Joselu Misses Braga Clash Due to Illness as Rodrygo Shines in Starting XI

As Real Madrid secured a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Braga in their recent away fixture, one noticeable absence from the squad was Joselu, who was down with the flu and confined to his hotel room throughout the night. Reports from COPE suggested that Joselu had a tough evening, battling vomiting as he grappled with illness.

Fans were left surprised when Joselu, who had traveled to Portugal with the team, was not even included on the bench for the Braga game, given Coach Carlo Ancelotti’s initial intention to have him partner with Vinicius Jr in the attack.

However, the unexpected turn of events saw Rodrygo step into Joselu’s place in the starting lineup for the match. In a remarkable twist of fate, Rodrygo managed to seize the opportunity, scoring his second goal of the season after an 11-game goal drought.

While Joselu remains in need of medical treatment upon his return to Spain, Real Madrid is gearing up for the much-anticipated El Clasico clash this weekend, leaving fans eager to see how the team will perform in this high-stakes showdown.
