The injury of Sergio Ramos leaves Zidane with only three centrals to face the decisive part of the season. Those centrals are Varane, Nacho and Militao and they can stay in two, Varane and Militao, for the Classic on April 10.
Nacho He is one yellow away from completing his cycle and, therefore, from missing the next Real Madrid League match, in this case the Clásico. If the youth squad sees a card against Eibar this afternoon, Zidane he will have a serious problem playing against Barça.
Nacho he is fulfilling his role this season, successfully making up for the numerous losses that Real Madrid has had in defense. He has played as a right back due to injuries to Carvajal and Odriozola and, above all, central because this season, Sergio Ramos he has been injured almost longer than playing.
If Nacho sees that yellow, Zidane will have to trust Militao for the Classic and that is something that does not seem like good news for Real Madrid. The Brazilian, the most expensive defender signed by the white club, has not lived up to expectations and Zidane trusts him very little. In fact, Militao rang loudly to go into the winter market and is one of the players that can come out this coming summer.
