News | 09/02/2020 | Javier VázquezThe Whites want a fifth consecutive league win (4:00pm CET).
“We're facing a tough rival but we'll give it our all”, stated Zidane in the press conference. He has called on 19 players. They want three points to continue their best run in LaLiga so far this term.
To win, the side will have to show some defensive strength. The Whites have not conceded goals in five of the last six matches in LaLiga and have become the best defensive team in the league, with just 13 goals conceded. This means they have the best defensive record in Real Madrid history in the first 22 games.
Jagoba Arrasate's team are mid-table on 28 points. At home they have only lost twice and have taken points off rivals including Barcelona, Valencia and Sevilla. Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last five visits to El Sadar. The most recent clash was in February 2017 and they won 1-3.
