Real Madrid has a new tenant in an infirmary that was already full. Frenchman Eduardo Camavinga suffered a sprain in his right knee in training with his national team. It is the first diagnosis that the Blue team has made public with a medical statement, after the midfielder left training on Wednesday limping after a collision with Dembélé.
The player immediately returns to Madrid's discipline to undergo further tests. If it is not this Thursday, the MRI would be done on Friday. At the white club they fear that they could lose Camavinga for eight weeks. If the worst deadlines are confirmed, the medium will not be able to play again until January.
Camavinga, 21, was called up for France to play in the European Championship qualifying match against Gibraltar in Nice on Saturday. In Wednesday's session, former Barcelona player Ousmane Dembélé, who wanted to dribble with him, lost his balance and fell with his weight on the white player's right knee.
Camavinga's loss is important for Madrid since he has participated in all 17 games this season, either as a midfielder or as a left back. In 13 of them he has been a starter. Only the Frenchman, Valverde and Rodrygo have been present in all the matches.
It is not only the quality of the young midfielder, who has just renewed until 2029, it is that he joins a long list of absences. In the last match against Valencia Ancelotti could no longer count on Bellingham, Tchouaméni, Kepa, Arda Güler, Ceballos, in addition to the long-term injured Militão and Courtois.
