Zidane has good news after the national team break: There are no new names on the casualty list. They were two weeks very feared by the coaches, since the usual risk of FIFA dates was joined this time by the fear of possible infections, since going with their countries involves traveling and interacting with players that come from many teams, which multiplies the contacts.

However, the Frenchman is in luck. In fact, the infirmary is emptier than before the break, because Courtois and Militao have trained with the group this Friday. In the case of the goalkeeper, it is normal for him to start on Saturday (6:30 pm) against Cádiz, while the Brazilian defender could enter the call (now 23 players are allowed) but it is difficult for him to have minutes.

In the section of casualties, the expected: Carvajal, Nacho, Hazard and Mariano. This is a problem especially on the right side and that is why Zidane has tested Lucas Vázquez in that demarcation these days. The Galician already played there in the final stretch of last year, although against Levante the chosen one was Nacho. One of the two will start against the Andalusians. Or even both, if Nacho goes to the center of defense to give Varane or Ramos a rest.

In the rest of the demarcations Zizou will have many alternatives and that is why his conversations with the players will be essential, depending on how they arrive physically after the matches with their national teams. In that sense, the normal thing is that players like Benzema or Asensio, who have not had international matches, are fixed in the starting eleven.
