Predicted Real Madrid XI vs Juventus: Antonio Rudiger to miss out after two straight starts in US tour.
Before beginning their competitive campaign this year, Real Madrid must pass one last preseason test. Los Blancos will play Juventus in the last match of their preseason tour of the United States.
Since Los Blancos have already drew 2-2 with Club America and lost 1-0 to Barcelona, Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping his team can find some momentum against La Vecchia Signora.
Real Madrid will travel to their home city of Madrid following tonight’s game (04:00 CEST) in order to prepare for their European Super Cup showdown against Eintracht Frankfurt on August 10.
Diario AS claims that Ancelotti will probably start without Antonio Rudiger. The Italian had previously informed the media that Real Madrid will use the same lineup it did against Eintracht.
David Alaba, Eder Militao, and Ferland Mendy, who were previously listed as his top choices for left-back and center defense, respectively, will make up the defense.
Dani Carvajal, who only started exercising again on Thursday after experiencing an ankle problem, is the major question.
While Fede Valverde will continue to play on the right side of midfield, as he did in the Champions League final, AS believes he will be fit. Rodrygo will take the place of the impact.
Rudiger was viewed as the favorite to gain a spot in Real Madrid’s starting lineup, but it appears he will have to wait. For positions in the backline that he lacked in the previous season, Ancelotti will at least face competition.
