Dani Carvajal breaks again. The white youth squad suffered a muscle injury in last Tuesday's game against Chelsea And this Thursday he has undergone medical tests that have confirmed the extent of the ailment: suffers an “injury to the semimembranosus muscle of the right leg”, as specified in the medical report and will be off the pitch for at least three weeks.
This is to say goodbye to the season, because he would only return for a hypothetical Champions League final but he would do so without competition rhythm in a season that has been a real ordeal for the side in the physical section. Even if he recovered in time, it would be difficult to play.
Carvajal suffered the ailment in a play of the game against Chelsea. He tried to hold on, but had to be replaced by Odriozola. This Thursday he has not trained with the rest of his teammates because he has undergone medical tests that have confirmed the exact extent of the injury.
With his loss, Zidane finds himself with a serious problem on the right side. During almost the entire course he has used Lucas Vázquez in that area to make up for Dani's constant absences, but the Galician has also said goodbye to the season after the knee injury suffered in the Classic.
With this panorama, Zizou's options are reduced to converting Nacho to the right back or using Odriozola in that demarcation, a player he has not trusted throughout the season.
