Zinedine Zidane has to face an avalanche of injuries before the meeting against Atalanta Bergamo on Wednesday (9 p.m.) in the Champions League. Last blow, the package of Karim Benzema.
Currently on a series of 4 consecutive victories, the real Madrid finds colors. Victory at Valladolid (0-1), combined with defeat of Atlético de Madrid on his lawn facing Levante (0-2), allowed the men to Zinedine Zidane to come back to just three points behind the neighbors of the Spanish capital in the standings.
But all is not well at the White House. The injuries follow one another and become a problem before the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League facing theAtalanta Bergamo, scheduled for Wednesday. Indeed, the French technician will travel to Lombardy with a more than reduced group.
The infirmary is full
Zidane will have to do without Karim Benzema injured in an ankle and absent in the last game. On the left wing, it is Eden Hazard who will not make the trip, following a new muscle injury. To the right, Rodrygo will be absent, having been injured in the tendon of the right biceps femoris last December. Sergio ramos, operated on for a meniscus, is still in the recovery phase. While due to a muscle injury to a thigh, Dani Carvajal will not be able to hold his place. It is therefore without its offensive and defensive leaders that Real Madrid will have to negotiate the meeting in Italy.
Eder Militao and Alvaro Odriozola are also unavailable for the match, so Nacho will accompany Raphael Varane in central hinge and Lucas vazquez will continue his interim as a full-back. Marcelo and Federico valverde will also be absent.
Decimated by injuries, the Merengue club will once again complete its team with young players from Castilla.
