Liga Preview: Real Madrid-Zaragoza

Liga Preview: Real Madrid-Zaragoza

A chink in the armour? Last week I commented that for Valencia and Deportivo La Coruna there would be few better chances to make up some lost ground in the title race than the circumstances of last weekend.

Champions and leaders Real Madrid had opened up an eight point lead and were heading to Santander prior to the season-defining return leg with Bayern Munich in the Champions League. As I have repeated ad finitum, the CL is a huge distraction to the champions and represents the most serious obstacle to their retention of the Spanish title. Sure enough, Valencia dispatched Depor 3-0 and Real Madrid stumbled to a draw at Santander losing Ronaldo to injury in the process. All of a sudden there were two and it is very much game on again. I remain convinced that as great as the Madridistas are going forward – and they are indisputably the finest collection of attacking marvels I have ever seen in club football – they are inherently and fatally unbalanced.

What is less sure is my conviction that Valencia will expose the neglected imbalance in the Madrid side and punish them for the transfer profligacy that saw them fail to sign a few defenders having lost the aging lynchpin Hierro and the water-carrier Makelele. Having said that, my thesis has always been that it is the distraction of Champions League football that would open the door to the Ches, and last weekend was a clear underlining of that scenario.

The question now is not so much whether Madrid are flawed - they are - or not whether they are distracted by the CL. It is whether Valencia can go on the sort of run that would require something like 9 wins and 2 draws in 11 games to have any serious hope of pipping the champions. Balanced or not, this writer can only surmise that the win over Deportivo, which finally freed the Galicians from the title race to concentrate on Milan in Europe, needs to be the start of an unbeaten run the like of which they put together to become Winter champions.

And so to tonight's clash at the Bernabeu. While it is easy to pontificate, rant, and wallow in the trivialities and nonsense of football, it should not be forgotten that the Spanish capital has more serious things on its mind than a mere football match. The Spanish federation has decided to go ahead with the weekend's action despite the carnage of Thursday – an entirely correct if meaningless decision. Will all the cinemas and theatres of Madrid close because of the terror? Will the shops? Of course not. Life, somehow, goes on. The mere cancellation of a simple football match means precisely nothing, and to pretend it does is to give football and inflated sense of importance. All that matters is security and safety, and the authorities are happy that the football- going public will be safe. Let the people have whatever distractions they choose. If that is football, then fine. The effect of Thursday's events will cast a pall over proceedings tonight. How the players react will be for the evening itself to reveal.

Ordinarily, any observer would predict little hope for the visitors, and it should not be forgotten that Real Zaragoza have conceded three goals on each of their last visits to the Spanish capital. Having said that, Zaragoza will also be facing Madrid next week in the final of the Copa del Rey, and will see tonight's game as a chance to acquaint themselves with what lies ahead. Such highly charged double headers can often create their own momentum and synergies, so tonight's clash needs to be approached from a slightly different position of the looming Cup final as well as recent events.

Real Madrid go into the game having comfortably eased Bayern Munich out of the Champions League. As predicted here not so long ago, Bayern just didn't seem to have the form, having wintered poorly in Germany, to truly take out Madrid. Oliver Kahn's blunder proved critical to the balance of the tie, and although I would sympathise with those who claim that the Bavarians were too impotent on Wednesday to lay the blame squarely at their estimable goalkeeper, the fact was the concession of that away goal changed the approach Bayern could take in Madrid and removed their strongest hand – the ability to protect a one goal lead by defending in depth and then counter attacking the fragile Madrid rearguard.


Yet for me, the abiding memory of the game will be the moment when Ze Roberto and Makaay carved up Madrid only to see Iker Casillas deny the momentarily ponderous Dutchman with a great finger tip save. The sight of David Beckham and Michel Salgado leading a futile cavalry charge back to their own goal to remonstrate with each other was hilariously revealing. The fear on their faces said it all. These boys can all attack, but they haven't a clue about organisation. It will cost them…


RECENT FORM

Zaragoza are in great form having won the last three on the bounce. Defeats of Villarreal, Valladolid, and Malaga have resucitated their season and catapulted them to 13th position in the table, five points clear of the drop zone. The recent signings of Movilla and Dani suggest the La Romareda club will maintain the top flight status attained last season.

The hosts are unbeaten in La Liga since January. Ten goals in their last four league games tells its own story. So, however, does the fact that they have conceded six goals in those games, failing to keep even one clean sheet. This just adds to the debate in Germany about the impotence of the Bayern attack on Wednesday, Casillas's only clean sheet in the last six!


TEAM NEWS

Ronaldo is out for a month with a muscle tear. Raul returned in midweek to face Bayern but looked out of sorts. Oh, how they could do with Fernando Morientes now, a man they will be reacquainted with in the Champions League quarter final with the dangerous Monaco. There is a story brewing somewhere there…


PLAYER TO WATCH

Gabriel Milito (Real Zaragoza) If ever a player deserved to haunt the Bernabeu, it is Gabriel Milito. The Argentine defender was due to sign for Real Madrid in the close season, only to find the champions pulled out of the deal at the last moment. Let's face it, it's not as if Madrid don't need the reinforcements, and his signing would have allowed the excellent Ivan Helguera to push into midfield where he is more effective. Rumours suggest that the Milito deal collapsed for health reasons. Perhaps the health of the Real Madrid defence went it.


PROBABLE LINE-UPS

Real Madrid: Casillas; Salgado, Roberto Carlos, Helguera, Raúl Bravo, Guti, Beckham; Figo, Solari, Zidane; Raúl or Portillo.

Real Zaragoza: Laínez; Cuartero, Rebosio, Milito or David Pirri, Toledo; Galletti, Ponzio, Movilla or Generelo, Cani; Villa, Drulic or Dani.
