Carvajal expected to be out for two months due to knee injury

02 Oct 2020

There is more bad injury news for Real Madrid, as Dani Carvajal has suffered an injury to his medial collateral ligament.

The right-back has gone for tests and these have confirmed the injury, meaning he is expected to miss around two months of action.

“Following tests carried out on Dani Carvajal by the Real Madrid medical services, he has been diagnosed with an injury to his medial collateral ligament in his right knee and his recovery will continue to be assessed,” read a statement released by the club.

This means that Alvaro Odriozola – who started against Real Valladolid in midweek – will have to step up, but the positive for Real Madrid is that the Basque defender is in this season’s squad, considering they spent the second half of 2019/20 with no backup right-back due to his loan at Bayern Munich.

Other options to replace Carvajal during these next weeks are right winger Lucas Vazquez and left-back Ferland Mendy.

Carvajal will miss El Clasico because of this injury, while he should also miss other LaLiga Santander fixtures against LevanteCadizHuescaValencia and Villarreal and the first four Champions League group stage games.
