In order to play, Éder Militao must test negative six hours before Tuesday’s game for the Champions League.
Éder Militao tested positive for coronavirus in the test to which the Real Madrid players were subjected, following the protocol established for Tuesday’s duel against Inter by Lautaro Martínez, for the Champions League.
The Brazilian center-back, according to what is stipulated by UEFA, should deliver a test negative six hours before the start of the match or you will miss that key match for the future White in European competition.
Although it seems obvious that he will not be against the Italian team, since his inconclusive positive has turned positive again. His absence will join those of Carvajal, Odriozola and Nacho, who will miss the duel against Inter. Lucas, Varane, Ramos, Mendy and Marcelo are the only defenders available for Zinedine Zidane.
After beating Huesca in LaLiga, Real Madrid set their minds on an unexpected final in the Champions League, on their third matchday. A single point out of six possible leaves Zidane’s team last in the group and with the obligation to beat Inter if they want to keep options to finish the group stage first or advance second to the round of 16.
The Madrid coach’s attention is focused on Lucas Vázquez, who was substituted against Huesca due to a muscular overload and medical tests are awaited to know if he suffers an injury.
Zidane will not recover any of his injuries for the Champions League. Dani Carvajal and Nacho Fernández are already working on the pitch alongside Norwegian Martin Odegaard and Álvaro Odriozola, but outside of a group that completed a training session that consisted of exercises with the ball and shots on goal.
This Monday he will carry out the last training session in his sports city before receiving Inter at the Alfredo di Stéfano stadium, in a session in which Zidane will bring together all his available players. The return to the starting team of Toni Kroos is expected.
