Rodrygo is set to be on the bench against Manchester City on Wednesday according to the latest reports. The reasoning behind this is that Carlo Ancelotti wants a game changer coming from the bench, according to MARCA. Something that Rodrygo proved to be on numerous occasions.
With Rodrygo on the bench, Fede Valverde is expected to be back on the right side of the attack. Last season, the Uruguayan was Ancelotti’s go to man for that position in a campaign that brought the Champions League back to Madrid.
Rodrygo produced a magical performance coming from the bench last season against the same opponents Los Blancos are facing on Wednesday — Manchester City. It is a performance that Madridistas will never forget.
Real Madrid fans will be hoping for the exact same type of contribution, if the reports by RadioMARCA and MARCA are proven to be correct on Wednesday night.
There are only two days left until the much awaited match-up arrives, a battle that will conclude if Real Madrid will play in their 6th Champions League final over the last 10 years and whether they can add to the Copa del Rey, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup trophies won this season.
