Regrettably, Eduardo Camavinga, the highly skilled midfielder playing for Real Madrid, has suffered a knee ligament injury while on international duty with the French national team. This unfortunate incident further contributes to the increasing number of players unavailable for the Spanish club.
While participating in a training session with Les Bleus, Camavinga had a collision with Ousmane Dembele, the forward representing Paris Saint-Germain. Sources have indicated that the 21-year-old French player has suffered a tear in the lateral collateral ligament of his right knee. Real Madrid has been dealt a significant setback with this news, as they currently occupy the second position in La Liga, trailing surprise leaders Girona by just two points.
Although the exact duration of Camavinga’s absence remains uncertain, his unavailability will undeniably have a negative impact on a Madrid team that is already struggling with injuries. Notably, the absence of Aurelien Tchouameni, the defensive midfielder from France, due to a stress fracture in his left foot, further adds to their woes. Moreover, Thibaut Courtois and Eder Militao are also enduring long-term absences within the defensive unit. In addition, Arda Guler, a promising young player acquired from Fenerbahce in the previous summer, has not been able to play for Real Madrid due to a persistent knee injury. Moreover, Carlo Ancelotti, the team’s manager, has also faced another setback in the goalkeeper position. Kepa Arrizabalaga, brought in on loan from Chelsea as a temporary replacement for Courtois, suffered an abductor injury during the pre-match warm-up of Madrid’s latest UEFA Champions League match against Braga, which they emerged victorious with a 3-0 score.
