- The center-back falls out of the call against Mallorca due to a mild flu process. He was prepared for the Clásico. He will be against Barça.
Real Madrid had all the players available to face Mallorca tonight, but at the last minute, Eder Militao left. This has been confirmed by the club itself in its official media this morning, in a brief statement: “Militao will not be available for the match that Real Madrid will play today at the Visit Mallorca Estadi, corresponding to matchday 28 of the League (21: 00h).”
The central defender, the undisputed pillar for Ancelotti, is going through a small flu process and did not travel. He was one of the three players who was warned (along with Mendy and Casemiro) and if he had seen a card against Luis García Plaza’s team he would have missed the next league match against Barça. In this way, Militao will have no problem playing against Xavi’s men. A similar case was carried out a week ago by Valverde, who was not against Real due to the flu and played against PSG. Ancelotti will tweak his defensive plans in Mallorca and it is most likely that Nacho will have an opportunity again, as happened against PSG due to Mendy’s own card accumulation.
Militao is the outfield footballer, since he has Courtois slightly ahead of him, who accumulates the most minutes at this point in the season and rest until now, did not enter his dictionary. He leads most of the defensive categories of the team (aerial duels, defensive, blocked shots…) and will be, inevitably, a sensitive casualty for a poisoned clash.
The only two defeats for Madrid at this point have come against teams in a similar context to Mallorca, which is close to relegation. The first was against an Espanyol that was still readapting to the First Division (2-1) and the second against Getafe (1-0), which was struggling to escape from the bottom places. In both cases, they took place away from home, and it was also the first time that the white team had returned to Son Moix after the sinking of Zidane’s B unit two years ago (1-0). cheating match.
