In the midfield section of Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid, there are two untouchable players since the season has started. Casemiro and Kroos are the players who have rested the least at the start of this season and they have played practically every minute of every game.
Casemiro has only missed 30 minutes so far this season with Real Madrid and is also a key player for Brazil. He has been called up again for his national team and now there is a worry he could be fatigued or get injured.
This was confirmed against Levante. Real Madrid suffer without Casemmiro, and not precisely for the better. The Brazilian midfielder is vital, irreplaceable and the team unspeakably suffers without him.
Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane, justified his first two changes (Casemiro and Sergio Ramos) when the hour had passed in the game against Levante, saying it was due to exhaustion of the Brazilian and some discomfort in the captain's foot.
Karim Benzema's brace and Casemiro's goal gave Real Madrid three points in a 3-2 victory over Levante at the Santiago Bernabeu in La Liga. The home side were 3-0 up at the interval, but Borja Mayoral and Gonzalo Melero set up a grandstand finish in the Spanish capital.
