Real Madrid top defender confirm’s injured
Real Madrid’s Champions League campaign against Celtic was marred by yet another defeat and as a direct consequence of this and the team has received additional dismal information regarding their injury situation.
Despite the fact that Los Blancos were victorious in Glasgow by a score of 3-0 and they were dealt a significant blow when star striker Karim Benzema sustained an injury in the first half of the match.
This was a significant setback for Los Blancos and despite this, the team were able to prevail and take first place in the competition.
The severity of the Frenchman’s injury makes it highly likely that he won’t be able to play in the Madrid derby the following Sunday and it’s also possible that he won’t be able to play for the White Angels for two weeks.
According to Diario AS the light muscular injury that was described as having been incurred by the Brazilian player was actually sustained by the Brazilian defender Eder Militao and In addition Antonio Rudiger came on in place of Militao as soon as the whistle blew to indicate the conclusion of the first half of the game.
It is unknown when exactly he will be able to return to competition but it is anticipated that he will be in a position to do so in the Madrid derby. Meanwhile he is going to take some time off in order to relax before the games that will take place against Mallorca the following weekend and RB Leipzig the week after that.
Carlo Ancelotti has an easy replacement option open to him in Rudiger, and despite the fact that it is not ideal, the possibility that Militao will not be at his peak level of fitness against Atletico Madrid does not bar Carlo Ancelotti from using Rudiger in this match.
