Real Madrid are unbeaten in all competitions this season, and they will play RB Leipzig in the Champions League hoping to extend their unblemished record. However, this time the club faces a test that might interrupt their unbeaten record.

Much of the credit for the run may be ascribed to the availability of a more or less fit roster, which allowed Real to use their top players to win matches. However, for the forthcoming encounter against Leipzig, the injury list has grown as important players are ruled out, thus jeopardizing Real’s potential to win the game.

Fede Valverde, who suffered a setback against Sevilla, Karim Benzema, and Dani Ceballos are the names who have not been included to the squad for the forthcoming game, but there is another Castilla player who has made his way into the first team.

The young phenom, Sergio Arribas, is now on the roster for the first team. Arribas is widely recognised among Castilla followers as one of those players who is too excellent to play for a youth team now, but his promotion to the first team continues getting delayed for one reason or another. However, due to the absence of important players, this game may be his first opportunity to see first-team action.

Because of his flexibility, Arribas makes an even greater argument for Champions League minutes. He can play just as well on the wings as he can in offensive middle. The player occasionally drops deep with Castilla, which adds to his remarkable resume and makes it impossible to ignore him.

Because Real Madrid will only need a draw against Leipzig to win the group, Carlo Ancelotti is anticipated to rotate the squad and rest important players, further cementing Arribas’ case.

Fans have been longing to see Arribas play for the senior team, and this might be the great chance for the youngster to play where he belongs.
