Dani Carvajal has recovered from his pericarditis and could return to the pitch fairly soon, according to AS. However, Real Madrid don’t want to rush his recovery as he could experience some problems if he tries to be active too soon.

Still, this is good news for Real Madrid as it means that Carvajal won’t be out for an extended amount of time.

Carvajal will most likely need to complete some fitness test and tough training sessions before he’s able to help Real Madrid again, given that he’s been resting all this time. Until he’s cleared and ready to go, Nacho will be the one playing on the right side of the defensive line now that both Marcelo and Theo Hernandez have also recovered from their injuries.

Real Madrid visit Getafe this Saturday and then they will host Tottenham next Tuesday in what could be a crucial game for this current Champions League Group Stage.
