Madrid sports newspapers put their focus today on Real Madrid’s arrival to Doha, where they will face Paris Saint-Germain this afternoon in a friendly match.
“Real travel to Doha without Gareth Bale,” titles As, pointing out the players “were acclaimed at their arrival.”
Marca’s headline is “Magicians in the East,” claiming “the duel between Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a gift of the Three Kings in Qatar.”
“Bale stayed in Madrid and could make his return against Celta,” the Madrid daily highlights. “He’s been sidelined since December 17th due to a knock in his calf muscle,” As reports.
“Iker Casillas, who is about to become a father, didn’t travel either,” Marca adds.
As emphasizes the match will see “the two top goal scorers of 2013.” Cristiano Ronaldo scored 69 goals last year, while Ibrahimovic netted 47.
