Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has said that his team must adapt to their new schedule following the coronavirus pandemic but is confident that his squad is deep enough to cope.
La Liga returned to action last week, becoming the second European top-six league to get back underway following the Bundesliga. Real got off to the perfect start as they beat Eibar 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Despite that and the fact that they are only two points behind leaders Barcelona, Los Blancos have 10 league games to play within the next month, as well as a potential UEFA Champions League semi-final and final, something that they will have to adapt to, according to Zidane.
Talking to Marca after watching his team overcome Eibar, he said: “Football at the moment is very different, but we must adapt. The first half was good, but we found it difficult after the break.
“These are three important points, but we have 10 more games to go.
“We cannot do anything about the schedule. We have a large squad, and every player is ready. Now we rest and prepare for the next game.”
Los Blancos currently sit a price of 6/5 with William Hill to win the league this season, their first championship since the 2016/17 season.
