Danilo or Carvajal?

Danilo or Carvajal?


Real Madrid have a very complete squad this year. Zinedine Zidane has covered all the positions of the field with two possible players. The French manager has many doubts when he must choose the starting 11 for a match because all the players of the sqaud are prepared to play.

The position where Zidane has more doubts is in the right back. Los Blancos have covered very well this position. Dani Carvajal and Danilo are the two players who can play. Both have shown that they can play in Real Madrid and as the time passes the manager has more doubts in who must trust to be the right back in the important matches.

With the game of the national teams, Zidane made many changes in his line-up. Yesterday it was the opportunity for Danilo. He didn´t play any match in the league and this one was a perfect chance for him. The Brazilian player performed a great match against Osasuna. He defended very good and he even scored a goal. Zidane talked after the game about the good game of Danilo.

Danilo was signed 2 years ago with Real Madrid. He was one of the most important players in Porto and Real Madrid signed him for €30M. Last year Danilo played 24 games in La Liga and 7 in Champion League. Danilo couldn´t finish the year in the starting 11 but it seems that this year he he has adapted well to what Zidane wants and can “fight” with Carvajal for the position.

Carvajal has been here many years. The youngster right back has become in one of the best right defenders in the world. Real Madrid gave him on loan to Germany to have minutes and grow as a player. When Real Madrid noticed that his player was being one of the best players in the Bundesliga, they didn´t doubt to buy the Spaniard back. This year is the fourth season of Carvajal in Madrid and every year he is improving more and more, being a key player for Zidane.

Let’s see what decision Zidane makes about these two players. The only thing we can say is that this are good news for Real Madrid because it´s synonymous that Real Madrid have a great team.


  1. Carvajal posseses more qualities than Danilo…
    His ability to swiftly attack his opponent and return back to his position
    His ability to long cross/volley the ball
    He is hardly physical
    Not easily dribbled by his opponents
    Amongst many things more….
