Los Blancos are living a good start of the season so far. Real Madrid have only played four games so far but everything looks perfect at Valdebebas. The first friendly games of the season gave hope to all Real Madrid supporters because the team performed really well and was able to beat big clubs like Chelsea or Bayern Munich even without the stars.
However, the big test was the European Supercup. Real Madrid have to play the first title of the season without Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. Zinedine Zidane wasn’t worried about it and the team did a really good job. Los Blancos were lucky as Sergio Ramos scored in the very last minute to go to the extra time, but Real Madrid was better than Sevilla in general and deserved to win the game.
After this trophy, the players showed their joy. They wanted to start the season in the right way and they trust Zidane to guide the project to the goal: win all the trophies.
In one week time, Real Madrid will start La Liga facing Real Sociedad at Anoeta, a very tough team to start the competition with. The team lost several points at the beginning of the previous season and they know they need to be focused since the start of La Liga if Real Madrid want to finally win the title.
For the first time in the season, Zinedine Zidane could train with all the players available. Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos joined the group and they seem fit to start the season in one week time. Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe and Coentrao are also training but just jogging around the pitch as they suffered different injuries at the end of last season.
Zidane is also concerned about Benzema’s health. The French player forced to play some minutes in the Supercup and now he’s training alone trying to recover.
The last game of the pre-season will be on Tuesday, when Real Madrid face Stade de Reims at 9.30 Uk time, at Santiago Bernabéu. This will be the last test before the start of the season.
