The Real Madrid returns to the ring after the last international break of the year. He does it wanting revenge in The league after the painful defeat against him Valencia two weeks ago, but against a difficult rival, the Villarreal from Unai emery. The current second of the domestic classification measures the level of reaction of the Zinedine Zidane who arrive at the game with a plague of casualties.
And it is that Madrid has been crushed by him fifa virus and for the last minute casualties of two of his latest positives: Casemiro Y Militao. They both tested negative this week, but there have been doubts in their most recent tests and both have been grounded. Also Karim Benzema, who suffered a small injury at the Mestalla and is still limping despite the hope that he would arrive on time.
To these three casualties is added the positive of Luka jovic, victim of the wave of positives in the national teams, being Serbia one of the most affected. The break has also left Madrid without its captain, Sergio Ramos. The defender of Beds suffers a hamstring injury and everything indicates that he will also miss next Wednesday’s vital match against him Inter Milan. Odriozola Y Faith Valverde they complete the quota of absences.
Hazard to the rescue
Within the call of Madrid there is some positive news, such as the entry of Early, which seemed vital given the casualties. The French central defender does not reach one hundred percent due to some discomfort in his shoulder, but it seems that Zidane has no choice but to align him. Is also Eden Hazard, negative already in Covid, although up there are more options if Zizou does not see fit to risk with the Belgian, who has only trained two days with his teammates. Carvajal Y Nacho they also return.
This Saturday’s game is a great opportunity to see Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian, recovered from his injury, did not play any minute with Norway as a precaution and is ready to regain ownership. If he matches Hazard on the field, it will be the first time that this pair of magicians has been seen together on a pitch. Without Benzema or Jovic, it would not be strange that the ‘9’ starter was Mariano.
Kubo, yes; Alcacer, right?
On the other side, there is hope to see a little Take kubo, who is living the face and the cross of the coin in his assignment at Villarreal. In addition, at the premises, their top scorer, Paco Alcacer, has set off the alarms by not jumping to the last training session of his team at the Ciudad Deportiva, apparently due to muscle problems, so it is a serious question for the match.
Unai Emery’s team is not confident, although he admits that he is going through one of the best moments of recent times, with options to be able to fight for the highest places in the table if he manages to beat a direct rival.
After the national team break, the Castellón team arrives with hardly any casualties and is very solid in La Cerámica, where between the League and the Europa League, they accumulate a draw and six victories that have contributed to sustaining the good moment of the La Plana club.
In the sports side, coach Unai Emery will not have the injured Albert Moreno and although he recovers the Argentine defense Juan Foyth and maybe also to Jaume costa, it is very likely that there will be no changes with respect to the eleven that Emery practically considers fixed in the League.
