Zidane drops Courtios from Matchday Squad


Real Madrid Manager, Zidane has dropped embattled goal keeper, Thibuat Courtios, after a series of bad performances at the Capital Club, with Alphonse Areola drafted in as his replacement.

The Former Chelsea Goalies has failed to replicate his Atletico Madrid form for Madrid, since joining the club from Chelsea in 2018.

Areola who joined Madrid from PSG back in September – could now challenge for the 27-year-old’s number one jersey, especially if he produces a strong performance against Alaves.

Elsewhere, Bale has been restored to Zinedine Zidane’s line up, as the Blancos aim to overtake Barcelona at the La Liga summit.
