Real Madrid have published a new medical report on midfielder Isco Alarcon, who had surgery this Tuesday and could miss one month due to appendicitis.

Isco will miss an important portion of Madrid’s season, given that Los Blancos face Sevilla and Atletico de Madrid this week. It will be important for Julen Lopetegui to find a reliable replacement, although Marco Asensio will almost surely start upfront with Benzema and Bale now that Isco isn’t available.

Ceballos could also get more minutes in the midfield, given that Isco was an option to replace both Modric or Kroos. Lopetegui could decide to make rotations sooner rather than later and Isco’s absence will surely hurt the team’s depth, so the midfielder will try to recover as soon as possible.
