Zidane will not be able to count on the premiere of Real Madrid in this Copa del Rey with two of his usual pieces in defense. Sergio Ramos and Dani Carvajal they did not work with the rest of the group in the last training session prior to the Copa tie against Alcoyano. Nor did he step on the grass of Valdebebas Rodrygo, who is still recovering from the injury he suffered against Granada.
Ramos and Carvajal dragged discomfort from the last matches they played, against Athletic and Celta respectively. Those of the Real Madrid captain, who did not participate in the initial rounds but then jumped onto the pitch to do some exercises, are located in the knee. The center-back, in fact, was in doubt at the start of the Super Cup match and left La Rosaleda with a bandage on his knee and limping. The winger, meanwhile, had stepped on the pitch in the previous two sessions.
Zidane worked with 23 footballers. The absences led to the call of two Castilla players, the central Víctor Chust and the midfielder Antonio Blanco, which they repeated with the first team after also working with the group in the previous days. Although Zizou takes more players on the expedition, it should be remembered that the calls in the KO tournament are limited to 20 players.
After training, the French coach will appear before the media online from the press room of Real Madrid City in Valdebebas. It will be around 1:00 p.m.
