Real Madrid's nightmare
The physical setbacks that Real Madrid is suffering in this first half of the season has made Zinedine Zidane's job very difficult.
. Although it seemed that his nightmare had appeased, it's come back in full force now: three injuries to key players all in one day, days before the Clasico.
As 'Marca' reports, it has been 29 since the season began in August. 16 players have been affected so far. A recurrent problem with no apparent solution.
Beyond Marco Asensio's serious injury, almost all injuries have been minor with players going out for a few weeks only. However, the group has definitely taken a hit.
Asensio is joined by Brahim, Jovic, Mendy, Courtois, Modric, Rodrygo, Hazard, James, Isco, Fede Valverde, Marcelo, Nacho, Kroos, Lucas Vázquez and Bale, all victims of the 'plague' that has taken over the Real Madrid squad.
