Welcome to cfrealmadrid.com. Today, we are going to take a look at the Full Month Preview of Real Madrid for January. Let’s explore them. Real Madrid won only 2 matches out of 5 in the month of December. Furthermore, our winning margin is quite low. However, on a positive note, we have not tasted a single defeat in December. Make sure to check our December Review of 2019. In January, Madrid have possibly five fixtures, three of them in La Liga Santander while there is one or possibly two matches (if Real Madrid wins against Valencia and goes to final) in the Super Copa de España.
We have 1 home match and 2 away games in January. We will play against Sevilla on our home while our away game will be against Getafe and Real Valladolid. The remaining 1 or 2 games in Super Copa De Espana are on neutral grounds in Saudi Arabia. For the month of January, we will represent a Mini Match Preview of each match here so that you can get an idea of the opponents we have to face this month and how crucial this month for Real Madrid.
The month of January is very crucial for Real Madrid. We have to fly for tough matches like Getafe and Real Valladolid in La Liga and Valencia for Super Copa. The role of Zidane will also be very important. We are lacking attacking instinct in terms of goal scoring. The January transfer window is very important for us. We have to sign a genuine goal scorer in this window. We must take every game seriously and emerge as victorious if we want to compete in the title race. Zidane has to start with the right players, based on their forms not on their names. He also has to tackle the injuries of our crucial players including Hazard, Marcelo, and James. Otherwise, we can expect Real Madrid to slip out of the title race.
REAL MADRID JANUARY PREVIEW
GETAFE vs REAL MADRID :
Getafe is the 6th rank team in the La Liga points table. Considering the recent form of Getafe, it would not be easy to beat them on their home because their record at their home is very good. However, we should try to win this game as our past record against Getafe is satisfying. We have to move into this game with good confidence and the right tactics.
Getafe will try to get the advantage of playing in their home. James will come back to the squad by that time, in fact, he has already started training. Real Madrid will also miss the presence of Sergio Ramos in the line up because the captain is already suspended for this game. So, Our defense will lack his experience. However, we have to get 3 points from this game. The game will kick off at 04:00 PM as per the local time on Saturday, January 04, 2020. The match is to be played on Matchday 19 which means half of the season.
VALENCIA vs REAL MADRID:
Real Madrid will face Valencia in Saudi Arabia for the Super Copa Semifinals. This final match was supposed to take place in the summer transfer window and Madrid wasn’t even supposed to compete in it. However, the authorities changed it to a knockout tournament. There will be semifinals and a final in this tournament. Real Madrid drew against Valencia to play this Semi-final. The matches will be played in Saudi Arabia at King Abdullah Football Stadium.
Real Madrid have already faced Valencia in December and the game resulted in a draw. The last-minute goal from Benzema saved us from an embarrassing defeat. The loopholes and lack of concentration that was seen against them will hunt us and lead us to elimination as this is a knockout tournament.
However, According to sources, Zidane has decided to not take Hazard on the KSA trip because we need him in the coming season and he will not take the risk with him. Furthermore, We have to play well against Valencia to qualify for finals. The game kicks off at 08:00 PM as per the local time on Wednesday, January 08, 2020.
SUPER COPA de ESPANA FINAL:
Super Copa de Espana Final will kick off at 07:00 PM as per the local time on Sunday, January 12, 2020. If Real Madrid beats Valencia in the Semi-final, then our possible opponents are Atletico Madrid or FC Barcelona. They will also face each other in the second semi-final. If Madrid qualifies, it will be a very interesting encounter in the Final of Super Copa. The final will be either El Clasico or Madrid Derby.
REAL MADRID VS SEVILLA:
This is another very important fixture in La Liga. Sevilla is currently in great form and on the third spot with 34 points. Sevilla has always been a tough opponent for Real Madrid. However, we will have the home advantage with us. This fixture is the only home fixture for Real Madrid in January.
Both teams will have a chance to strengthen their position in the League Table. Sevilla has players like Ever Banega who has most assists for his team. Moreover, Sevilla has scored 7 goals from set-pieces which shows how good they are in the air. We should try to win this game and get 3 points to chase Barcelona in League race. We need goals in big matches against tough opponents which is something Real Madrid is lacking at the moment. The match will kick off in Santiago Bernabeu at 8:00 PM as per the local time on Saturday, January 18, 2020.
REAL VALLADOLID VS REAL MADRID:
We will play our last match of January against mid-table club Real Valladolid. They have 20 points after playing 18 matches now. We should not take Valladolid lightly because they have good players who can hurt any opposition on their day. Look how well they played against Real Sociedad. If we want to pick 3 points, we have to put more effort into the game. We cannot take this game lightly. It will have a huge impact on the title race. Every game is crucial for us, and we must try our best to win it. Real Madrid vs Real Valladolid will be kicking off at 09:00 PM as per the local time on Sunday, January 26, 2020.
I think all the games are very important and crucial for us. Real Madrid have ability to win all games in the competition. The toughest match of December will be against Sevilla in La Liga. The match against Valencia and Getafe will also be interesting to watch and will not be easy by any means. We must be mentally prepared and physically strong for these games.
