekend.
Madrid’s title hopes have been boosted by the return to fitness of Eden Hazard who has struggled with injuries since signing for €100 million last summer and Marco Asensio, who has missed the entire campaign.
