The Spanish right-back will not feature against Levante (home), PSG and Celta de Vigo (both away).

Dani Carvajal was diagnosed with an ankle injury yesterday and even though Real Madrid did not provide an estimated date for his return, he will be out three weeks.

That means that Carvajal will not be able to feature against Levante, PSG and possibly Celta de Vigo. Those last two matches will be played away from the Bernabéu and it would be extremely important for Madrid to win both of them.

With Danilo injured again, Arbeloa and Nacho will battle for the starting spot. Danilo seems to be on the last stage of his recovery process but it could be somewhat risky to start him that soon. However, Real Madrid are in a very difficult position with their right-backs and Benítez might have to take his chances and accelerate Danilo's recovery in order to have at least one elite defender for that flank against two teams that will be very hard to beat like Celta and PSG.
