Real madrid would be very vigilant if they want to maintain their position at the top of La liga table. Their next match against Bilbao would be the toughest opponent they would face since the La liga restart. If Zinedine zidane wants to get all the three points at San Mames stadium, then he should avoid these mistakes in his lineup against Athletic Bilbao.
1. Start Toni Kroos ahead of Valverde
Gone are those days Football are ruled by big names, now it depends on the talent. Valverde is by far younger than Toni Kroos, though kroos have experience, but I think Madrid would need someone with pace and strength to command their midfield against a strong Bilbao side. It would be unwise for him to start Kroos ahead of Valverde.
2. Start Mendy Ahead of Marcelo
This is a match that real Madrid would need the verse experience of Marcelo rather than Mendy. Marcelo is always to best option while playing big games like this. Mendy have a good statistics this season, buy Marcelo should start ahead of him. Marcelo might be getting old, but he still have what it takes to perform at the top.
3. Bench Isco
This match will surely need a player like Isco to start. He have been benched since La Liga restart, this is time for Zidane to avoid the mistake of benching him. It would be very important to see him start. Isco have the ability to penetrate defense, Bilbao no doubt would be very strong in the back and the services of Isco would be highly recommended to do a good job.
