Real Madrid’s boss fires a warning to his side

Real Madrid are doing pretty well under Santiago Solari and will gun for a third straight win when they face off versus Viktoria Plzen on Wednesday evening in the Champions League.

Real Madrid’s interim manager Santiago Solari will be looking to win a third successive match and his first in the UEFA Champions League since taking over from Julen Lopetegui. The Whites face an away trip to Viktoria Plzen and would be a step closer to the knockout phase of the competition with a victory.

“It’s always very nice, this competition, which is linked to the history of our club, inseparable,” said a relaxed Solari in a news conference. “When we hear the Champions League anthem, we all get excited. It’s fantastic to be back in this competition. This is my third game in this role, so I’m very happy that I get a chance [in the Champions League]. I enjoyed it a lot as a player.”

Real Madrid have been decent in Solari’s two games in charge and won both of them by 4-0 and 2-0 margins. The boss has acknowledged that the Whites are not at their best, but they are gradually progressing after they were thrashed 5-1 by Barcelona.

“When you look for a solution to a problem in football, it’s never just one thing, it’s step by step,” said Solari. “We’ve taken two steps, two games. We had to play well to win them, you don’t win games without doing things well, and they were tough games. We did a lot of good things in these two games and we have to do what we did well again, but also improve what we didn’t do well. Every team can always improve.”

Author’s Take

Real Madrid are certainly far beyond their best in all competitions this season, but if they can string together positive results, then they’ll surely do well by the end of this season. Santiago Solari has approached the opponents with a more dynamic and attacking style than Lopetegui did and that’s paying off well with six goals in two games.
