Benzema, almost ruled out

The French Karim Benzema and the Spanish Dani Carvajal, both with muscle discomfort, are, according to EFE, almost ruled out for the game this Sunday against Cádiz, In which the presence of Croatian Luka Modric, who tested negative for coronavirus this Friday after being positive on Wednesday, is difficult but remains in doubt.

The midfielder needs to pass a serological test, the cardiological examination required by the club’s medical services and meet the requirements of the Community of Madrid and LaLiga in order to rejoin with the rest of his teammates. Until this Saturday, on the eve of the meeting, no progress will be made on it, so its presence is complicated.

As EFE learned from club sources, Real Madrid is also in contact with the Basque Community for Wednesday’s game in which it will visit an Athletic Club (9:30 p.m.) which revealed this Friday that goalkeeper Unai Simón and central defender Íñigo Martínez have tested positive for coronavirus .

Italian Carlo Ancelotti will also have casualties due to COVID-19, since Marcelo, Asensio, Bale, Lunin and Rodrygo remain isolated in their respective homes. In addition, his son and first assistant, Davide, also tested positive this Thursday.

Absences to which Benzema and Carvajal will presumably join. The striker is still convalescing from the overload he suffered in the derby in his hamstrings, an area in which he had suffered discomfort since the game against Real Sociedad. For his part, the right side also suffers from muscle discomfort.

Both did not exercise this Friday with the group and have few options to be against Cádiz. Neither did the Spanish-Dominican Mariano Díaz for the second consecutive day, so the Serbian Luka Jovic gains even more options to replace Benzema at the top of the attack.

The one who can return to a call is the Spanish Dani Ceballos. This Friday he completed training with the group for the second day in a row, ending his ordeal since he was injured on July 22 after a tough tackle against Egypt in Spain’s debut at the Olympic Games.

In addition, Ancelotti once again had Castilla field players who will appear on the list in the face of the accumulation of absences: left-back Miguel Gutiérrez, midfielders Antonio Blanco and Sergio Arribas and right-handed winger Peter.
