The third round has just ended recently and now Spain are preparing for the fourth round, the midweek round. The round will start tonight (Tuesday) with two games and will continue tomorrow (Wednesday) with four games. In the spotlight, Sean Weissman, who is absent from the Valladolid squad, will be hosted by champions Real Madrid. Atletico Madrid who exploded against Granada will be hosted by the new rising Huesca.
Real Madrid – Valladolid
Zinedine Zidane’s team achieved its first victory of the season in the previous round after 2: 3 Very hard on Betis In a game where very not the list. It will be the first home game of the season for the champions, who have won all six of their games at Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium after the Corona, with little to absorb. However, the visitors had already made trouble for Blancos last year when a late equalizer by Sergei Guardiola forced a 1-1 draw in the second round.
Real will be missing Tony Cross who will be out for between ten days and two weeks. It seems that Zidane will continue in the lineup with four ties in the middle when Karim Benzema’s partner (who has not yet scored this season) in the attack will be Vinicius Jr., who was written in the media about a “roller coaster with Zidane”. Marco Asensio and Eden Hazard have been included in Zidane’s invite list for the first time this season.
Zidane referred to Hazar At the press conference, even before the staff was published: “He is very close to returning, he is ready and training well, regularly, unlike in previous days. I do not think he demonstrated a lack of professionalism. He wants to play and has suffered injuries that have bothered him for a long time. What we want, and is the first – that he will not suffer more from discomfort. The season is very long. He wants to play with his friends, help us and be healthy. “
Rodrigo and Vinicius Jr. versus Anso Patti and Joao Felix who play regularly: ““ This question makes me laugh. If Vinicius plays 34% of the minutes and someone else 32% does it matter? This is the reality of this club. We have 25 players and everyone is going to play. Some play more and some less. Everyone needs to be prepared and everything outside is not important. This is the reality of football and it will not change whether I am the coach or someone else. ”
On the staff and the possibility of procurement: “Is the staff better than last season? Everyone can give their opinion. I am satisfied with my players, they are the best. The market is open until October 5, but why add another player? It is not simple, there is already a cohesive group. ” Zidane added that he did not understand the criticism of the right decisions made by the VAR system in the last game and refused to talk about the possible punishment of Manuel Pellegrini from Betis who complained that his team was deprived.
About Valladolid and the first home game: “This is a very dangerous opponent, she will come to disturb us. We have to play well from the first minute to the end to continue what we did from last season. We need to be with the same determination. We need to get better, we are aware of that. “
connection Pada and Alvareda Who scored against Betis and excelled on the pitch, commented on his role: “My job is to run all the time until I eat no more and my legs explode. Zidane asks me to join the plaza and apply high pressure. “Everyone needs to conquer and not just the attacking players.” The contact complimented his teammates in the center of the field: “Cross-Modric-Kasmiro? They give me a lot, the competition with them is great. We are all getting better. I get a lot of advice from them. “
And what about the opponent? The visiting Valladolid, who failed to win in the three opening rounds, will seek to stun Real away, which they have not done since the 1999/00 season. Weissman, who has played 55 minutes so far as a substitute in the two opening rounds, and due to Yom Kippur did not play 1: 1 against Salta Vigo, will start on the bench again. Sergei Guardiola will lead the way.
Huesca – Atletico Madrid
Diego Simeone’s team comes into the game in a great mood after defeating 1: 6 the Granada in a huge game. Last year the Colchoneros won all three opening rounds and they want to restore that this year as well. Luis Suarez, who recorded a dream debut with a duo and cooking as a replacement, will still not win the team shirt by estimates. Jose Maria Jimenez who suffered from Corona is still out of the squad. Other than that Simeone’s staff is very diverse.
Simeone He said ahead of the game: “I do not take criticism to heart and I am not enthusiastic about flattery. We respect the media. We go game after game. Our opponent presented great games. We have a responsibility, we will not treat the euphoria of others. When we win, it’s the best style in the world. ”
About Suarez: “Since his arrival he has displayed humility, a desire to learn and prove himself, he is important on the pitch in the daily life of the team. He can start in the squad with Diego Costa, it is possible that I will combine the two during a game and maybe separately. ” Asked about President Enrique Cereso’s statement, Diego Costa must play, he replied: “I was taught that when the president speaks – we all listen and stand behind him.”
Villarreal – Alabs
Onai Emery’s team was humiliated at Camp Nou when it absorbed a quartet in one half. Now the yellow submarine will be looking for a second home win of the season when it meets Alabs who started 2020/21 very weak with just a point from three games and is ranked 19th. Estimates are that the coach, who made it clear that his team should apologize to the crowd for the shameful game, will not make changes at 11. Gerard Moreno and Paco Alcázar will lead the way.
In another game: Eibar – Elche (22:30)
