  • Ancelotti talks about the few penalties, two, indicated in favor of Madrid in 2021: “It's not normal”

The devil knows more for being old than for being the devil. Ancelotti smiled derisively when asked a week ago if the League was won. He does not understand why it is talked about so superficially when there are twenty games left, sixty points to be played and history dictates that the championships are not conquered until the month of May. He knows that these questions seek an answer from a headline, but he is surprised that people linked to football question this matter, when experience says that two losses or two draws change all sensations. Cádiz tied at the Bernabéu and the coronavirus has done the rest . The casualties of Alaba and Isco were added to those of Asensio, Modric, Rodrygo, Casemiro, Carvajal, Bale, Marcelo, Ceballos and Lunin to leave to the leader with eleven discards in his visit to San Mamés, decimated by the coronavirus, with Casemiro sanctioned and Carvajal and Ceballos injured, the Utreran for a small overcharge.

With these common aggravations, unrelated to the ball, the Real Madrid coach does not understand why they gave him the title for granted so early, in December . Much remains and everything can change. Athletic will confirm that feeling with a strong approach to take advantage of the lower potential of Real Madrid.

Alaba's coronavirus generates a headache for Ancelotti, who will have to use Nacho as central and must think about who he chooses as a winger and right winger. Lucas Vázquez will occupy one of the two missions and the Madrid coach considers playing with four midfielders to fight face to face with the rival , since it does not have a valid right end against the viral infections of Rodrygo, Asensio and Bale , while Hazard does not enter the wing and is really a midfielder.

The Madrid coach has lost six starters in a matter of days and warns his men that in Bilbao it's time to put on the overalls And forget about those weakening accolades.

Valverde and Camavinga will be needed more than ever. Successors of Modric and Casemiro in the eleven, the power of both seems essential to counteract the rojiblanco push with an adequate response. They will be in charge of pressing in the center of the field and imposing offensive rhythm on the Whites, led by Kroos .

Decimated, Ancelotti has had to turn to seven kids of the subsidiary to make your list. Toni Fuidias and Diego will be the goalkeepers in the reserve, to which are added Miguel and Rafa Marín in the rear, Blanco and Arribas in the center of the field and speedy Peter as forward, who hopes to make his debut with the first team.

Vinicius, Benzema, Kroos, Militao, Mendy and Courtois will maintain the traditional column backbone of Real Madrid in a new eleven for the Italian coach, enemy of rotations without football arguments. He does not make substitutions to give minutes and satisfy other men, he only does them because he considers it necessary and the plague of casualties forces him to make too many variations in his ideal alignment.

Under these conditions, Vinicius will become more important than ever. Ancelotti underlines that is not tired, how a twenty-year-old boy is going to be, and emphasizes that he will need his gallops to overcome the local. The Brazilian will play his twenty-second consecutive game, the 101st in the League.
