Zidane sure BBC best for Madrid


Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has spoken about tactical decisions ahead of the Sunday clash against Betis in La Liga week 27.

“[Gareth] Bale, [Karim] Benzema and [Cristiano] Ronaldo could play with the four in midfield, but I prefer with three up front,” Zidane told his press conference.

“I think Gareth offers more up front with Benzema and Ronaldo. Gareth on the left, Ronaldo on the right and Karim Benzema up front – that’s how I like to see my front three.

“With the three up front we create a lot of chances, with three [midfield] players tucked in behind,” the Frenchman finalized.

Important to note that Gareth Bale is serving a suspension following his aggressive attitude during Las Palmas (3-3) clash. Lucas Vazquez is expected to replace him on the right wing of attack.
