His peak years may be behind him and financially Real needed to sell, but there is a huge Ronaldo-sized hole in their attack, and more importantly, their attitude. Their goals-per-game ratio is 1.44 this season compared with 2.47 last season, and they’re having less shots and shots on target per game, too. After years of playing the bridesmaids, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema are now centre stage, but have just 11 La Liga goals between them this season. Goals are not coming from elsewhere, either; Sergio Ramos is the team’s joint second-highest scorer with four. “We can’t be crying for someone who didn’t want to be here” said Isco in October, but whether Ronaldo saw his long-term future at Real or not, during each 90-minute stint he was the leader Real are sorely missing. And with the mention of Isco, the lack of the midfielder in the starting line-up is also an issue. A fan favourite, Isco has been restricted to a fringe role since Solari took over from Julen Lopetegui in November. He is yet to start a league game under Solari, and much was made of the 26-year-old’s apparent refusal to shake the coach’s hand in the dressing room after a humiliating 3-0 defeat by Eibar in late November, a loss Toni Kroos described as “the worst I’ve seen in my five years here.” Real Madrid's Spanish international midfielder Isco has been forced to watch on from the bench under Solari.

He was left on the bench and given a half-hour cameo at 1-0 down as Vinicius was handed a first start. Widely recognised as one of Real’s top performers, the fallout will no doubt have caused fractions between Solari and president Florentino Perez, who wants to restrict inner conflict and keep Isco at the Bernabeu. If he was to leave, a January move away seems unlikely. So Isco’s future at Real may depend on what comes first: Solari’s exit or the summer transfer window. There is a ดู บอล truesport 1 ดู บอล สด ออนไลน์ ฟรี สด ออนไลน์ มือ ถือ ฟรี feeling that Real’s three Champions League successes masked an ageing team struggling to keep up with an increasingly competitive La Liga.
