Carvajal breaks

He suffers an injury to his right thigh with tendon involvement and will be out for at least a month and a half. Atalanta is lost, the derby and the objective is the Classic.


Bad luck is primed again with Carvajal, who may be out until the next national team break. The side suffers a muscle injury in the right thigh with tendon involvement, according to the medical report released by Real Madrid this noon. The statement does not specify a recovery period, but the full-back will be away from the pitch for at least a month and a half.

In this scenario, Carvajal can miss five league matches (insurance Valladolid, Real Sociedad, Celta and Atlético) including the expected derby on March 7 and the knockout round for the Champions League against Atalanta. The last league game before the national team break is on March 20 or 21 against Celta in Balaídos and after the FIFA window, Madrid will not resume the competition until the weekend of April 3-4, when Eibar visits the Di Stéfano.

Looking to April with the Classic ... and the quarterfinals of the Champions League

The objective, therefore, is twofold. On the one hand, that Carva is available for the European quarterfinals if Madrid advances (the first leg will be played April 6-7 and the return April 13-14) and especially, the Clásico that will be played in the Di Stéfano on April 11. A duel in itself gigantic and that this time can be key for the League if the whites are tight in the table with Atleti and Barça.

Carvajal had to be substituted yesterday Sunday after 25 minutes of the league game against Valencia. The youth squad returned to the eleven after annoyances that had kept him out of seven games in the last month and a half, since January 2 against Celta.

It is the fourth injury that the youth squad has suffered this season, in which he has barely been able to play 11 of the 31 games played by Real Madrid. An injury to the internal lateral ligament of the right knee had him in the dry dock for a month and a half between October and the first half of November. In total, eight games of absence. He could barely play a couple of games (in Vila-real and Milan) before breaking again. This time his absence was short. A muscle injury in the right adductor muscle kept him out for ten days. The tight schedule resulted in three absentee games and a fourth, the decisive one against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Champions League, in which Zidane kept him on the bench as a precaution.
