Mariano joins the party

Football returns to Di Stéfano, where Real Madrid has a severe pending task. The Whites have chained two consecutive defeats in their stadium, having blurred not only the condition of a fort, but also the security of the team in that nothing can go wrong there. The victory in the Classic was a balm of holy water, but the calendar tightens and a new appointment appears on the horizon: Huesca. Zidane does not want distractions and has already communicated the 22 players who are scheduled for the game this Saturday (2:00 p.m., Movistar LaLiga) against the Huesca.

The list is practically traced to that of the Mönchengladbach, except for one novelty: Mariano returns. The other four casualties remain the same: Carvajal (medial lateral ligament of the right knee), Odriozola (twin of the left leg, although he has already started to jog), Nacho (right thigh) and Odegaard (right leg soleus, has also started to jog) are left out of the game.

The positive note has been put by 24, which has been released in a call for the first time this season after recovering from his tonsillitis operation (on September 16, 44 days ago). He did not enter a list since the last day of last season, against Leganés in Butarque (he did not play). Well, it should be remembered that the second leg of the Champions League against Manchester City was lost when testing positive for coronavirus. Mariano has not played a single minute since July 2 (Zidane took it out on 93 'in the 1-0 victory over Getafe; he saw the yellow within seconds of entering).


The young man also repeats the call Sergio santos, very much to Zidane's taste and who has been exercising all week with the elders. Despite his presence, the right-back will once again be for Lucas Vázquez, who is showing good performances in the lane and is increasingly opposing more strongly for the future. Rotations are expected in a team that must host Inter Milan next Tuesday (9:00 p.m., Movistar Champions League), in what will be a game that can weigh all season.
