Real Madrid Confirms Vinicius Junior’s Return For Derby Against Atletico Madrid


The primary topic of conversation surrounding Real Madrid on the night of the derby was whether Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior would be totally fit for the crucial away game against Atletico Madrid at Metropolitano Stadium. Now that all the questions have been answered, Los Blancos may rejoice in a lot of good news.

Real Madrid has revealed their lineup for the contest. Bellingham and Vinicius have both been incorporated into it.

Since suffering a hamstring injury during Real Madrid’s match against Celta Vigo, Vinicius Junior has been sidelined. However, he recently participated in team training and has since rejoined the group.

Bellingham, on the other hand, recently had to miss training due to a stomach condition. It was definitely a worrying situation because the Englishman has been Real Madrid’s star player since his arrival in the summer. Fortunately, it appears that the issue has been resolved as well.

According to ESPN, Carlo Ancelotti addressed Vinicius’ position in his pre-game statement and said the following:

“The injury is forgotten.

“He’ll be in the squad. Tomorrow we’ll see what role he plays in the game.”

Initially, Vinicius was supposed to skip the game. Ancelotti responded to a query regarding the dangers of bringing the 23-year-old superstar back for this match by saying:

“The risk is zero.

“If we think there’s a 1% risk tomorrow we won’t take it. The important thing is Vinicius has recovered. He lacks a bit of conditioning but that’s normal.”

Ancelotti also dispelled any lingering uncertainty on the Englishman’s predicament. The Italian said:

“It was a small thing.

“He felt ill but he’s recovered.”

Because players like Ferland Mendy, Dani Ceballos, and Vinicius are now all back in the lineup, Real Madrid will undoubtedly feel some relief following their injury problems at the beginning of the season. Also soon will be Arda Guler’s return to action.

They should benefit from this as they prepare to face Atletico Madrid at the Metropolitano Stadium. Although this is by far the most difficult test they have faced this season thus far, maybe they can continue their winning streak.
