Hugo Duro has only been with Castilla for three months, but it could be enough time to take the big jump to the first team and debut in the Champions League against Inter. Zidane could count on the Spaniard in place of Benzema.
Real Madrid visit Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday 25th November at 21:00, a match that Zidane will have to face with too many absences in the team.
That’s why the French manager could make use of the B team for the European match, a moment in which the young 21-year-old striker Hugo Duro would enter the scene.
As ‘Marca’ state, the Spanish attacker of Castilla is the big candidate to join the Madrid expedition in place of Karim Benzema and travel to Italy.
But who is Hugo Duro? After being made in the Getafe youth system and playing 32 official matches for the first team, the under 21 international arrived in Madrid in the summer, signing a contract with Castilla, the team that he has now played 4 matches with, scoring 3 times.
The young forward has already trained under the orders of Zidane, who could count on the Spaniard if, in the end, the Frenchman doesn’t make it in time for the big game.
