After Barcelona, it is Real Madrid’s turn to keep up with their injury quota. And the news from the center suggests that it is Luca Modrić who has suffered an injury.
Real Madrid has had their fair share of injuries this season. They started off the season without their ace striker Karim Benzema. Later their defender Eder Militao also was ruled out for several matches. And made a return against Atletico last week.
Even Benzema has been reported to be training with the team. So, everything was looking up for the Madrid team until the Modrić news hit the internet.
Luca Modrić injury details
According to a tweet by Jose Luis Sanchez, Modrić has suffered a hip injury, which is more than likely to rule him out for over ten days.
This has given Real Madrid a great deal of concern. The 37-year-old Croatian midfielder has been their go-to man this season. He is playing sensational football. Controlling the midfield to his will and making it possible for Madrid to make the killer moves on the field that has kept them unbeaten this season so far.
As much as everyone in Madrid loves Modric and would like to see him on the field, it should not reflect too much on their performance. Given that they have some great depth in midfield this year.
Los Blancos squad includes players like Valverde, Camaviga, and Ceballos. This makes them look invincible on paper. And they have transferred that form on the pitch as well.
Real Madrid vs Barcelona
Currently, they have not lost a single point in La Liga and sit on top of the table. However, the upcoming weeks’ fixtures will not be easy. They face off against the only other unbeaten side in La Liga this season, Barcelona.
The new Barca side looks to be on a mission. But so is Real Madrid, to defend their hard-earned Santander title.
Therefore it will be a fascinating fixture to witness, given that the two sides can field their best eleven.
