The national team break is about to end despite the fact that there are still international matches to go. However, football is advancing and clubs have the obligation to look to their nearest future, since there are only a few days left until The league I am back. The great duel in the return of the national championship will be the one that faces the Real Madrid and to Villarreal, Y Zinedine Zidane he already has his mind set on that game.
The French coach and his team will arrive with the obligation to win, add the three points and leave a good image against the ceramic team, since the memory of the damage in Valencia, although deteriorated by international matches, it is still present in the memory of the madridistas. For that clash, Zidane still has many doubts in a squad marked by injuries and casualties derived from the Covid-19.
The Covid-19 factor
Real Madrid has had several players who have tested positive in recent days and who have not been able to be with the rest of their teammates, but who are waiting for the clash against the yellow ‘submarine’. The first of those players to test positive was Eder Militao. The Brazilian central is in quarantine and must pass the relevant tests PCR in order to be available to the technician.
The other two Real Madrid players who also tested positive were his compatriot Casemiro Y Hazard. None of the three could already be in Valencia, so Zidane knows what it is to have such sensitive casualties. Casemiro and Hazard are also doing the pertinent quarantine and will have to pass the corresponding medical tests to be eligible for their return. All players are required to take two negative tests before being able to play in LaLiga.
Hazard’s case has been more particular since the Belgian team, which had called up the Real Madrid winger for his international commitments, has tried to get the player to recover in time to try to play some of the international matches. However, the former soccer player Chelsea He has not rejoined his teammates and his goal is to be against Villarreal.
The last case that has touched the Madrid squad, after the false alarm of Modric due to suspicions of a positive in the Croatian national team, is that of Odegaard. The Real Madrid midfielder has seen how the UEFA he suspended one of his international matches due to the positive of one of his teammates, Elabdellaoui. The Norwegian team was prepared to travel to Romania, but the government of their country prevented them from undertaking the trip despite the fact that all the members of the expedition had tested negative.
Now, a legal conflict arises for Madrid that must be dealt with carefully to see if Odegaard can travel to Villarreal with the rest of his teammates. The Norwegian is already in Spain, but there is a question as to whether he should keep the quarantine imposed in his country of origin or under the existing protocol in Spain. If you do it with the rules here, the place where you are quarantining, you would meet the deadlines to be able to dress short Ceramic Stadium.
Not only do Real Madrid have a long list of players who are surrounded by the coronavirus, but they have also had a significant plague of injuries. In the Madrid team there were already several players with long-term injuries before the national team break, but all of them in the final stretch of their recoveries. Therefore, these days without a league have been good for them to advance their return.
The main case is that of Nacho Fernandez, which has already overcome the muscle injury suffered in The classic in front of Barça and could go back to the call. It could be the same case as Carvajal, who has been training with the group for some time and could have overcome the severe injury that occurred in his knee and that has kept him away for about two months. The two defenders could enter the list.
Who has it more difficult is Alvaro Odriozola. The Basque has also been off the pitch for several weeks, but, although he is in the final stretch of his low period, it is most likely that he is not yet ready for the clash against the yellow team that will take place next Saturday November 21 at 4:15 p.m.
The last two players to be injured had mixed fortunes in the duel against Valencia. The one who got the worst off was Faith Valverde, who suffered a fissure in the posterior tibial spine of his right leg and will still be out for three more weeks. Better luck ran Benzema, who simply suffered an overload and, although he withdrew from Mestalla due to this injury, he will almost certainly be at Villarreal.
The national team stoppage has not only served to review injured players, affected by Covid or who continue with their recovery processes at Real Madrid, but it has also helped some to play valuable minutes and gain confidence ahead of his return with the white team.
Some of those players have been Luka jovic or Rodrygo Goes, both protagonists with Serbia and Brazil respectively and who have not only seen the door, but have also led the good performances of their teams and who have recovered feelings in the face of a very important streak of matches that Real Madrid will have in the coming weeks.
