With a new caretaker manager, Santiago Solari and his Real Madrid team are off to the Czech Republic for a big Champions League match against champions Viktoria Plzen. The match will be held in the Doosan Arena on Wednesday night.
Due to a tragic season launch, Julen Lopetegui was dismissed which the 42-year-old Argentine had to fill in as caretaker manager aiming two solid victories for Real Madrid. Players such as Sergio Ramos, Luka Modric, and Gareth Bale were snapped in a rather monotonous demeanor in a video shared by the squad.
Other members, on the other hand, shared a smile when snapped such as Thibaut Courtois, Casemiro and Vinicius prior to getting on the plane with the rest of the team. ETA for the team is at 1:30 PM where they will be heading to final pre-game practice at the Doosan Arena.
The first match against Plzen gave Real Madrid a 2-1 win with Karim Benzema and Marcelo taking home a solid win for the team with two goals.
La Liga’s match last Sunday was a spectacle for the Madrid players where they finally put a halt to their five-game loss. Vinicius and Ramos were two power players responsible for the team breaking their losing streak, where they were able to successfully take on Real Valladolid at the Bernabeu 2-0.
