Real Madrid’s season hit a new loss as they were dumped out of the Copa del Rey in midweek after a 2-1 home loss against Leganes. Despite having edged the first leg thanks to a late, late goal from Marco Asensio, Los Merengues could not close out the deal back at home at the Bernabeu in midweek and that has heaped more pressure on boss Zinedine Zidane.

Everything is now hinging on their progress in the UEFA Champions League to potentially keep Zidane in the job. The Copa del Rey has gone, they are trailing La Liga leaders Barcelona by a huge 19 points at the moment after some shoddy league form and there are rumours that they are ready to cut their ties with Cristiano Ronaldo, with Neymar the potential replacement in what would be a shock deal.

They don’t have an easy task ahead of them in the UEFA Champions League either having been drawn against French giants PSG in the round of sixteen and that has come about after Real Madrid failed to win their group after dropping four points in their matches with Tottenham. So it has been a huge fall in standards from Los Merengues after their Spanish top flight title last year and the retention of their UEFA Champions League title.

It’s all going a bit wrong and that has raised interesting in Next Real Madrid Manager Betting at Betfair. It is Carlo Ancelotti, who was fired from Bayern Munich this season who has risen to the top of the begetting. He won the Champions League with Real Madrid and he is the market leader at Betfair at 5/2 odds* (betting odds taken on January 25th at 7:14 p.m.).

Looking at the list though, it is 12/1 shot Antonio Conte who is perhaps the most interesting. Things are just a little unsettled for him at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea at the moment, and he would probably be an appealing manager to go after. He has plenty of experience and has proven time and time again that he can get winning sides together.

With Zinedine Zidane himself describing their Cup defeat against Leganes as a ‘fiasco’ and his ‘worst moment as a coach’ he appears to be on borrowed time at the moment.
