Real Madrid prepares for the encounter with Mallorca after the Christmas and New Year break. All eyes are on the Los Blancos goal because of the competition for the starting spot between Kepa Arrizabalaga and Andriy Lunin.
In the summer of 2023, Kepa Arrizabalaga landed at the Santiago Bernabeu on loan from Chelsea. Real Madrid identified the Spanish goalkeeper as a ‘firefighting’ solution in the context of Thibaut Courtois being sidelined for a long time due to injury.
Kepa quickly proved his ability and had a regular starting position. Everything turned around when the 29-year-old star was absent due to injury. Lunin was chosen as a replacement, delivering a convincing performance.
Now, coach Ancelotti faces a difficult decision when choosing who will start in Real Madrid’s wooden goal. The latest source from MARCA confirms, Luni is leading Kepa. According to MARCA, Ancelotti will choose Lunin to start the upcoming match between Real Madrid and Mallorca.
A good performance helped Lunin score points in the eyes of Los Blancos coaching staff. A worthy reward for the Ukrainian goalkeeper after his efforts over the past time.
