How Real Madrid cope with what’s been a summer of change will be one of the big storylines this season in La Liga.
Not only did they lose hugely successful manager Zinedine Zidane, but they also lost some key players in the form of Sergio Ramos, Raphael Varane and Martin Odegaard. With such key defensive departures, the arrival of David Alaba goes some way towards replacing the void left by Ramos and Varane.
Replacing Zidane in the dugout is Carlo Ancelotti, who’s previously won the Champions League with Les Merengues, so at least some continuity and stability should be found with the Italian. La Liga expert Graham Hunter’s comments on why Ancelotti is the right man for the job makes for good reading, insisting: “I’m thrilled to have Ancelotti back. I’m thrilled to have a man like that coaching in this country because although he’s different to Zidane, he’s like Zidane in that he oozes class, he oozes knowhow and he brings history to the club.
“I like people of depth; it’s always brilliant to see coaches who blow the cobwebs away, who are new and who are aggressive and talented.”
Even though there’s been much upheaval, they still possess a superb squad, that’s led by star striker Karim Benzema, who’s the clear favourite at $3.00 for the Golden Boot following Lionel Messi’s departure from Barca. On top of the French wizard, Thibaut Courtois in goal, Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos, Gareth Bale, Marco Asensio, Ferland Mendy, Dani Carvajal, Federico Valverde and Vinicius Junior are all elite operators in their own right.

Priced at $2.20, the bookies interestingly still have them as favourites ahead of last season’s winners Atletico Madrid ($3.50) and Barcelona ($3.25).
Set to be pushed hard by both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, but also by Sevilla, Europa League holders Villarreal and Real Sociedad, it’ll be a captivating title race in Spain.
Finishing as runners up last campaign, Real Madrid will be doing all they can to go one better this time around in their quest to be crowned champions once more.
