Real Madrid will face German RB Leipzig as a guest in the 5th round of the Champions League. Carlo Ancelotti’s team will play without Karim Benzema and Luka Modric in this match.
At the pre-match press conference, Ancelotti was asked if the players are careful to avoid injuries before the World Cup 2022. The Italian specialist had this answer:
“To start with, there are injuries in the world of football. If you don’t want to get injured, you have to lay on the couch. You can get injured in training, when you collide with a teammate. If someone tells me that he is afraid of getting injured, he can stay at home and watch a TV series or a movie. My players are in good shape before the World Cup. Therefore, they want to go and you’re in good shape only if you keep playing. The ones we’re missing in Leipzig are only because they’re a little uncomfortable and we didn’t want to risk it. I’d rather lose Benzema or Modric for a game than a month. Eventually, they’ll all be back against Girona on Sunday. Including Ceballos,” Ancelotti said.
Finally, it is important to remember that Real Madrid won the right to play in the 1/8 finals of the Champions League in the previous round, but they still need to get points to take first place in the group. We’d like to remind you that the World Cup 2022 will begin on November 20.
