The situation 

Problem for Ancelotti this Saturday morning in Valdebebas: neither Benzema nor Rodrygo went out to train with Real Madrid in the last session before receiving Girona at the Bernabéu , this Sunday from 4:15 p.m. The Frenchman continues to drag his muscle fatigue problems and no risk will be taken; As for the Brazilian, he had a bad night due to an upset stomach and was constantly vomiting. He went to Valdebebas to be seen by the medical staff and to hydrate himself. Ancelotti commented at a press conference that he will be available, although it remains to be seen in what state and if he will have enough strength to be in the game from the start. If they have not worked with the group in the last session, it is very unlikely that they will be in the game against Girona on Sunday, although in the case of Rodrygo Ancelotti he will try to get him to play the role of Benzema. If he is not in good condition to be in the eleven, Ancelotti has few options to get a centre forward against the Catalan team. Everything indicates that, in that case, Hazard would enter, who already managed in that position at Celtic’s home, with good grades, although failing in later commitments . The other possibility is Mariano, who has hardly played and who knows that he does not count for the Italian.

Valverde and Modric, ready

Those who did go out to train with the group without problems were Valverde, Modric and Ceballos. The three seem recovered and will be able to enter the list without problems, although in the case of the Uruguayan it is yet to be confirmed, since he received a strong blow in the duel against Sevilla, a knee from Papu Gómez in the right thigh, and he does not want to run no risk with it. Ancelotti will have to invent in the attack against Girona, with so many accumulated casualties. Vinicius will once again be the leader of the attack and it is likely that Asensio will play from the beginning on the right, as he already did against Leipzig , a duel in which he gave Vinicius a good assist. In midfield and in defence, Ancelotti has many more options. And Ancelotti underpinned this Saturday’s training session with the presence of midfielder Gonzalo, from Juvenil A.
