Real Madrid squad list vs Athletic Club: Alaba one of 11 absentees! – Marca English

Real Madrid‘s final game of 2021 is set to be a challenge, with David Alaba missing out on a place in the squad to face Athletic Club at San Mames on Wednesday night.

Carlo Ancelotti is already without a number of first-team players due to the new Omicron variant which is decimating football across the continent, and Alaba is just the latest to miss a game even though he is yet to test positive.

Gareth Bale, Isco, Marcelo, Rodrygo Goes and Andriy Lunin are all out with COVID-19 already and Dani Carvajal is injured, while Casemiro is suspended having received too many yellow cards. Dani Ceballos is not yet ready to return, too.

Luka Modric tested positive before returning a negative test, and he is still not ready to return just yet. Real Madrid also have assistant coach Davide Ancelotti unavailable after he tested positive for COVID-19.
