Real Madrid team news v Gladbach: Defensive duo return, but star midfielder a doubt

Real Madrid welcome back captain Sergio Ramos and right-back Dani Carvajal for this week’s Champions League clash match-up against Borussia Monchengladbach, but Martin Odegaard may miss out through injury.

Ramos has been absent since last month’s international break when he went off injured in Spain’s 6-0 win over Germany, while Carvajal has been limited to just four starts this campaign and none since last month’s 2-0 win at Inter.

Real Madrid news recently has focused on the concern for the club in defence, particularly when Ramos is absent, with it being highlighted how Madrid have lost seven of their last nine matches in Europe without the central defender.

The Spain international has missed the recent La Liga clashes against Villarreal, Alaves and Sevilla and also sat out the Champions League ties against Inter and Shakhtar Donestk.

However, Odegaard may miss out through injury as he is currently suffering from muscular discomfort.

The Norwegian has started in the last two European ties but has made just one start in La Liga since September.

    If real madrid want successed, is better to bench mendy&varane to pay their attension on marcelo &nacho to patner ramos cavajal at the back. At also their attack to be asensio,benzema,lucasv if need to change mariano is so suitable

    1. AHMED says:

      If real need most crucial win they have to start with Mendy and varane

    2. musbahu hassan says:

      you don’t have sence asensio and lucas v hhhhhhhh you have to thing again

    3. Eric Kamaka says:

      Marcelo is a liability nowadays as our defence will be vulnerable and we should not allow unnecessary goals. Hence Mendy is probably the best person for Marcelo’s place. Lucas/Jovic has not shown anything hence he is not a suitable candidate for a forward.

    If we need to win that match, our line up need to be like,, Courtios_Carvajal_Ramos_Varane_Marcelo_Casemiro_Valverde_Kroos_Rodrygo_Lucas V and Karim Benzema…

    Substitutes will be…
    Mariano Dais
    Modric
    Mendy
    Nacho
    Marco A and so on

    It will be better for the team if Zidane used Lucas, Benzema and Rodrygo for the attack and Marcelo, Ramos, Varane and Carvajal for the defense and the midfielders shall be Casemiro, Kroos and Modric with this formation Real Madrid will win the game so easily
