Real Madrid face Sociedad with 3 key defenders out!! 0

Posted on November 08, 2013 by admin

With Real Madrid already lying six points behind fierce La Liga rivals Barcelona and five behind city rivals Atletico, it goes without saying that Carlo Ancelotti and his players are walking a fine line. Another early slip up would give the club a huge task to catch up and would put a negative spin on things heading in to the two week international break.

So the news that three key defenders are unavailable this weekend is about as welcome as a fart in a spacesuit. At least tomorrow’s La Liga clash against 7th placed Real Sociedad is at home and the Santiago Bernabeu has been a fortress for a long time, with the only points dropped there this season being the narrow loss to Atletico.

It is always a worry when a club’s players head off for an international break, and Real Madrid’s fears have been justified with a few key players picking up injuries while away with their national teams. There is another round of games tomorrow, and so Carlo Ancelotti will be sweating on losing any more players and hoping that the international managers go easy on him and use the Madrid players sparingly.

There were obviously a lot of old acquaintances in this game between Real Madrid and Chelsea to decide who won the International Champions Cup in Miami. To call it a friendly might be slightly misleading, however, because of the attempts by Jose Mourinho to wind up his former star player Cristiano Ronaldo by talking about the `real` Ronaldo being the Brazilian striker.

Real Madrid face the biggest game of the season so far tomorrow, and it seems as if Jose Mourinho will have fewer players to choose from than he would like. Luka Modric, who was the star of the show as Madrid came from behind to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford, is a real doubt. To add to the problems, the Brazilian left back Marcelo looks like missing both legs.

Real Madrid in trouble after Ronaldo and Mourinho clash 0

The one thing that Real Madrid have had going for them recently is the form of the Portuguese striker Ronaldo. It was clear when he was suspended against Osasuna just how much the team relies on him. Not just for his goals, 28 already this season, but his all round performance.

That is not good enough for Jose Mourinho, apparently, as he laid into his star player after the Spanish cup game against Valencia. Video shows Mourinho becoming exasperated during the second half of the game. He was unhappy at some of the decisions made by Ronaldo going forward and felt that he was failing in his duties tracking back and helping the Brazilian left back Marcelo.

Real Madrid have had plenty of problems with injuries this season, especially in defence, but it is disciplinary issues which are causing Jose Mourinho problems this weekend. Two of the most important players for the Spanish champions are unavailable for the trip to Pamplona to play Osasuna.

Christiano Ronaldo has been the most influential player by far for Los Blancos this season, but he received his fifth yellow card of the season against Real Sociedad last weekend so is suspended for today’s match. At least Mourinho has his two other strikers, Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema, available after the Argentinean has recovered from his hamstring problem.

Jose Mourinho did not have the best end to 2012, finishing the year third in the Primera Liga table and trailing main rivals Barcelona by 16 points. Not only that but the Spanish media was full of stories about arguments in the dressing room and Mourinho had been involved in a bust up with prominent journalist.

Jose Mourinho has another left back dilemma on his hands as he takes his Real Madrid side to play Valladolid tomorrow. With his preferred left back, the Brazilian Marcelo still on the sidelines after an operation, Mourinho was glad to have got Fabio Coentrao back into the team, but the Portuguese defender is now also injured, leaving the Special One a headache as he cannot afford to drop any points in La Liga.

Real Madrid could soon have Cole and Essien from Chelsea 0

Jose Mourinho already has one of his former players from Chelsea in the Real Madrid squad, and could soon add the left back Ashley Cole, according to reports. Mourinho has a good relationship with the players who enjoyed great success with during his time in London.

Michael Essien was brought into the squad in the summer, despite not having played alot for Chelsea, but Mourinho knows the Ghanaian and trusts his talents. This was proved on Saturday when he picked Essien at left back against Celta de Vigo. Essien is not a left back, and Mourinho had called Nacho into the squad from the reserves but gave the starting place to the former Chelsea man. This means that Essien is also likely to start against Dortmund on Wednesday.
