Real Madrid finds themselves in a tough spot due to an injury crisis, but there are solutions available. Brahim and Joselu, who have been on the fringes of the squad, are primed to take on bigger roles due to the absences at the Santiago Bernabéu.
The swelling in Rodrygo’s knee is a short-term issue, and he made the squad for the game against Cádiz (Sun 26 Nov, KO 12.30 p.m. ET / 9.30 a.m. PT.), but Vinicius Jr did not due to a torn hamstring keeping him out until at least February. During this time, Real Madrid’s new duo will have to step up and contribute.
Joselu, already with 5 goals this season, and Brahim, with a goal every 68 minutes, have been performing well together. Joselu, Real Madrid’s number ‘14′, stands out as the only pure striker in the squad, while Brahim has proven to be a like-for-like replacement for the injured midfielder.
In the absence of Vinicius, Brahim also has the chance to gain experience on the right wing, or even in a striker role. This creates an opportunity for the pair to compete for a spot in Real Madrid’s starting XI against Cádiz.
Additionally, there’s the possibility that Ancelotti may opt for a 4-3-3 formation, with Brahim moving to the left and pushing Bellingham back, presenting an aggressive strategy that could be exploited. This upcoming game will provide insight into what Carlo decides to do without his star forward.
