Defensive crisis for Real Madrid! Carlo Ancelotti reveals Antonio Rudiger’s injury and David Alaba could be out of Girona match

Real Madrid are in an injury crisis in defense after Ancelotti revealed problems affecting centre-backs Rudiger and Alaba.

although Los Blancos won another comfortable 2-0 win over Las Palmas on Wednesday after last weekend’s derby defeat to Atlético de Madrid, their victory turned somewhat sour as their two centre-backs were injured in this La Liga match.

Alaba suffered a groin injury and had to be replaced by Lucas Vázquez in the 40th minute, while Rüdiger suffered a blow, but his injury could be slightly less serious than that of his defense partner.

“(Antonio) Rudiger has some discomfort. We think it’s a blow, he thinks he’ll be fine for Saturday. Alaba has an adductor problem, I don’t think he will be there,” Ancelotti told reporters after the match reporters. .

Real Madrid do not have Eder Militao due to a long-term injury and now Alaba and Rüdiger are also on his list. This leaves Ancelotti with only one suitable central defender: Nacho. However, Dani Carvajal returns to the selection, as he has recovered satisfactorily from a muscle injury.

It remains to be seen how Ancelotti prepares his defense for a difficult trip to Catalonia to face league leaders Girona, who are still unbeaten after the first seven rounds.
