We failed to get an idea of the performance of Eduardo Camavinga, who, to “celebrate” his 20th birthday, only walked on the lawn of the Santiago-Bernabeu stadium for about ten minutes with Real Madrid (against Cadiz, 2). -1, Thursday in La Liga), Didier Deschamps and his staff necessarily carefully observed the behavior of two of the other midfielders selected from among the Blues for the World Cup in Qatar (November 20-December 18).
Because Aurélien Tchouaméni (22 years old, 14 caps, 1 goal) and Adrien Rabiot (27 years old, 29 caps, 2 goals), they played 90 minutes. And especially because it will be two owners of the French team, in the absence (due to injuries) of N’Golo Kanté and Paul Pogba. The ex-Monegasque did not really shine in the first period with Real Madrid, lacking a bit of aggressiveness and above all precision, as with this pass to Rodrygo in the area (17th) or on a shot that was too high (25th) .

On the other hand, he was more bloody in the second half, showing with an excellent ball against Lucas Vazquez (63rd), then with a recovery full of power and authority in the central circle, against two opponents (66th). In the end, his performances at guard, with the usual Toni Kroos (brilliant and efficient, with a goal and an assist) and Luka Modric by his side, proved to be very correct.

On the pitch in Hellas Verona with Juventus Turin (who won 1-0), Adrien Rabiot has married a little with the same curve. In the semitone of the first period, the “Duke” increased the pace significantly in the second period, where he could have achieved a double of assists if Moïse Kean had converted the first (58th), a center with a line after an authoritarian recovery.
But the former PSG striker scored first in the second (61st), successfully right-footed by the left-handed midfielder. Although Juve faltered at the end of the Serie A final, Rabiot remained strong until the end, scoring a total of five goals this season (three in the league, two in C1) and an assist.
