The Real Madrid has traced the situation in Champions and remains in the upper zone of La Liga waiting for his best version. All this in a year where there has been no preseason and where injuries are the order of the day. The team led by Zidane he is overcoming setbacks and the defense, one of the lines of the field most affected by physical problems, has plenty of solutions to overcome last-minute casualties.
Zinedine Zidane was breathing a few days ago when CarvajalAfter an injury of more than two months, he returned to eleven. The Villarreal He was the rival and the youth squad started as a starter. A meeting where Carvajal performed at a high level and left a very good taste in the mouth. It didn’t seem like he had been standing for so long. Madrid recovered a prop per band at a decisive moment in 2020. However, the joy has been short-lived. Carvajal will not be before him Alaves and he will miss several more games.
In principle, two weeks of absence from the side are considered. In between, Real Madrid has two Champions League games and a heavyweight duel against Sevilla. The goal for the defender is none other than the derby against him Atlético de Madrid. Those are the plans, but, until it is verified if they can be fulfilled, Zidane has two luxury squires as Nacho and Lucas Vázquez.
Two key names in the French coach’s rotation and who, in addition, still await a new reinforcement. Álvaro Odriozola is still out after injuring himself shortly after Dani Carvajal. He could not take advantage of the absence of his direct competitor for ownership. But Odriozola he is already training on the pitch and in the next few days he could return to team dynamics. Until that happens, Zidane has secured the right back.
Nacho and Lucas convince
The two homegrown players started the season designated. They needed to step forward. They weren’t at the level. Rumors about whether this would be his last campaign in white began. However, it was giving them minutes on the pitch and earning Zidane’s full confidence. In his usual position or covering the gaps that the injured left in the French coach’s scheme. Especially in those moments, when they were most needed, they appeared.
Nacho Fernández has always acted as central. The Right sideDespite everything, it is one of the usual areas where the merengue coach allows him to develop. Nacho has played five games so far this season … and has not established himself in any of the positions. It goes for everything. His first three appearances were on the right back, when Carvajal and Odriozola dropped. The two remaining games, and which have also been the last, Nacho has worked as a central defender in the absence of Bouquets and the problems of Militao. Approved and exceeded.
Lucas Vázquez has gone through a similar situation. Nine games in the legs and five have been as a winger. That is, more than half out of their usual position. Lucas approved against Barcelona, entering unexpectedly due to Nacho’s injury, he served in the Champions League and has regained the confidence that had been lost in him.
With the return of Militao to occupy the central position with Varane, and with the right back in low hours due to the new injury of Carvajal and the recovery of Odriozola, Zidane has that band assured. Nacho and Lucas have lives to spare.
Carvajal’s resignation occurred at a key moment. Real Madrid plays the pass in the Champions League and in The league you need to step forward. The sensations are good and untapped in the domestic competition remains in the high zone of the classification.
This league match will be against Alavés. Duel that, in principle, should be affordable for the meringue set. But, after this day at Di Stefano, Zidane’s men await several early finals. In the Champions League they will travel to Ukraine and host Borussia. In that first match, the pass to the second round can be certified. In addition, in La Liga they will have to travel to Sánchez Pizjuán to meet again with Lopetegui and his Seville.
