Alaba is still absent from the main team
David Alaba will not return to Real Madrid against Valencia either. For this Thursday’s game. Ancelotti already knows that he will still not be able to have the Austrian defender, who, although he has been playing the ball in recent days, will have to wait at least for the duel against Mallorca on Sunday. An absence that continues to leave Carletto under defense. Lucas Vázquez is in the middle of the recovery process and Mendy has just started treatment to return from his recent injury that will have him unemployed for nearly two months. It will be the seventh game that Alaba has missed.
Dani will be in a good shape
The reincorporation of Carvajal will be, in any case, a relief for the transalpine coach. This will allow Nacho to lend a hand on the left side, although the most feasible alternative at the moment is for him to insist on Camavinga as a three and Tchouameni, ready to play again , will recover his role in the Madrid midfield . A return that opens up many possibilities in the range of Ancelotti, who during the Frenchman’s absence has seen Ceballos grow exponentially and has made his debut for Mario Martín (18 years old), from Castilla.
