Real Madrid achieved an important victory over its traditional rival, Barcelona, with two goals to one in the El Clásico match that was held between them yesterday, Saturday, at Montjuic Stadium, in the 11th round of the Spanish Premier League.
Barcelona controlled the match for a full 60 minutes before Ancelotti turned the tide with two substitutions: Camavinga and Modric came on instead of Ferland Mendy and Toni Kroos. Bellingham scored both goals in the win.
Real Madrid announced this morning that one of the team’s players suffered a fracture in the metatarsal in his left foot, and Marca newspaper confirmed that he will be absent for a period of up to a month and a half.
Real Madrid has just announced that Tchouaméni returned injured from the Clásico: “Following the tests carried out on our player Aurélien Tchouaméni by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he has been diagnosed with an incomplete stress fracture in the second metatarsal of his left foot. Pending evolution”.
Starting in a season in which, from working in the United States , it was clear that he was going to be an essential piece in the idea that Carlo Anceltti had in his head, the French midfielder faces an injury that is always delicate and requires a good recovery.
The treatment of metatarsal stress fracture, in most patients, is usually conservative, without immobilizing the ankle. Only in cases of an injury that involves tears in the area can it take you to the operating room , but these are almost extraordinary situations.
If everything goes normally, Tchouaméni ‘s sick leave period will be a maximum of a month and a half. The French international’s injury comes during a relaxed stretch of the season for Real Madrid, in which his duties in the Champions League are more than advanced and in which there is a break for the national teams in two weeks.
The problem of ‘3’
But Tchouamén i ‘s injury has another, more worrying side for Ancelotti. Without the former Monaco player in the pivot, Camavinga will once again be important in the midfield. That is normal, but the left back has become a headache for the Italian in which Camavinga , as seen on the Olympic mountain in Barcelona , is the best solution.
With Mendy injured again and Fran García far from being the player he was at Rayo, Camavinga ‘s performance on the left-handed side is a guarantee. But the options of Alaba and Nacho for the left-handed side are also in defense .
In any case, Luka Modric made it clear in Barcelona that he is ready to play more than he has been doing in recent weeks. The growth with the passage of Valverde ‘s games and the return of Ceballos at some point may allow Ancelotti to have Camavinga as a full-back as his main option.
