On the side of Madrid, rare are the coaches who manage to achieve unanimity. Zinedine Zidane, although having suffered some slight criticism of the content of the meetings, is one of the few exceptions. This is also the case for Carlo Ancelotti, the man who notably made it possible to win the long-awaited tenth Champions League in 2014. His return to Madrid this summer was therefore welcomed more than positively by public opinion. merengue. And for now, supporters and journalists are quite seduced. The balance sheet is rather good, with three wins and a draw in La Liga, as well as a victory in the Champions League on Inter’s lawn for the Merengues’ debut in the competition.
More than the results besides, which remain more or less the norm for a club of such caliber, it is the proposed content that convinces people in Madrid. In the many debriefing programs of meetings or debate, whether on radio or television, the consultants are unanimous on one point: this Real Madrid has found joy.

All this while relying on the sure values that Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Casemiro are still.
Of course, not everything is perfect. There are still some gaps behind, and the Italian is still tinkering to find his ideal four-line, he who has performed many tests so far, with an Alaba who has played on one side as in the axis, or a Nacho who has been wandered all over the place. Fortunately, Courtois is still imperial on his line, as against Inter, and more or less masks these defensive concerns. If the Madrilenians were for many quite pessimistic during the summer and saw the neighbor Colchonero as the big favorite to seize the Liga, a wave of optimism has invaded the surroundings of the Santiago Bernabéu since the end of August …
