All doubts have been cleared regarding the defender and side David Alabaand will probably be present at the final of the Champions League before him Liverpool. Let us remember that the Austrian missed the game against Betis by a muscular overload that did not happen to majors. This morning she joined the training again and will work hard throughout the week.
It should also be noted that the defender came with a more serious injury, which he suffered in the first game of the semifinal against Manchester City. According to the medical department, the player suffered a rip in the adductor, which was already believed overcome, and that left him ready to be part of the starter against Betic club. The truth is that it was not like that and this week it will be confirmed whether or not it will be in Paris.
Everything indicates that Alaba will be in the Champions League final
David Alaba if he could play against Betis, but that was risking a key player in the Merengue defense. Besides, he also had the overload and it was better that he rested on the last day of LaLiga Santander. Ancelotti knows that the absence of the Austrian could be a low blow to the aspirations of the merengue club with the orejona.
The defender returned to training this Monday and showed no signs of pain, something very good for the player, for Ancelotti and above all for Real Madrid. However, Alaba will continue under medical observation to find out exactly if he will be with the team at the Stade de France.
If Alaba fails to be in the Champions League final, Ancelotti already has plan B
As there are chances that the Austrian will not be at 100% and not even at 60%, the coaching staff has already thought about who should take his place in defense. That would be none other than Nacho Fernández, who is the most suitable to take on this enormous responsibility. However, the Italian has the possibility of fielding Jesús Vallejo, but his lack of experience in international tournaments could be detrimental.
At the moment the Madrid team has no more news in its starting eleven, and the line-up would be: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Nacho, Mendy, Casemiro, Kroos, Valverde, Modric, Vinicius and Benzema. On the other hand, Liverpool will be made up of: Allison, Alexander Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson, Thiago, Fabinho, Keita, Mané, Salah and Diego Jota.
