The Real Madrid serious injury list grew in size yet again this week as Dani Carvajal suffered a calf injury. Madrid will be without the services of Carvajal for the whole of the festive period, and the next time that he’ll be available, we’ll be well in to 2024.
As Madrid travel to Real Betis, there is another fresh injury concern, in Luka Modric.
