The newspaper ‘AS’ informs that Zinedine Zidane is thinking about starting Bale against Eibar. It would be a most remarkable gesture as, before the break caused by the coronavirus crisis, the manager didn’t have him amongst his favourites.
Before the break-in Spanish football because of the coronavirus crisis, Bale wasn’t having his best moment with regards to Zidane. He missed the last two matches, which were the ‘Clásico’ and against Betis, and missed the one before that, against City.
But this could change with the resumption of La Liga. ‘AS’ assures that the manager has in mind to start him. It isn’t confirmed, but he will consider it and make a decision as soon as possible. He would play on the right-wing in a front three alongside Benzema and Hazard.
In this way, Eden would remain on the leftwing, and Karim upfront. It is a dream attacking trio for any Madrid fan, but more so a few years ago when the Welshman was at full performance. Today he has to vindicate himself.
But he has room for it. 11 matchdays ahead and a turbulent transfer market- because of the health crisis, which will revolutionise the prices- will be his resources to assert himself. Should he again prove to be a key asset in the remainder of the championship, his situation may change.
