After Eric Garcia gave away a penalty in the opening three minutes of the game against Eintracht Frankfurt, Barcelona were always going to be on the back foot.

However, what they did not expect was that the Germans were going to be so ruthless, that too at the Camp Nou. Moments of individual brilliance from Filip Kostic and Rafael Borre won them the tie 4-3 on aggregate.

In fact, the scoreline does not justice to their performance, for they were the better teams for nearly 150 minutes out of 180.

Watching it all from home, Real Madrid fans were quick to jump on the opportunity to laugh at them.

Having been 0-3 down at home a few days ago themselves against Chelsea, Los Blancos turned the tie around to qualify for the UCL semi-finals.

It comes as a blow to Gerard Pique, especially, who was quick to tweet, “We are back” at the full-time whistle after their 0-4 routing of Real Madrid.

Barcelona will now host Cadiz at the Camp Nou on the weekend in what is expected to be a terribly low turnout, especially after tonight.

Eder Militao has charted a remarkable recovery to return from an ACL injury he suffered on the first day of the 2023/24 season.

The Brazilian international came back to action in late March, featuring for a couple of minutes against Athletic Club – the very team against whom he had sustained the injury.

Following that, the centre-back has also featured sparingly in games against Mallorca and Manchester City, although he is yet to start a game.

Ancelotti has plan for Militao

Now, AS reports that Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has devised a plan for Militao to be ready to go when the team face Bayern Munich later this month in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg.

Militao is expected to play an important role in the Champions League semi-finals. The coaching staff is counting on him to reinforce the team’s defensive capabilities.

The first phase of his reintegration into the dynamics of the competition, which was more psychological than physical, has already been completed.

Ancelotti, who has now drawn up a special plan to give him minutes in order to get him ready (physically) for the semi-finals.

First Militao will be used in the Clásico today, depending on how the game goes. Then against Real Sociedad next week, on this occasion, the Brazilian could even likely be a starter.

At centre-back or right-back

Militao will have options to play against Bayern Munich in the centre of defence, alongside Antonio Rudiger, but also at right-back, as Dani Carvajal will miss the game because he picked up his third yellow card of the season at the Etihad.

It will all depend on how the Brazilian performs in the two remaining games against Barça and Real Sociedad before the UCL semi-final first leg on 30 April.

For the second leg, on 8 May, at the Bernabeu, Militao will compete on equal terms with the rest of the back four. There will be one more game between the two contests, against Cadiz, for him to get minutes. That’s what Ancelotti is counting on with the Brazilian.
