This weekend, the Madrilenians will travel to Villarreal with a decimated workforce on behalf of the 10e day of the Spanish championship.
The international break has absolutely not smiled on Zinedine Zidane and his staff, the team of real Madrid will resume competition this Saturday against the yellow submarine, with a very small group. Several Madrid residents are missing, the injured and Covid-19 positive players are numerous.
Eden Hazard, Eder Militao and Casemiro were all put in solitary confinement in early November after testing positive for Covid-19. They would not yet be able to return to competition. If the health crisis has created some concerns at Casa Blanca, this would also be the case with the international truce. Sergio ramos and Raphael Varane, the two central defenders of Real Madrid, have both been injured, during the last days, with their respective selections.
The captain of the Spanish champions had to give up his place, during the crushing victory of La Roja against Germany in the Nations League (6-0), because of a muscle problem. Same diagnosis for Raphaël Varane who, meanwhile, was hit with the Blues against Ukraine (4-2). In addition to the two exchanges, Dani Carvajal, Alvaro Odriozola and Nacho are all injured and still have not resumed collective training.
