Real Madrid, who need just one point to win La Liga this season, will be without three key defenders in Saturday’s clash with Espanyol.
“The White King” is set to win the title this season after leading the table by 15 points clear of second place Barcelona with five ufabet games remaining. Resulting in a draw against Parrots on Saturday 30. This April will be enough to win the championship immediately.
But coach Carlo Ancelotti will not be able to use several defensive players since Eder Militao and Nacho Fernandez are suspend.
While David Alaba has fitness problems. It was also not at risk as the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City awaits in midweek.
That required the solution to push Carlos Casemiro, the newly fit Brazilian midfielder. Who came back to play at centre-back alongside Jesus Vallejo.
Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti admitted that his side has “problems in the defence”. The Los Blancos will welcome Espanyol at Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday, knowing. They need just one point to secure the La Liga title.
But both sides are heading into the contest on the back of defeats. As Anceloti’s side suffered a 4-3 loss against Manchester City in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.
While Espanyol lost 1-0 to Rayo Vallecano on April 21. Real Madrid are by far the best team in Spain this term, winning 24 games, drawing six and losing just three. But the team’s defence hasn’t been great, having conceded 11 goals in their last four games across all competitions.
