Following a narrow but crucial win against Real Sociedad courtesy of an early Arda Guler goal, Real Madrid will now shift their attention towards the Champions League once again, where Bayern Munich await them at the Allianz Arena for the first-leg.

With Eder Militao back in the squad after recovering from injury, Madrid are only missing Thibaut Courtois and David Alaba for this tie.

The Brazilian started the game vs Sociedad, but will likely be on the bench for the first-leg, with Carlo Ancelotti and the coaching staff’s intention to slowly re-integrate him into the team.

Ferland Mendy was ruled out of the Sociedad game due to a knock, but is back in the squad list and will likely start the game as the left-back against Bayern. The Frenchman has been in fine form through the last few months.

Aurelien Tchouameni has also served his one-game suspension, missing the second-leg vs Manchester City. He returns to the team and is definitely in contention to start the Bayern clash.

After unveiling the final squad for France for the upcoming European Championship, coach Didier Deschamps appeared in front of the media to discuss the nation’s preparations for the tournament.

Deschamps was notably asked about Kylian Mbappe and his potential move to Real Madrid in the coming summer.

Deschamps on Mbappe announcement

When asked when Real Madrid may announce the signing of Mbappe, the French coach replied (h/t L’Equipe), “They will decide when it’s time to make it official. As far as possible, I will adapt to the squad.”

This comes on the back of earlier reports which claim that Real Madrid are desperate to announce the signing of Mbappe before the start of Euro 2024.

The coveted tournament begins June 14, though France’s opening game is on June 18 as they take on Austria in the city of Dusseldorf.

Deschamps also dismissed concerns over Mbappe’s form, stating, “You don’t find Kylian Mbappé in good shape? He only scored 44 goals in the season. It’s true that he could have done better.”

Deschamps on Tchouameni’s fitness

As things stand, a total of three Real Madrid players are a part of the France squad for the European Championship.

One of them is Aurelien Tchouameni, who picked up a knock earlier this month which could keep him out of the upcoming Champions League final.

Deschamps, though, is not worried about his fitness and is hopeful of having the midfielder back for the Euros.

“Tchouaméni? I’m not worried. The deadline is too short for the UCL final but for the Euro it’s more than doable,” he said.
