This stoppage of selections has left Ancelotti without centrals. If last Wednesday Brazil informed Madrid that Militao suffers a muscle injury on the back of the right leg, this Thursday the white club receives another bad news, David Alaba is seriously touched.
- Real Madrid
The Austrian suffered a severe blow to the knee during his country’s match against Denmark and although the first examination rules out a major problem, it does makes him doubt at least for the match against Shakhtar on the 21st. White doctors will follow Alaba’s evolution but it is a type of injury that depends largely on the sensations of the footballer. This afternoon he is scheduled to pass a test by the Madrid doctors.
Double stick for the center, because he has also been fired almost with total probability of the Qatar World Cup. Austria comes out of this break third seven points behind Scotland with only two games to play, so mathematically they are left without a direct ticket and without a possible repechage. The only remote option is to win one of the two places reserved for the third parties that have obtained the best coefficient in the last Nations League. Austria and Alaban will have to wait to see who the other third parties are, but at the moment it is very difficult for Madrid to show off the Austrian in the big event next year.
Die Niederlage gestern war eine Enttäuschung. Gemeinsam wollten wir mehr bei dieser WM-Quali. Wir wollten einen der ersten beiden Plätze in unserer Gruppe erreichen, haben dies aber leider nicht geschafft. pic.twitter.com/HS6gB260l1

At least and although the defense is in the frame, there is also more positive news for Real Madrid. This break has finished serving for Mendy and Marcelo to recover definitively, they have not relapsed during the couple of sessions at a good pace that they have been able to carry out and although they are without filming, they are suitable to play against Shakhtar.
