Real Madrid’s midfield is absolutely stacked. There’s no other way around it. Just look at the options they have: Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Aurelien Tchouameni, Eduardo Camavinga and Fede Valverde. Think of the possibilities. Think of the potential. Think of the combinations the club could try next season. I am so excited.
Camavinga had a slow but decent game against Barcelona. Against Club America, he was really, really good. Of course, the quality of the opposition wasn’t as high this time, but he really showed everyone how good he is, and how much potential he’s keeping in his back pocket. Camavinga was moving towards the ball, he was very silky in possession, he tried to combine with Tchouameni and Valverde, and progress the ball to the attack, while also making huge interceptions and tackles as he always does.
Camavinga is just 19 years old, I think we keep forgetting that whenever we see him play. It’s because it doesn’t seem like it. The man is too good, he’s too good for his age, and once he inevitably reaches his full potential, it is going to be impossible to stop him. This midfield trio of Aurelien Tchouameni, Fede Valverde and Eduardo Camavinga is still young, it’s still very new to playing alongside each other. But, as they improve together, they will surely start to work on the weaknesses that they have as a trio.
Obviously, the midfield lacks some sort of creativity and progressive passing, but I really think that with time, Eduardo Camavinga will be able to become that creative player.
