Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao to return in April for 2nd LaLiga El Clasico

Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao, who have missed the previous six months due to anterior cruciate ligament injuries, may take up to six weeks to return to play, according to Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Both have resumed training in recent weeks as their comeback draws closer. This might provide Ancelotti’s team an advantage in the last few months of the season as they aim to win La Liga.

“There is no specified date. However, we must make the most of the national team break and the subsequent Copa del Rey minibreak. They will work on team assignments at that point. “They might be there after April 14th, after Mallorca,” Carlo Ancelotti stated during a press conference.

That would indicate that they would make their comeback seven games before the league season ends and before Barcelona’s El Clasico visit to the Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid might play in the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals in April and even beyond if they advance.

Is Real Madrid overachieving this season? was another question posed to Ancelotti.

The team has persevered through hardships, so even with the injuries, we must remember that the best is yet to come—the crucial months of April and May. Militao and Courtois, who are quite close, will make a comeback. This dynamic suggests that the season might be quite promising.

On April 21, one week following the match against Mallorca, Real Madrid will play Barcelona in the El Clasico. And if the defensive pair return before the big game, it might give them a major lift.
