Coudet, Celta coach, will have to change half of his starting eleven against Real Madrid

Edward Coudetcoach of Celta de Vigo, will have to modify a good part of his eleven headline ahead of the game against Real Madrid. The Argentine has some important casualties and several doubts that will force him to change up to half of his pieces this Saturday in Sweep. Three players in defence, one in midfield and one up front, are absent or in doubt for various reasons, which is why the coach is going to present a starting team that is very different from the one that drew goalless against Real Betis on the last day of LaLiga Santander .

The first safe change in the starting eleven will be the entry of Kevin Vazquez by Hugo Mallo. The captain suffered a serious injury against Betis, a broken kneecap due to a hard tackle by William Carvalho that will make him miss the entire season. The youth squad born in Nigrán will be his substitute in the nine league games that remain to be played. In the axis of defense, the presence of Jeison Murillo by Néstor Araújo also seems clear. The Aztec center-back, concentrated with his selection, will return to Vigo with a few hours to spare before the match is played.

Nestor Araujo He has not played a single minute against the United States or Honduras. The light blue arrived at the concentration of Mexico touched in the hamstrings, but it was a stomach problem that prevented him from playing in the first of the three games that Mexico faces to get into the World Cup. The last duel, against El Salvador, will help their country qualify for Qatar 2022. They only need a draw to be in the World Cup.

After this meeting, which will be played at dawn from Wednesday to Thursday, Araújo will return to Vigo. In the best of cases, the center-back may be present, to carry out recovery work, in Friday’s session. Hence Jeison Murillo apply as his replacement. Charles DominguezAfter playing against Deportivo, he is also fighting for the left central position but Eduardo Coudet, despite being aware that the Colombian faces his last weeks in Vigo, will bet on maintaining the hierarchy that he himself has imposed in the locker room.

The third change in defense will be the return of Call Prince. The left-back served a one-match suspension against Betis due to the accumulation of yellow cards. His place in the last league match went to Joseph Source. The youth squad will return to the bench against Real Madrid after completing a complicated procedure against players of the level of Bellerín or Canales.

In midfield the big question is to know if Frank Deer can be on time for the game this Saturday. The Argentine trained alone due to plantar fasciitis which has prevented him from playing against Villarreal and Betis. Everything indicates that he will be able to arrive in time for the game and recover his place in the starting eleven. Otherwise Nolito will still be heading ahead of orbelin Pineda.

The fifth planned change is the return to eleven Thiago Gallant. The Brazilian, with almost total certainty, will replace santi Mine. The striker from Vigo is being tried at the Provincial Court of Almería for an alleged sexual assault that occurred in 2017. The trial began on Monday, and will last until Thursday. Although Santi Mina returns to Vigo on Friday, he will not be in a position to face such a highly demanding match on Saturday at Balaídos.
