Real Madrid vs Levante Betting Tips
Lopetegui, with much of his career in base divisions, made success in the main selection of Spain and was subject of great controversy on the eve of the World Cup of Russia. After renewing his contract to continue ahead of the Fury, he accepted a proposal to change the selection for Real Madrid. I would do that after the World Cup.
However, the club decided to make the announcement that he would be the replacement of Zinedine Zidane before the World Cup and warned the Spanish Federation’s management minutes before issuing the official statement. The leaders, of course, did not like it and dismissed Lopetegui 48 hours before Spain’s World Cup debut.
Despite creating this situation, Real Madrid would not be willing to play the coach for much longer. According to the Spanish press news gave the coach deadline until October 28 for presentation of results. The final day is for when it is marked the classic with Barcelona in Camp Nou. Until then, the coach still has the match against Alaves and the encounter with Plzen, also in Madrid, for the Champions League of Europe.
The ultimatum was given after the Real had passed four games without having scored a goal. The result of this offensive fragility were three defeats (two for La Liga and one for the Champions League) and a draw (for the Spanish Championship).
The situation of the coach only did not get worse because he counted on the collaboration of the one that is considered his main adversary. In the three rounds of the Spanish Championship in which the Real made only one point, Barça scored two avoiding a great distance between them. Thus, with 14 points (four wins, two draws and two losses), Real, fourth placed LaLiga, is only one point behind the Catalan team, second placed. The leader of the tournament is Sevilla, who is 16. That is, the scenario is reversible.
For this, the reinforcements must be contracted. One of the names is the Belgian midfielder Eden Hazard. However, if this occurs it will only be in January, in the next transfer window. It remains to be seen whether Lopetegui will have a job to try to reverse the situation.
The game against Alaves is his first survival test. For him, the coach should expect a positioning of the medical department in relation to four important players: defenders Daniel Cavajal (five matches in the 2018/2019 Spanish League season, one goal) and Marcelo (five games, no goal); the half Isco (five games, one goal); and striker Karim Benzema (eight games, four goals). Anyone released should appear as the holder.
The Levante, to a lesser extent, has experienced a crisis early in the season. He passed five rounds without a win. After four defeats and a draw, he scored 2-1 at Alavés in the seventh round of the Spanish Championship. In the sequence, he put three more points in the account when making, as a visitor, 1 to 0 in Girona.
He reached the ten points (three wins, one draw and four losses), reaching eleventh place in the standings. A comfortable position for those whose primary goal is to escape relegation.Coach Paco Lopez also has his difficulties with injuries to set the team that will face Real Madrid. They are concentrated in the defensive system. They are in the infirmary Chema (five Spanish 2018/2019 games, no goal), Coke (three games, no goal) and Antonio Luna (five games, no goal). In addition to the defenders, it is doubt due to the injury the striker Armando Sadiku (still without performances in the season).
