The plague of injuries is reactivating Madrid


“It’s the first time in my career that I’ve seen three cruciate injuries in four months,” he lamented. Carlo Ancelotti after learning of the very serious injuries sustained by David Alaba against him Villarreal. The Austrian extended the casualty report and joined the infirmary Courtois and militarywho suffered from the same illness between August 10 and 12.

Injuries to the Belgian goalkeeper and the Brazilian center back have caused great fear for the white club, knowing they have been missing their two main defensive strengths for months. As a remedy, it came Kepa in debt to replace the Courtois.

Real Madrid, however, made up not only for those absences but also for other key players such as Tchouaméni, Vinicius, Camavinga, Mendy or Carvajal, losing several games throughout the course. Arda Güler, on the other hand, has yet to debut.

The group of Carlo Ancelotti has reached Christmas break as head of The league (tied on points with Girona) and has a group stage in Champions clean sheet: six wins in six games. The less common players were able to take a step forward in all their lines, especially in defense, to alleviate the heavy loss.

In fact, the Madrid equaled the best defensive record in its history with 11 goals conceded in 18 games played, something it had already achieved in the 1961/62 and 1971/72 campaigns.

Much of the blame for Madrid’s good performance lies with the rearguard Antonio Rudigerthe player most used by Carlo Ancelotti this season. The German emerged as the leader of the defense in the absence of military and now, due to Alaba’s injury, he has become an even more intangible piece for the Italian coach.
