Ancelotti risks: Vinicius starting in the Champions League final after two days of fever

The countdown for the Champions League final is about to come to an end. At 9pm this evening one between real Madrid And Borussia Dortmund will raise the 2023-24 European Cup to the skies and rise to the top of Europe. On the one hand the merengues in search of the 15th Big Ears Cup in history, on the other the yellow and black Germans who want to take revenge after the final lost in 2023 again at Wembley but against Bayern Munich.

However, once the official line-ups for the high-voltage match in London were made official, a choice by Carlo Ancelotti was very impressive: Vinicius Junior started from the first minute. A surprise not in terms of names, but of physical form: according to what was revealed by Relevo, Real’s Brazilian ace had a fever on Thursday and Friday. There was also some concern among the player’s entourage about the condition of their client, but the player did his best to recover in time for the Champions League final and the medicines he took had an effect.

Today he woke up better – we read – and without tenths higher than normal. And then it’s time to take the field at Wembley as a starter, with the usual number 7 shirt on his shoulders, with the aim of raising his second European cup to the sky at just 23 years of age. A glittering showcase, because in case of victory the chances of winning the next Ballon d’Or would certainly increase.
