After both players went off the field during Real Madrid’s 2-0 victory against Valencia, Carlo Ancelotti allayed concerns that their chances of facing Liverpool in the Champions League could be jeopardized by their injuries.
The defense appeared to be dealing with a groin injury, and Benzema seemed to be dealing with a hamstring issue.
But the Italian trainer asserted that Benzema’s injury is nothing significant and Militao’s injury is more severe. He won’t be able to play this next weekend against Mallorca.
Even if some of those players currently appear to be lock picks, Madrid is already counting on squad players to get them through the winter. At fullback, Eduardo Camavinga once again shone, and in the second half, the Bernabeu sang Dani Ceballos’ name.
Camavinga hasn’t had much experience playing in that position, but he offers so much moving forward from there, according to Ancelotti.
Upon hearing the home crowd sing for him to stay, Ceballos continued, “It was emotional.” Going on loan to England and then getting hurt when he came back has not been easy for him.
The midfielder’s deal expires in the summer, but home fans want him to stay.
Gabriel Paulista’s red card for a reckless challenge on Vinicius in the second half completely destroyed Valencia’s chances of a comeback.
When he remarked, “Paulista was in the wrong,” temporary coach Voro offered no justifications. It was obviously a red card. It was a result of his fury. By then, they were struggling, and it was impossible with just 10 men.
The most goals in La Liga this season to be reversed by VAR belong to Real Madrid, with five. Milan is the only team in Europe’s top five leagues that has had more goals this season.
Real Madrid leads all teams in the top five European leagues this season with 12 La Liga goals scored from outside the penalty area.
After going six games without scoring for Real Madrid in any tournament, Vini Jr. now has three goals in his previous five outings.
