Including Luka Modric, Rodrygo, Marco Asensio, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Andry. Lunin both tested positive for coronavirus last week, while Isco became the latest player to be confirmed with coronavirus on Monday,
with Ancelotti missing another key player. Two of them are Dani Carvajal, who is injured and Casemiro, who is suspended for collecting all yellow cards. On Wednesday night’s clash with Athletic Bilbao:
“It’s true that we are missing a lot of players and may have to consider a reshuffle… I don’t know… I’m thinking about that,” Ancelotti said.
“The map we are using now (4-3-3) has helped us a lot in the past games. But we didn’t have any right-wing and that was the only thing that allowed me to switch to a 4-4-2 system. I’ll have to wait and see the night before.”
Madrid won 10 games in a row in all competitions but ended up as a result. Draw 0-0 in the game against Cadiz on Sunday.
Still, they have some good news that Eden Hazard has done well with his return to the starting line for the first time since September.
“He’s been training well for a month now, the enthusiasm and the rhythm of the game. If I keep him playing on Wednesday night, I don’t think there will be a physical problem. The players are fine.”
