Real Madrid visits Istanbul this Tuesday to face Galatasaray, and does it with some news about its squad list. Toni Kroos returns for the Champions League but not Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Lucas Vázquez
The Real Madrid carried an audible disappointment in LaLiga, but does not have time to regret because it has to react in Champions. The whites lost in Sound Moix and left the leadership, although the urgencies are greater in Europe because it is colista of the Group To, after having added hardly a point after the two first commitments. His visit to Istanbul of this Tuesday has turned into an authentic final.
And in Santiago Bernabéu there have been novelties before the meeting in the Türk Telekom Sand, relative to the announcement of Zinedine Zidane. The preparador marsellés has had to lidiar with the drops practically since it started the season, and in this day will see forced again to make modifications in his alignment because of the absences with which explains the staff, still pending of the infirmary.
The 'merengues' recover to Toni Kroos for the appointment, and also to Dani Carvajal and Eden Hazard. The German completed his recovery during the weekend after falling does some days against the Granada, and to him join the Madrilenian, that rested against the Mallorca, and the Belgian, that could not be in the clash against the bermellones because of his recent paternity, that turned him into drop of last hour.
Luka Modric, Gareth Bleat and Lucas Vázquez, instead, do not arrive to time to the party, and will have to have something more than patience. The Croat and the Welsh returned lesionados to the capital after the stop of selections of October, and although the Galician already exercised beside the group in the last session of trainings, the technician opted for leaving him out of the list, in which they are missing other two stars whose turn will be further.
The physical problems leave was also to Nacho and Marco Asensio, with mishaps of long length that will keep them in the dry dam until further notice. The canterano fell does some weeks and still will have to expect to think his comeback, of the same form that the Balearic, that broke in the pre-season and knows that it will lose big part of the campaign.
The Real Madrid, forced to win to the Galatasaray
The situation of the Real Madrid in Champions still is not totally alarming, but is forced to win to the Galatasaray. Both groups have a point after the dispute of the two first days, whereas the great Witches four and the PSG has attained the plenary and accumulates six. Another trip more than the pupilos of Zidane would aggravate his situation and would complicate the pass to the eliminatory, something that do not want to pose in the capital.
