Real Madrid: Fans hammer Zinedine Zidane for team selection in Real Betis draw

Real Madrid failed to capitalise on Barcelona’s defeat to Levante on Saturday by drawing at home to 14th-placed Real Betis. They’re now level on points with the Catalan side, but the lack of goals compared to last week’s 5-0 thrashing of Leganes will have frustrated Los Blancos fans.

Madrid have scored 21 goals from 11 games this season, and their main striker Karim Benzema has netted seven times so far, putting him on track to beat his tally of last season, 21. However, new signing Eden Hazard hasn’t hit the ground running, scoring just once in six appearances this season, including Saturday’s draw. Real Madrid fans don’t think Zinedine Zidane is picking the right team to fire them to the top of La Liga.

Madrid’s official Twitter account posted a video of Zinedine Zidane’s interview after the game, with the quote: “We started the match with attitude, with a lot of strength, we did well. The only thing we were missing was a goal.” Fans then took to the replies to let out their frustration at Madrid’s inconsistency in front of goal and Zidane’s team selection.

You can see some of their reactions to the tweet below:
