Casemiro, the first player to get to 1000 minutes
Real Madrid has played eleven official matches this campaign. In total, 990 minutes, including added time, of which Casemiro has only missed half an hour.
Zinedine Zidane is aware of the Brazilian's importance in his squad. Between the exits and injuries, Casemiro has been the only reliable player in Real Madrid's midfield since the start of the campaign.
With the presence of Fede Valverde, Casemiro will be able to take a breather, especially when it seems that Kroos and Modric could be fit for the next meetings. In the meantime, the Brazilian will continue to be the most important player on the pitch.
In fact, if Casemiro plays at least 40 minutes against Galatasaray on Tuesday, he will become the first player in the squad to exceed 1,000 minutes. Second in the table is Karim Benzema with 882 minutes.
