Madrid, again with the defense in the box

Zinedine Zidane will have to design a defense of circumstances for the decisive match that Madrid will face on Sunday in the Coliseum against him Getafe. The white team is especially decimated in the rear, where it will not be able to count on the injured Sergio Ramos (who also has covid), Dani carvajal and Lucas Vázquez, neither with the sanctioned Nacho nor with Raphael
Varane, who remains isolated at his home after testing positive for covid.

Thus, the French coach only has four pure defenders from the first squad left in his chamber to face the clash in the Getafense fiefdom: Ferland Mendy, Militao, Marcelo and Álvaro Odriozola. The Basque lane has become the last option on the right side since Zinedine Zidane decided to bet on Valverde in Anfield due to the losses of Carvajal and Lucas Vázquez.

The sanction of Casemiro (expelled in the Classic) and the scarcity of resources in the rear will force the technician to reel Valverde in the midfield and to Odriozola on the right wing. The main doubt lies in the axis of the rear, where Mendy could be the companion of Militao. Marcelo should enter the left-back, relegated to the substitution all season, and it is likely that Zidane will call up a squad to complete the defensive line in the call. Victor Chust, Miguel Gutiérrez and Marvin Park They are the players with the most options to be on the list for Sunday’s game.
