Possible alignment of Real Madrid against Naples

Possible alignment of Real Madrid against Naples

When faced with problems, solutions. This is the mentality of Ancelotti, transparent in a press conference: “Talking about losses in my mind as a lack of respect for those who go there.” So from the top of the losses, despite their number: Courtois (tear of the anterior cruciate of the left knee, with involvement of the meniscus), Kepa (tear of the right adductor), Militao (tear of the anterior cruciate of the right knee, without involvement of the meniscus), Camavinga (destruction of the external lateral ligament of the right knee), Tchouameni (incomplete stress fracture of the second metatarsal of the left foot), Modric (overload of the left ischium area), Güler (rupture of the right quadriceps muscle) and Vinicius (rupture of the left femoral biceps, with distal tendon involvement). 35% of the staff is in the infirmary. Eight out of 23.

With another 15, Carletto must make eleven. And one proper name stands out: Ceballos. Injured during the American tour, he appeared again at the end of September, played four games (all entered the last part, played an average of 19′) and was injured again. From there, until last Sunday, when he played 21′ in Cádiz. He gathered a little shooting, but the losses pushed him to eleven: he did not start at Real Madrid since June 4 (last day of the last League, against Athletic). And Ancelotti will bet on the four midfielders he can use, there is no room for maneuver, he will have to use three young players for the bench: Mario Martín, Théo Zidane and Nico Paz.

Brahim, recovered

The rest of the team is recited almost at once: Alaba will return to the back (Nacho, if he repeats, will give Rüdiger a rest), after resting in Nuevo Mirandilla and Brahim, recovered from his “intestinal problems “, points to eleven. The return on the 21st will move Joselu to the bench, once Rodrygo has confirmed in training that his knee is fine. In goal, with Kepa still limping (he did not make the list), Lunin will repeat, who may face his last starting game (and waiting for the Cup). In this way, the possible eleven of Real Madrid against Naples will consist of: Lunin; Carvajal, Rüdiger, Alaba, Mendy; Kroos, Valverde, Ceballos, Bellingham; Brahim and Rodrygo.
