Modric is a doubt to face Real Mallorca

14 Oct 2019

Real Madrid’s injury crisis continues to get worse and worse, with the latest ailment coming as a result of Luka Modric‘s participation in Croatia’s clash with Wales.

The midfielder is now doubtful for the upcoming clash with Real Mallorca on Saturday.

In the 1-1 draw with Gareth Bale‘s side, Modric suffered a blow to his right thigh which forced him out of the match in the late stages, and he will now be forced to wait two to three days to see how the injury develops.

This injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for both the midfielder and Los Blancos.

Despite the fact he is no longer a guaranteed starter, the club face an intense run of fixtures, starting with Real Mallorca and culminating in a trip to the Camp Nou, all with a visit to Istanbul to face Galatasaray sandwiched in between.

As such, Zidane may elect not to risk Modric in the Real Mallorca fixture, although this hardly helps the Frenchman as he also needs to monitor the injury to Toni Kroos and the fact that Casemiro is one booking away from a domestic suspension.
