This season the Real Madrid supremo shuffled the team’s line up many occasions, but Zidane thinks that star studded attacking lineup is the best option in attack.


The French coach believes putting Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo on the attacking front give his side best chance glory of the season.

The trio called as BBC played well in their last match against Napoli where they managed to beat them by 3-1 goal in their home ground and the Real Madrid side through to the next round with 6-2 aggregate.

Though no one from BBC was on that scoresheet on that match also this season BBC come under threat in the Santiago Bernabeu.

Cristaino Ronaldo plays more in a central role for Real Madrid than a winger and on the other side the Wales Wizard was out of the team for many days due to injury problems and in  the absence of him the Real Madrid boss choose 4-4-2 formation and it worked brilliantly for them,

Meanwhile, there were increasing calls for the Spaniard Alavaro Morato to replace the French attacker Karim Benzema in the front line.

But the French coach said: "Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo could play with the four in midfield, but I prefer with three up front,"

"Of course, Bale can drop into the midfield four, but I prefer the three up front. What do you [the reporter] prefer, why?

"I think Gareth offers more up front with Benzema and Ronaldo. Gareth on the left, Ronaldo on the right and Karim Benzema up front – that's how I like to see my front three.

"With the three up front we create a lot of chances, with three [midfield] players tucked in behind.

"We played very well in Eibar [last weekend's 4-1 win] with a 4-2-3-1 formation, or 4-4-2.

"It depends. With one up front, two up front or four in the middle we can change our formation and switch. Everyone has a right to have their own opinion.

"You may feel we play better with four men across the middle.

"If all three [Benzema, Bale and Ronaldo] are fit I have all three playing up front."
