In a jokingly manner, Inaki Alonso (Murcia Coach) said that the only way to beat Real Madrid today is by praying.
Both sides will meet later today in a Copa del Rey match and with Jose Mourinho labeling this match very important as he is making it a “Make or Break” situation for some of his players, praying is probably the right answer for Murcia.
“Madrid’s squad is tremendous and Mourinho knows how to handle them perfectly.” Said the Murcia coach in an interview with AS.
“He is a teacher, and I know that the ones he will bring from Madrid will be world class. I recognise Oezil as one in particular that I like. We must produce a perfect game, do not leave anything to chance, and then pray. It is almost impossible but we must try. There is a little chance that we must grasp, because this is the cup.”
Jose Mourinho is not taking this match lightly as he is looking to bounce back from last year’s 4-0 defeat that saw Los Blancos leave the tournament early. Although Mesut Ozil, Xabi Alonso and Ricardo Carvalho, all expected to get some rest, Karim Benzema has no reason to not show up in tonight’s match.
Think praying will help Murca defeat Real Madrid? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
