Real Madrid are facing certain selection problems ahead of their away derby clash with Atletico tomorrow. It’s said in Spanish newspaper Marca that Zinedine Zidane could be forced to push Cristiano Ronaldo into the number 9 role.
With Alvaro Morata sidelined with injury and Karim Benzema struggling with his fitness, the three time ballon d’or winner could be deployed as a number 9, so Lucas Vazquez or Isco fill in the spot on the left flank. Gareth Bale could also be swapped to the left and Vazquez deployed on the right.
