Real Madrid's injury list has extended further, with key defender Dani Carvajal being the latest addition, sidelining him for at least a month.
Dani Carvajal, the experienced Spanish right-back for Real Madrid, is set to miss at least a month of action due to injury. This setback adds to the growing list of injured players at the club, making Carvajal the eighth player currently unavailable for manager Carlo Ancelotti. In his absence, Lucas Vazquez, primarily a winger, is expected to fill in as the right-back.
Real Madrid is facing a significant challenge with injuries to key players, including Luka Modrić, Vinicius Jr., Eduardo Camavinga, Arda Güler, Thibaut Courtois, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Eder Militao, in addition to Carvajal. This situation tests the depth and resilience of Ancelotti's squad as they navigate a busy schedule leading up to the winter break.
Despite the injury setbacks, Real Madrid remains in good form, leading La Liga and having secured five wins in five Champions League group stage matches. They have already advanced to the knockout stages from Group C. Upcoming matches include a La Liga fixture against Real Betis and a Champions League clash with Union Berlin.
