2. Defenders are not consistent
If you try to watch their games you’ll see gaps opening up the midfield, a wobbly backline, naive full-backs bombing forward. Even center-backs gallop into the attack at times.
When Girona can score two and also hit the woodwork twice, it’s clear that Madrid are struggling at the back.
1. Toothless strikers
Real Madrid frontline has scored 32 goals so far, while league leaders Barcelona have 48 goals so far. Cristiano Ronaldo, suspended for the first four games, has scored 4 goals in 13 league appearances.
In bad times, it’s always tempting to blame the defending. Madrid have kept just seven clean sheets.
Sincerely speaking, Zinedine Zidane side need at least one striker, one winger and one attacking midfielder behind the striker.
