Is there a future for Julen Lopetegui in Real Madrid? This is a difficult question. Now Real Madrid’s coach will try to ease off the pressure on him, when Los Blancos host Viktoria Pilzen in a match from Group G of the Champions League.
Julen Lopetegui is the man who took the helm at Real Madrid after Zinedine Zidane, but so far things are not going well for him. The European champion is performing badly in La Liga, even losing its home game against Levante in the previous round.
Many people in Spain already talk that Lopetegui will be sacked very soon. Especially if Real Madrid make a mistake against Viktoria Pilzen. It seems that Spain’s ex-manager still can’t impose his style in Madrid. We can also conclude that Real Madrid made a serious mistake by selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus. It’s obvious that right now Real just can’t replace the Portuguese superstar.
Right now Real Madrid are second in Group G with 3 points won, being on one point behind the surprising leader CSKA Moscow. Los Blancos won their first game against Roma, but after that suffered a surprising loss against CSKA in the Russian capital. Of course, Real Madrid remain a favourite for the first place in the group, but this version of the team is raising a lot of doubts.
Viktoria Pilzen on the other hand are currently 4th in the group with just 1 point won, which is not surprising anyone. We knew from the beginning that the Czech team is going to be the underdog in this group. Viktoria started their campaign with a draw against CSKA, but after that they suffered a devastating 0-5 loss against Roma.
That’s what we had to say about the Champions League clash between Real Madrid and Viktoria Pilzen. Good luck!
