Camavinga well present
Out on injury against Getafe, Eduardo Camavinga is also in the game. The former Rennais, who has become essential in the Madrid eleven, had received a blow to the knee. But obviously nothing serious. Also note the presence of the two masters to play from the White House, Toni Kroos and Luka Modric, who should both start on Wednesday.
