Carlo Ancelotti will have to face this two-month competition at the end of the year without Tchouameni, the player who best adapts to the position of central midfielder. The Frenchman was injured in the Barcelona – Real Madrid match, but continued to play. “After the tests carried out on our player Aurélien Tchouameni at the Real Madrid Medical Services, he was diagnosed with an incomplete stress fracture of the second metatarsal of his left foot. The evolution is pending,” said the medical report of white club on Sunday, after the French midfielder underwent tests to determine the true extent of his injury.
The most logical choice now for Carlo Ancelotti is Camavinga who enters Tchouameni’s position and plays as a central midfielder, which is the place where he wants to position himself and the one where, according to the Italian coach , he did best. However, in big games it is difficult for Ancelotti not to play Camavinga at left back. He reckons he’s not too beatable in defense and, on the other hand, he gets a lot of possession.
Starting from that side of the field, Camavinga can be seen everywhere, he takes up a lot of space and his deployment surprises everyone. His role in the Barcelona – Real Madrid match was decisive in changing the course of the game. He came off the field and from that moment, Real Madrid felt that they were gaining positions until they got back.
Now, Camavinga has the time to show his position in the center of the field, because there is no other player in the squad who can perform that role with the physical appearance of the French. In addition, Modric, with a small midfield rotation, has more options to play more minutes.
The television cameras caught Tchouameni’s injury and it is clear that he was not injured alone, but it happened because of an incident with a Barcelona player: Gavi. The Barça football player, who fought with Vinicius and Bellingham during the Classic, stepped on him in a fight for the ball and from that moment, Tchouameni spent the game in pain.
For many Madrid fans in the networks, it is no coincidence that Gavi is the protagonist of the action and they consider that the game is not as fun as it is. However, Tchouameni was very clear: “It’s not Gavi’s fault. I was injured at the end of the first half.”
