Fede Valverde is in isolation. He won’t be able to help the team in the upcoming games of Real Madrid.
Serious problems in the midfield
Real Madrid played without Casemiro, Kroos and Valverde in the game against Getafe. It was a tough game for Zidane but Real Madrid had to go through those problems to keep up with Atletico Madrid. Zinedine Zidane still questions the power of the midfield. As you may know, French coach does not like rotation of the midfield. Especially in the games of La Liga, Zizou loves playing with the same line-up. Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric midfielder is a favorite part of Real Madrid for Zinedine Zidane.
Fede Valverde is a magical bullet for Zidane. He is using Uruguayan youngsters in big matches to cover the glitches of the midfield. For instance, Valverde was used against Klopp’s Liverpool in Madrid. Fede Valverde was helping Lucas Vazquez in the midfield and helping the attacking line too. Keep in mind that Valverde started the counter attack that led to the first goal of Karim Benzema. At the same time, Zizou used Valverde as a magical bullet in El Clasico. Real Madrid won the game and Fede did his job so well that he could not walk after the game.
Casemiro has to replace Valverde
Zidane can’t use Valverde for the next few days. There are two games in La Liga before the clash against Chelsea. As the Spanish experts write, Real Madrid can get help from Fede because he will be 100% fit. Fede is now in self-isolation as he was in close connection with person X who tested positive for covid-19. Raphael Varane is back in action after covid, so there is a chance for Valverde too. In upcoming games, Casemiro has to play a big role in Real Madrid’s midfield zone.
