The FIFA Virus has ended up taking its toll on Real Madrid. The doctors of the Brazilian team have confirmed that Éder Militao suffers a muscle injury in the back of his right leg, so it not only falls from the game this Friday of the canarinha against Uruguay but also seriously endangered for the Champions League trip against Shakhtar (October 21) and three days later the Camp Nou Classic.
The Madrid central defender had to be replaced last Monday in the game against Colombia due to a puncture and the first reactions pointed to a possible injury. The CBF confirmed yesterday that the ultrasound performed on the player did indeed reveal that the ailment was serious. The Brazilian doctor, Rodrigo Lasmar, informed Tite that he was therefore losing the footballer and also immediately contacted the Real Madrid doctors.
Militao has been released and will travel to Madrid as soon as possible to put himself in the hands of the Madrid doctors in Valdebebas and immediately begin his recovery. Despite this, it is very difficult to be in a week that can be key for the future of Real Madrid in the Champions League and also in the League championship. Ancelotti, who had been complaining about injuries in the rear, will have to alter his eleven again because Militao was being one of his usual starters. At first I could solve it with the Nacho-Alaba duo in the centrals and how three Miguel Gutierrez (who debuted this week with the U-21) or two players in theory already recovered such as Marcelo and Mendy.
