Eder Militao is low in the Brazil’s selection and was ruled out to face Uruguay for the Qualifiers, confirmed this Wednesday the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF). The defender has a “contusion” in the posterior region of the thigh of the right leg. With this, it is in doubt for Real Madrid’s match for the Champions League against Shakhtar (10/19) and for the classic against Barcelona for LaLiga (10/24).
The defender was injured last Sunday during Brazil’s match against the Colombian team played at the Metropolitan Stadium in Barranquilla, which ended with a goalless draw. Some imaging tests have found a contusion in the damaged area, so Militao will not train this Wednesday with the ‘Canarinha’ nor will he be summoned for the clash against the Celeste, indicated the CBF.
The entity pointed out that the doctor of the Brazilian team, Rodrigo Lasmar, has contacted the medical department of Real Madrid to inform him of the situation of the player, head of the white team led by Carlo Ancelotti.
The Spanish classic will be played on October 24, when Real Madrid visit a completely full Camp Nou after relaxing the anticovid measures. The merengue team awaits the return of Militao to submit him to new tests and clarify his approximate time of absence.
With the resignation of Militao, the Brazilian coach, Tite, is expected to put Thiago Silva and Lucas Veríssimo in the center of the rear against the Uruguayan team, which they will receive at the Arena de la Amazonia stadium, in the city of Manaus .
Brazil is the leader of the Qualifiers towards Qatar 2022 with 28 points, six more than its immediate pursuer, Argentina, and is very close to closing its mathematical classification for the next World Cup. However, fans and sports commentators have poured harsh criticism against the game of ‘Scratch’, especially after the last two games against Venezuela, despite the 1-3 victory, and Colombia, against which they gave up two points after nine wins in a row.
