Real Madrid published the medical report on Isco, who won’t be available against Valencia with a hip injury. Sergio Ramos is also out for that game.

Following tests carried out on our player Isco Alarcón, he has been diagnosed with an impingement in his left hip. His recovery will continue to be assessed.

While Ramos will need two weeks to recover from his calf injury, it looks like Isco will be ready fairly soon and won’t miss more than a week. Still, coach Zinedine Zidane should probably rest him until Los Blancos take on PSG next February, given that they don’t have much to play for in La Liga before that game.

Isco’s spot in the starting lineup will probably be taken by Gareth Bale, meaning that the BBC of Karim Benzema, Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo will be back in the lineup, forcing coach Zidane to implement the 4-3-3 system once again.
