Madrid Press: Los Blancos can claim top spot for first time this season


Real Madrid take on Granada at home this afternoon and today’s Marca goes with the headline “Dream Land” on its front page, as a win for Los Blancos would take them top of the table – the first time in 20 months.

Madrid go into the match on the back of 11 successive victories and six clean sheets in a row, so will be confident of taking the three points. Manager Carlo Ancelotti warn of complacency at his press conference though, and urged his players to be switched on for the entire 90 minutes.

Both Marca and AS also have coverage of comments made by Zinedine Zidane, Ancelotti’s assistant at the Santiago Bernabeu. The World Cup winner with France in 1998 said he is ready to be a manager, and although he feels he still has a lot left to offer Ancelotti, he would like to become a boss sooner rather than later as it is “in his blood”.

Indeed, Ancelotti praised the work done by Zidane since they started working together last summer. “The work of Zidane is also important, because he has a lot of charisma and speaks with the midfielders and strikers. He also does important work with the younsters. But I think the head coach is doing a good job too,” he said.
