Carlo Ancelotti stated that both David Alaba and Antonio Rudiger sustain injuries after the match against Las Palmas on Wednesday.
Alaba was replaced late in the first half against Los Amarillos after suffering an abductor injury, which will likely keep him out of Saturday’s encounter against Girona.
Rudiger played the entire 90 minutes of the team’s 2-0 victory, but he took a knock that has put him in danger for the match against Girona.
Los Blancos are already without Eder Militao due to a long-term knee injury, but Ferland Mendy has recently returned to fitness, while Dani Carvajal is back on the bench after overcoming a muscular condition.
“We’ve recovered Mendy and will recover Carvajal for the next game.”
“Rudiger has been touched; it’s a blow, but we believe he’ll be fine for the next game,” Ancelotti told reporters on Wednesday.
“The abductor has a problem with Alaba, and I doubt he’ll be there on Saturday.”
“We’ll have to wait and see how Rudiger and Nacho recover.” Marvel and [Alvaro] Carrillo, both from the academy, have also trained with us. “I believe Rudiger will be fine.”
Real Madrid are also without Thibaut Courtois, who has a long-term knee ailment, and summer signing Arda Guler, who has a thigh problem.
Los Blancos bounced back from a 3-1 setback to Atletico Madrid in the Madrid derby at the weekend with goals from Brahim Diaz and Joselu against Las Palmas on Wednesday.
Carlo Ancelotti provided media with player updates
“I’m concerned about the end of the second half, when we slowed down and lost control of the game, defending very low and with little intensity.” “We try to start strong to avoid problems and recover a lot of balls,” Ancelotti said after the game to reporters.
“In the first part, there was only failure, and in the second, there was only intensity.” It’s a time of year when all of the teams lessen their intensity because the wear and strain is significant.”
Guler’s injury, according to Ancelotti, will keep him out for “a little longer.”
“It was just bad luck.” He did great in training yesterday and even scored the game’s last goal. Then he felt something in his leg and receives a mild injury diagnosis,” the speaker said.
“The player was fine, so he’s unhappy.”
We still have a little time to wait. It’s a minor issue, but it hasn’t allowed him to be available and give him minutes today. That was the plan.”
Real Madrid has won six and lost one of their seven league games this season, totaling 18 points and placing them second in the rankings.
