Real Madrid fans will be breathing a sigh of reprieve as Eder Militao trained with the rest of the squad just ahead of the Shakhtar clash. It is expected that the Brazilian defender will be completely fit ahead of the UCL clash in the midweek as Real Madrid travels to Ukraine.
Not only will he be playing in the UCL clash, but his availability will also be acting as a catalyst in the upcoming El Clasico as his absence in the rearguard exposed a lot of glaring leaks which needed some desperate plugging.
Update on David Alaba and Militao as the UCL clash arrives
David Alaba has also shown signs of relative improvement, as he scored an absolute screamer for Canada in the international break. The availability of both these stars, including Militao will provide a sense of reliability to a sloppy Madrid defence.
The fact that two of their starting defenders will be available for Madrid’s clash in the UCL against Shakhtar who has proven to be a major thorn in Madrid’s flesh in the near past will make a lot of visages smile.
Latest words on Carvajal and his availability for the El Clásico
Things, however, aren’t looking as promising for Dani Carvajal as he is still to train with the squad and will be needing a few minutes in the midweek before he can make the cut for El Clásico.
Madrid has been left reeling in the wake of three dismal performances that has seen them getting drubbed twice.
To make matters worse, they were stunned by Sheriff in the UCL despite an inspiring showdown in the attack. The latest update on the availability of Alaba and Eder Militao means that the defensive concerns can now be taken care of with Nacho playing the stopgap right-back.
