Double Injury Boost For Real Madrid

Real Madrid Receive Injury Boost Ahead of Athletic Club Clash

Real Madrid have received a double injury boost ahead of their crucial La Liga clash against Athletic Club on Sunday at the Santiago Bernabéu. Midfielders Eduardo Camavinga and Dani Ceballos are expected to be fit and available for selection, providing a timely personnel boost for coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Camavinga had set off alarm bells after limping out of France’s friendly against Chile on Tuesday night in the first half with an ankle injury. However, the young midfielder has avoided a serious injury and has only been diagnosed with a mild ankle sprain, meaning he should be at Ancelotti’s disposal this weekend.

Meanwhile, Ceballos had missed Real Madrid’s last match before the international break due to an ongoing fitness issue. The Spaniard has now returned to training with the rest of the squad on Wednesday, further bolstering the midfield options for Los Blancos according to Mundo Deportivo.

Ceballos took part in team training while also doing some individual work to recover from his calf injury. Although he is likely to be available for the Athletic match, the midfielder may start on the bench as a precautionary measure.

Real Madrid are still dealing with long-term ACL injuries to defenders Eder Militão and David Alaba, as well as goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. In their absence, the team has been relying on Antonio Rüdiger, Nacho, Aurélien Tchouaméni, and even Dani Carvajal in central defence.

Militão has been training with the team for the past three weeks and is eager to return to action before the end of the season, especially if Madrid advance in the Champions League. His recovery is going as expected, unlike Alaba and Courtois, who are facing longer spells on the sidelines.

The return of Camavinga and Ceballos is a welcome development for Real Madrid as they look to maintain their lead at the top of the La Liga table. The match against 4th-placed Athletic Club is an important one, and having a full-strength midfield will be crucial for Ancelotti’s side.

As the season enters its final stages, Real Madrid will be hoping to avoid any further injuries and maintain their momentum in both domestic and European competitions. The availability of key players like Camavinga and Ceballos will undoubtedly play a significant role in their pursuit of silverware.
