LIV vs RMA : With Carvajal and Vazquez out of the clash, Here are FOUR ways Zidane can replace them

Real Madrid will hope to finish the job when they visit Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday. Real Madrid are in superb form, unbeaten in their last 13 games drawing just 2 out of those. They beat Liverpool 3-1 in the first leg of the competition however, the tie is not over.

Zidane will however be worried about the right back position. The first choice and second choice options Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez are both Injured. Zidane will look for a way not to make the right side vulnerable.

Here are 4 ways Zidane can start the game

1) Use Marcelo as a left back and Mendy as a right back. Zidane has used this before and it worked out. However, Using Marcelo Against Salah might be dangerous.

2) place his trust on Odriozola. The spaniard came in for Vazquez Against Barcelona and we all saw how rusty he was. Zidane may however have to trust him

3) Another option is if Zidane uses the 3-5-2 formation. That way, Militao can be covering for Odriozola as well.

4) This option can only work if Valverde is fit enough to start given that he also got Injured Against Barcelona. Casemiro can play at centerback while Nacho at Right back. I don't think Zidane will want to risk this option with Nacho form in the center back.
