Real Madrid will face the Super Cup final with two starters who will not be able to be there. First Dani Carvajal due to Covid and second Alaba due to injury. The loss of the Austrian is the most sensitive, without him Madrid loses leadership and the game’s approach changes completely. This is the possible line-up of Madrid to face Athletic.
The fittest goalkeeper in the world and currently the fittest player in the squad. Against Barcelona he conceded two goals in which I can’t do anything. His participation as a starter in the final is more than evident.
A priori he is being the starting player on the right side since Dani is not being able to enjoy continuity. Let’s remember that Lucas is the player who loses the most balls per game in La Liga with a total of 19. Against Bilbao his starting role is more than expected.
The Brazilian did not have his best game against Barcelona. An error in the clearance and another in the mark cost Madrid the two goals. Alaba’s loss conditions him a lot. He went from being a world top center back to being one more.
He is the patch player of the defense. He can occupy any of the four defensive positions and is always available to help the team. His game against Barcelona was very good, but he is a player who is light years away from Alaba.
Ferland is the safest player in the white defense. It is impossible to leave him in a one for one. Defensively he may be the best in the world at his position, but offensively he loses. He commits risking more than necessary when leaving the ball.
Case’s season is leaving a lot to be desired. Physically he is not there, and when the white team releases the ball he is more of a hindrance than a help. Even so, he continues to give the best of himself day after day. Protagonist in the counter that gave the goal of victory to Madrid in the semifinal.
Toni’s physical condition is beginning to decline. Proof of this was the game against Barcelona, he barely appeared. The core of Ancelotti’s team is beginning to suffer from the load of matches without rotation.
Real Madrid depends more on Luka than ever. If Modric is fine, the team works, if it’s not fine, we know the result. It cannot be that the team depends on a 36-year-old player. Your ownership is more than secure.
It seems that Ancelotti already knows who his owner is. In the big games he is betting on Marco and his performance is being good until his physique supports him.
Against Barcelona Karim did not have his best game, despite receiving the MVP award. I leave isolated actions of great quality, like the action before his goal. Physically he has hit a major downturn.
Despite his goal, he did not have the best game in the semifinals. He was not as incisive as on other days and his participation was not like the one we are used to. Despite that, it is impossible to imagine Madrid without Vini.
