Good news are underway for Real Madrid. Mourinho was forced to play a new defensive line with Carvalho, Essien, Varane and Arbeloa against Real Sociedad, but he will have two more center backs to choose from against Celta Vigo. Sergio Ramos is back after being suspended one game with the yellow card he saw against Málaga, and so is Raúl Albiol, who was injured since the second game against Alcoyano, where he suffered an ankle sprain in the first ten seconds of the game.
Marcelo will also be available soon, but not yet. His injury was severe, as he missed three months of action. It's better for Real Madrid's coaching staff to be patient with his ankle, but he returned to practice Monday. That should solve some of Real Madrid's offensive struggles, since the Brazilian's contribution to Real Madrid's attack is very valuable.
Welcome Marcelo and Raúl Albiol back.
