Real Madrid Madrid are left with only two midfielders
Madrid won, but the team continues to lose troops. Toni Kroos saw the fifth yellow and will not be able to play on Tuesday against Gefate, leaving Zidane with only two first-team midfielders. How will the team rebuild to continue its classic 4-3-3? The first solution may be to call Antonio Blanco, one of the most promising homegrown players at La Fbrica. It will make the leap to the team to go directly to eleven against Getafe. A risky bet but perhaps the most logical. And it is that Madrid have no more options in the first team after the injuries of Isco (difficult to arrive) and Valverde (two weeks to go) and the departure of Odegaard.
Another alternative that Zidane can handle is to place Marcelo in the center of the field, as a midfielder. The Brazilian has plenty of creativity and talent to play in that area, where he has performed in the past. Of course, the physicist can penalize the team in that demarcation.
The other possible casualty is that of Odriozola, who ended the game by taking his hand to the hamstring of his right leg. Cramp or break? Today you will get rid of doubts. Returns Militao after his sanction, so the defense seems clear: Nacho, Militao, Varane, Mendy.
By Tuesday, it seems that Madrid will not recover any of its players. Ramos, Hazard, Valverde and Rodrygo are ruled out one hundred percent, while Isco and Lucas still have some option, although they are very fair.
