REAL MADRID | DEFENSIVE PROBLEMS

"Houston, we have a problem". Or this in the REAL MADRID case,  a defensive wing problem on both sides. Regular flankers have been injured with National Team duties, left-back MARCELO with Brazil & out 3 months, his natural substitute COENTRAO injured with Portugal & right-back ARBELOA injured agianst France & out around 3 weeks.

This will force Coach Mournho to reset his defensive line & move around players. For the left-back position there are two juniors which could possibly be called up: Casado & Nacho. For the right-back Sergio Ramos or Essien look more in line to fill this spot , with Varane in as the central with Pepe. Having said this, Varane or Albiol could be put in the right-back position, & some even think that Di Maria may do.

Whatever of the multiple combinations Real Madrid has a situation that needs to be cleared & solved as they have Liga this weekend & Champions mid-week. The defence is perhaps the "weaker" aspect of their game & the opposition teams may exploit this "quick entry point". It will be interesting to see what formula Mourinho cames up with to mend the "split" defensive line.
