and says Real Madrid might feel his absence in their match against Gian Piero Gasperini’s team.

“He is fundamental for Zidane, he is a complete midfielder,” Capello said.

“Casemiro is dangerous inside the box with his headers and the other two midfielders are always comfortable when he plays because they have more attacking duties. I coached [Marcel] Desailly and I can say Casemiro is just the same.”
