What hinge for Real?
Placed in isolation, the 2018 world champion with France is also very uncertain for the quarterback return to Anfield on April 14. A last-minute package that falls all the more badly for Madrid as Sergio Ramos, victim of a calf relapse in the Spanish selection, is also absent.
The choices are now limited in the defensive axis for Zinédine Zidane. Nacho should evolve with Eder Militao, while Ferland Mendy could start on the right in the absence of Dani Carvajal.
