Lucas Vazquez’s improvement has been one of the keys to Real Madrid’s ascent in the table. The right back’s return depends on his recovery, but as we are near the end of the season, everything seems to indicate that he will not be back this term.
This season, Lucas Vazquez has played 34 matches in all competitions with seven assists and Zidane spoke very positively of his development since Dani Carvajal’s injury.
Luckily for the French coach, Carvajal, who missed the ‘Clasico’ as a precaution has basically recovered and could be back for the second leg of the Champions League against Liverpool
