Real Madrid's convincing performance at Ipurua on Saturday with the absence of Cristiano (as a precautionary measure and Bale through suspension) has once again opened the debate about the "BBC" starting as Zinedine Zidane's default forward line.
The Real Madrid side that played in Eibar was a harder working, more compact team with James, Lucas and Asensio all helping out with defensive duties. With all probability, Zidane will revert to a starting formation in Naples featuring Bale, Cristiano along with Carvajal, Marcelo, Kroos and Varane, who were all rested on Saturday.
Ahead of tomorrow's Champions League Round of 16 return leg at San Paolo where Madrid defend a 3-1 lead from the Bernabeu, AS.Com asked fans if they wanted the BBC to start in Naples.
The response from the poll was clear: Real Madrid fans do not want to see the Bale, Benzema and Cristiano trio starting in Italy with a resounding 77% voting against the strikers starting. A total of 23.743 online users responded to the survey with 18.293 opting for "No" and just 5.450 happy to see the BBC in the starting formation.
