The Real Madrid from Ancelotti start the Champions and he does it with five injured: Marcelo, Mendy, Kroos, Ceballos and Bale. However, the Italian received the good news that Praise, star signing of the market, has recovered from his physical problems and has traveled to Milan to be in the debut against Inter. Although in the first training session of the week he exercised alone, he does not feel pain and is available for the complicated match against the neroazzurri.
Now the ballot has it Carletto, that he will have to make the defense to give entry to the Austrian, which is already a fixed in the scheme. This was demonstrated in the first three league games, in which he completed all possible minutes (270 '). He did it as a left-handed winger, a position in which the coach used him the most during the time they agreed on Munich. However, in recent days the expectation has grown with the possibility of aligning Alaba as central.
In case of occupying a position in the center of the rear, Ancelotti will have to 'charge' to Nacho or to Militao. They are the starting couple so far this season, but the truth is that both have been singled out by public opinion due to defensive errors committed in the first days. Militao has been hesitant in the exit of the ball and not very forceful when cutting. His mistakes have cost goals, as in the first date against him Alaves. On the part of the canterano, he was one of the best in Vitoria, but since then his performance has declined. He is not being able to anticipate the plays and from a bad position start one of the goals of the Celtic.
If Alaba remains on the left-handed side, the sacrificed would be Miguel Gutierrez. The Madrilenian is beginning to settle in the position and, although he must improve in some defensive aspects, he has left great physical and technical details, showing that he has a level to spare for professional football. He has completed 172 minutes in the last two games, in which he helped the team with a great assist: a center measured at Benzema for the Frenchman to score his second goal last Sunday.
Bet on a more veteran defense and worked with Alaba as a winger or start changing the bad defensive dynamics with a more drastic change in the center of the rear. It is the crossroads that Ancelotti will have to solve in the complicated game against Inter.
