Real Madrid receives Valencia this Saturday with seven casualties


Real Madrid receives Valencia this Saturday (9:00 p.m.) on matchday 13 of LaLiga EA Sports 2023-2024 with up to seven casualties in the first team, after the recent muscle problem of goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and another injury to Turkish midfielder Arda Güler, as reported by the Madrid entity.

Carlo Ancelotti’s list for the visit of Valencia was conditioned by absences. The Italian coach will not be able to count on the suspended Antonio Rüdiger due to the accumulation of yellow cards. Furthermore, this Friday it was learned that Kepa suffers a muscle injury to the adductor longus muscle of his right thigh, which forced him to withdraw from the warm-up against Braga this Wednesday, so Andriy Lunin will repeat in goal.

Arda Güler will also not be available, who was injured again while rushing to recover. “Unfortunately this has happened. Before the game against Braga it didn’t seem like anything, but it continues to bother him. It’s not something serious, but the player is depressed because he is young, he wants to play and he wants to contribute. It’s a step back. It’s not a relapse. of the old injury. We have the entire break to try to recover it as best as possible,” Ancelotti declared at a press conference.

These three casualties are added to those already known of Thibaut Courtois, Éder Militao, Aurelien Tchouameni and Dani Ceballos. For this reason, youth players Fran, Edgar and Nico Paz, who already made his debut against the Portuguese team in the Champions League, entered the list.

Thus, the Real Madrid squad includes goalkeepers Lunin, Fran and Diego Piñeiro; the defenders Carvajal, Alaba, Nacho, Lucas Vázquez, Fran García, Mendy and Edgar; the midfielders Bellingham, Kroos, Modric, Camavinga, Valverde and Nico Paz; and the forwards Vinícius Júnior, Rodrygo, Joselu and Brahim.
