Santiago Solari pressed his case for becoming Real Madrid’s permanent coach on Wednesday after a 5-0 demolition of Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League. Madrid have won three games on the bounce, scoring 11 goals and conceding none. Here, AFP Sport looks at five changes Solari has made to help instigate Madrid’s revival. Solari appears to have made the decision to back Courtois as his first choice, after the Belgian started both games against Valladolid and Plzen. It is tough on Navas but at a club like Real Madrid, there can be little room for sentimentality.
