Despite their extraordinary start to the season, Real Madrid have had a difficult time with injuries in these early parts of the campaign.

While Vinicius Jr is not expected to return sooner than the October game against Sevilla, there is good news, as far as the injury of Arda Guler.

The new signing from Fenerbahce sustained a knee injury early in the pre-season and had to undergo surgery, meaning he is yet to play a single game for the Merengues.

Guler to make his Real Madrid debut this month

A recent report from Mundo Deportivo has offered an update on the fitness of Guler, suggesting that the youngster could make his Real Madrid debut this month.

As per the report, the young Turk is set to make his comeback on September 27, when Real Madrid take on Las Palmas at Santiago Bernabeu.

Guler, who went through surgery in the middle of August, was expected to be out for at least two months.

But it appears the teenage prodigy has gone through a much faster recovery process than expected, under the supervision of the club doctors.

Real Madrid doctors have taken utmost caution with the player’s recovery, but Guler himself has indicated that he would be ready to make his debut this month.

That could come at the end of the month against Las Palmas, as the youngster finally looks to make a mark in Spanish football.

Real Madrid have already enjoyed immense success with the acquisition of Jude Bellingham. The club will now hope Guler to start offering the goods in the final third as well.

The Turkish international’s return could serve as a real boost for coach Carlo Ancelotti, with the manager and his staff understood to be in awe of the teenager’s abilities.

The Italian mastermind can utilise Guler’s playmaking abilities to add more impetus in Real Madrid’s creative department and ease the pressure on Bellingham in the final third.

Real Madrid rising star suffered against Atletico due to veteran forward’s absence, says Simeone

Real Madrid’s 3-1 defeat to Atletico Madrid was not the first time were in trouble this season. In fact, the Merengues have gone behind early in almost every league game so far.

However, the difference on Sunday night was that they never really mounted a comeback. More importantly, Jude Bellingham did not come good, for the first time.

Simeone unravels the mystery

A jubilant Diego Simeone spoke to the media after his side downed Real Madrid by three goals to one and spoke about a plethora of topics. 

Interestingly, he commented specifically on why Bellingham did not have an impact at Civitas Metropolitano, citing the absence of Joselu as a key factor.

“No, the spaces were reduced and I think that Joselu’s lack of presence left him with fewer chances to get there, when he takes advantage of Joselu’s aerial play. We controlled him better, he’s extraordinary,” he said, as quoted by AS.

He even called out the refereeing on the night and insisted that the Real Madrid star-boy should have seen red for his late tackle on Angel Correa, saying:

“It looked like a sending-off to me live, it was a hard leg up, with Angelito hitting the ball.”

Ironically, he defended his defender Jose Maria Gimenez for an equally threatening tackle on the night.

“A bad foul, it’s a yellow card because it goes sideways. Bellingham goes from the front and I think it’s a bit more,” he stated paradoxically.

No time to lament

The game at Civitas Metropolitano may not have gone Real Madrid’s way. Yet, it is good for the Merengues to taste defeat early and see the gaping holes in their dynamic.

Carlo Ancelotti admitted in his press conference that he bore the lion’s share of the fault for Sunday’s loss and that he would have done things differently if given the chance.

“Maybe I could have done it better. It’s pretty clear. When the team doesn’t do what it has to do, it’s my responsibility,” he stated.

Nevertheless, Los Blancos have a hectic schedule ahead with two games in the next five days and a UCL fixture against Napoli next week. With Vinicius Jr back, one hopes they find their mojo once again.
