Real Madrid seem short in attack this season, as there seems to be a lack of depth in the forward position.

Real Madrid only brought in Joselu on loan, after losing Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio during the summer.

Ancelotti is intent on playing a 4-4-2 system this season, with Rodrygo and Vinicius Jr as his two forwards, while Joselu is a back-up.

With Vinicius getting injured, the Los Blancos seem short in attack, but Carlo Ancelotti has said that there’s no cause for alarm.

He said: “This squad is proving that it’s complete. We’re capable of winning without Courtois, Militão, Karim and Vini.

“This shows that the squad is well assembled. They’ve done well.”

He also said: “The attack is taken care of. We’ve scored six goals without Karim and without Vini.

“That means we have what we need. I thought about sending Brahim on but I preferred to keep a balance to avoid any surprises at the end.”
