Odds slashed again on Madrid sacking Zidane as Real trail Barcelona


Zinedine Zidane has never been shorter with Ladbrokes to leave Real Madrid before the end of the season.

The Real Madrid boss and his side have dropped points for the eighth time this campaign against Celta Vigo, with Los Galacticos now 16 points off La Liga leaders Barcelona.

And our traders have reacted accordingly, making it just 5/4 Zidane pays the price for a dreadful first half of the season.

That’s shorter than the Frenchman has ever been to leave the Spanish capital. Although those odds may fall even further if the European heavyweights crash out of the Champions League in the coming months.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Real Madrid continue to struggle through the season and our traders reckon it’s only a matter of time before chiefs call time on Zidane’s stint in charge.”

The next few weeks will be very interesting at the Santiago Bernabeu indeed.
