Injury Crisis, Madrid Only Have 16 Players Ready to Use

Captain Sergio Ramos is reportedly unable to compete.

MADRID - Real Madrid began to prepare to face Levante this weekend. However, his determination to catch Atletico Madrid at the top of the Spanish League standings was hampered by injury problems. Quoted from Football Espana , Friday (29/1), there are only 16 players who can be played by Zinedine Zidane.

Captain Sergio Ramos is reportedly out of action, in an unofficial announcement. This means that Eder Militao will return to a duet with Raphael Varane at the heart of Madrid's defense. There are other players absent, namely Dani Carvajal and Lucas Vazquez as well.

Meanwhile, Fede Valverde and Rodrygo Goes have certainly suffered long injuries for Los Blancos. On the other hand, Nacho Fernandez still cannot be demoted due to Covid-19, along with Zidane who cannot accompany the team for the same reason.

Plus, Madrid has just loaned Luka Jovic and Martin Odegaard. That way, only 16 players are known to be ready to play in the first team. Currently, Los Blancos are seven points behind Atletico Madrid. But Los Rojiblancos still have a game in hand to further widen the gap with their city rivals.
